School Trips….

Following a postponement due to heavy rain, Phase 1 finally manage their trip to the Dean Heritage Centre. They had great fun squelching in the mud, and exploring the trees, touching the bark, roots and moss (which felt like a woodland carpet!). They even saw the famous, but reclusive, Gruffalo! Some children, listening really closely, even managed to hear some leaves falling!

And last week, Year 5 enjoyed a day at Selly Manor, a beautiful Tudor manor house in Bournville, to complement their Tudor theme ‘Off with her Head”. They had a tour of the Tudor house, leaning about Tudor food and cooking techniques. They were also able to try on Tudor costumes and played some Tudor games.


Please remember our special coffee morning on Friday 8th December from 9.00 to 10.00 to celebrate Mrs Geatches’ time with us St Paul’s, and to wish her well for the future!

Tea, coffee, juice and cake will be provided! We hope to see as many of you as possible.

On behalf of our photographers, we apologise for the late arrival of our school photos. This was due to an error within their print department. The prints have now arrived and are being sent home with your child today.

The photographers will be collecting our orders at 11.00am on Friday 8th December, and have guaranteed that any orders placed will be returned to school in time for distribution before the end of term. Please could you therefore ensure that all orders are returned to the office by Friday 8th     December in order for them to process your order before Christmas.
