Hello Year 5
Hello year 5! So this is it, the final week of what has been the most bizarre academic year ever. As much as it is s strange end there is so much to look forward to come September when hopefully we can return to some form of normality. I hope you enjoy your summer holidays, make sure you relax and enjoy time with your families. Come in well rested in September ready to hit the ground running!
Final Week Challenge
There is no new home learning pack this week but do feel free to go back over the old packs as I am sure there will be some work in there to complete.
I do however have one final challenge for you and it is one I think you will enjoy. Your task is to create a Lockdown Timeline. This timeline will start from when the school closed in March and run through to the final week of term. It can include pictures, memories, key events, birthdays, work you are proud of and anything else you can think of! It could be presented on paper or using ICT. This will hopefully be a brilliant memento of this strange time and one that you can look back on when this all seems a distant memory. I hope you enjoy!
A Massive Thanks
I just wanted to use this final weekly message to say thank you to all the KS2 staff for the last few months. I know how hard you have worked and the efforts you have put in to keep the website up to date, the work available and being on hand to answer questions from parents and children. I am sure that all of the KS2 children and parents will join me in saying THANK YOU!
As always if you want to share work that you have done with your teachers then send it via the admin email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and staff will have it sent on to them. The Home Learning Gallery is always worth looking at to see what your friends and classmates have been up to.
Stay safe and speak soon,
YEAR 5/6 CHALLENGE!
Here is a message from Jonty. He has thought up a challenge for us all to do.
"I thought of a really fun idea for yr5 and 6 to do during lockdown!
Basically, you get your favourite teddy and hide/put it in the weirdest or funniest places! I have a few to show you but I thought maybe all of Yr5 and 6 could do a challenge in this boring time!"
Pictures will be posted in the gallery below so get to work 5/6 , we cant wait to see the results, teachers as well!
Thank you Jonty, such a great idea!
AS FROM THIS WEEK- MONDAY 4th MAY, WE WILL BE PROVIDING THE WHITE ROSE ACTIVITIES. YOU CAN ACCESS WEEKS 1 AND 2 ON WEBSITE. YOU NEED TO WATCH THE VIDEO AND WORK THROUGH THE ACTIVITIES PROVIDED.
Miss Green's Weekly Update
Hello Team. Thank you for being such an amazing group of children and making my first year of teaching so much fun. I know it was bit of a funny ending to the year but you have all tried so hard and you should all be really proud of yourselves. I have learnt so much from every single one of you and you made my job so easy and rewarding.
Year 5's - I am so excited that I get to teach you all again next year. I was so impressed with your work ethic and love for learning last year and I can't wait to see how you all develop in year 6. Just think of all the marbles you are going to collect!!
Year 6's - I wish you all the best of luck at secondary school, I know you will all be amazing! The year 5's, Mrs Wellicome and I are going to miss you so much next year but we are so excited for your new adventure. Keep in touch to let me know how you all are and hopefully I will get to see you all again as some point.
I hope you all have an amazing summer holiday. My challenge for all of you is to try something new!
5/6C was the best team EVER!!!

Well 5/6B we have reached the end of what has been a vert strange academic year! I know that this has not been the ending that we would have wanted but I have still absolutely loved this year with you all. You are such a lovely bunch of children and have made my job so much fun as I get to work with all of you!
Year 5 - Next year I will get all of you back and I can not wait! There will be lots to look forward to and I know you will relish the challenges that year 6 offers.
Year 6 - It has been amazing being your teacher. I have seen all of you go through the school (some of you from nursery through to year 6) and I will look back on all that we have done with find memories. Good luck for secondary school and remember that St Paul's is a family and we are always here for you.
Enjoy your summer holidays, relax, have fun and be good for your parents.

With love from
What on earth has happened to the weather. Will this rain ever go away... Ruby says it is my fault for getting carried away and singing along with all the old Glastonbury shows but I can't believe she is right . We had to have a little bit of a party (just as) as, if Lockdown hadn't happened, we would have been staying in Sherwood Forest and watching Noel Gallagher who I love.
This week has been a bit busy. Daddy Day-Care meant Ruby didn't get very much homeschooling done last week so we have a lot of catching up. Plus, as my Toasty Bubble team know-Ruby also decided to launch herself down a very steep, gravelly hill on her longboard. She almost made it to the bottom but it didn't end terribly well...
We went to Nottingham to see Ruby's cousins and it was so busy on the roads it took us two hours instead of one. it made me feel sad to see so many lorries and cars back on the roads. This weekend we are planning lots of bike rides plus, of course, Joe Wicks on Saturday.
Have a lovely weekend everyone and I am so looking forward to seeing my Toasty bubble next week.
Please check their amazing work. I have a group of very talented artists.
Take care and please keep emailing in your work-it's so lovely to see.
Star Learners for this week:
MRS CLAY'S DANCE CHALLENGE
This is my challenge to you all- learn the moves and we will perform together as a school when we return (even the teachers!)
Year 5's I have uploaded some arithmetic papers. Use them like a text book. I would recommend you do 1 booklet a week, answering a few questions a day. There are 10 pages, so you could do 2 pages a day. Remember to try your best, show your working out, ask for help and most importantly HAVE FUN!!
