“One, Two, Three, Four…. , St Paul’s School Marine Corps….”

Wow! What a week!! We had a very exciting week when the mini marines came to spend our WOW week with us. The children had lots of fun playing tag rugby and tug of war, experiencing real life marine drills and ended the week with a campfire toasting marsh mallows. They improved their physical fitness performing ‘planks’ and press ups, working with mini weights and some simple jogging.

As well as having fun, the children also worked really hard on their team building skills and learned some valuable life saving skills. They worked outside their comfort zone and showed great resilience and       perseverance when things got tough. Well done to all our mini marines!

 

Year 5 and 6 Residential

It has been a quiet few days at St Paul’s as many of your Year 5 and 6 are enjoying their residential trip. They have had lots of fun so far, even though it has been a bit cold, wet and misty!! More news to follow after half term.

  

Harvest Festival

A huge thank you to everyone who donated to our Harvest Collection for Gloucester Foodbank - we were overwhelmed by your generosity. Thank you also to those who were able to join us for our Harvest Service; it was lovely to see so many of you there. All donations have now been passed to the Foodbank.

  

Clubs after half term…

Over half term the clocks go back, and therefore it will get dark much earlier in the evening. For this reason we will NOT be allowing children to walk home at the end of after-school clubs, and ask that they are collected by an adult. Children will still be allowed to walk home after school at the normal time. Thank you for your understanding.

 

A big welcome back to Mrs Tracy Matthews who is returning to us following her maternity leave. Mrs Matthews will re-join us as Class Teacher in Phase 1 on Mondays and Tuesdays.
