Thursday 4th March

Good morning, it's World Book Day!

Today we have lots of activities for you to enjoy and two zoom calls!


Whole school zoom at 9.30am

Hope everyone is well. Today we have a whole school zoom at 9.30am where you can wear your character costume! It will be so good to see everyone in the school on a zoom call! Login details have been sent to you via Tapestry.


Live lesson at 10.30am

We have also a live virtual visit with Nathan Byron and Dapo Adeola, author and illustrator of Look Up and Clean Up! This is at 10.30am and the link has been sent to you on Tapestry. It should be really interesting and good fun!


Lent reflection

I have added a link here to a Lent reflection. These short, reflective sessions will be available on the St Paul's video page everyday during Lent. They are a lovely way to begin the day with a little stillness and grounding. I hope you can enjoy them at a time of your choosing.
