Friday 22nd May

Good morning everyone,

Welcome to our final day of this half term. I wanted it to be a little celebration of how well you have all done to work in a new way. You have all worked so hard and have had super support from your parents. Mrs Rogers and I are so proud of you; you have been bright lights in a strange time. So below I have posted some of the videos sent to me yesterday of some of your brave friends reading out for you their version on an introduction to 'Where The Wild Things Are. smiley If you would like to share yours with me just email it to our Galileo class email;


First, in our video line up, a little message in behalf of Mrs Rogers and I...I've had to put this on our St. Paul's video page as it decided it would not upload onto here...follow the link below;






Our Morning Worship


You may remember a couple of weeks ago I invited anyone who may like to video a collective worship, prayer or song for us to share, would be more than welcome to do so. Well Olivia and Jacob sent this to me yesterday; it's a Wednesday Word on a Friday... because I couldn't wait! I am sure you will agree that they do a much better job than I do. Huge thanks Olivia and Jacob; it takes confidence and courage to do this and to share it with our St Paul's family...

Our ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ inspired story introductions...


 A huge thank you to these children for sharing their stories. Don’t worry if you don’t want to read yours out... I’m still trying to persuade Luca! 🤞

Origami boat scenes


I thought you might also be inspired to see these boat scenes. Xavier has included the wolf design he had included in his story - and what a super background! Olivia's truly is a 'Dream Scene' and makes me want to jump in and sail away! If you haven't had chance to look yet, these ideas are on our 'Topic Page' under Art. I'm going to do one this afternoon! Do continue to send your work and I'm going to put a celebratory gallery together... if you are happy to share. smiley

Our Religion Learning Today


I will explain this in my video below...


Our learning outcome is to know that Jesus went back to heaven and to reflect on what this meant for his disciples.

The worksheet is in your pack. Just in case you can't find it, here it is. You only need the second sheet.

Our Art Task


Our main art task this week is our origami boat challenge. To make this linked to your ‘Where the Wild Things Are‘ story is a great idea, as you’ve seen from Olivia and Xavier. Decorate Your boat to match your story or personality. But here is an extra idea...
