A while ago Year 5 went on a fantastic trip to the Barbican to learn about Roald Dahl. They found out some mind blowing facts about the much loved author, some of them I didn’t even believe when they told  me!
   The lucky class went there to celebrate the 100th birthday of Roald Dahl and were able to watch someone act out a scene from  little red riding hood in one of the few front rows in the large theatre. They also sang some book-related songs and enjoyed a ‘delicious’ packed lunch.

Members of Year 5 explained that it was a brilliant trip and they will never forget the facts they learned that day.

The School Carol Singing

The school carol singing was on 14th December 2016 we were singing loads of song like silent night, come and joins the celebration and lots more songs.

 We were singing for 1 hour from 5pm to 6pm. We were singing for a school called Bowa school. We raised roughly £150 in total.

We were singing in the Swiss cottage underground station. Some of us came to school and went to the underground but some of us met up in the station. I came back to the school and followed to the station.

There were some people who was dancing or doing the solo. It was really fun doing it.

We Have Had A Wonderful Term

We have had fantastic Christmas term looking into the break. We are breaking up today  for Christmas at home. This term we have celebrated Christmas with carol singing, our nativity and famous (International) Christmas Fair.

We, in the classes, had small Christmas party that we thoroughly enjoyed  the celebration. Today, in church we had a carol service an yesterday we had a Christmas lunch.

Now, we will relax having a great break relaxing ready for the Easter term we are all looking forward to.

Camden Football League

The Camden Football league has started and St Pauls is on fire. So far the girl’s team have won all of their matches in three weeks which is seven games. In our first week we played Beckford whom we beat by 3-0 (three nil) followed by a match with Carlton with a result of 2-0 (two nil). The last match of the day was played against Kentish Town school also two nil. At the end of the day we came home happy with our turn out. The next week we only played two games one of them against St Eugues which we were victorious by 6-1.We then won by 3-0 to Rhyl school.

On our third week we beat Holy Trinity by 6-0 followed by a good game against Hampstead Parochial which we won by 6 to 1.

All the scores added puts us first on the leaderboard with twenty eight points and a difference of nine goals between us and second place. Luckily we have only had two goals scored against us so when we come back in January we will be able to keep our title of first position.

Merry Christmas

Trip to ICE

On the 29th, Yr6 went to the ICE (Institute of Civil Engineers). We had enjoyable, hands on day. The journey wasn’t too long on the tube and when we entered the building, everyone saw the intricate Christmas display (too early). As Yr6 entered the main room, a giant Guinness Book Record holding Lego Severn bridge replica stood in front of us! We spent the day learning a lot about bridges and everyone had fun.

Christmas Dinner.

At our school before end of the term we have Christmas dinners (on 15th December 2016).

Normally we have to sit in our lunch place while we eat our lunches but for this Christmas dinner day we get to sit where ever we want in the lunch hall. If you are a school dinner already you don’t need to pay for this lunch but if you are a packed lunch you need to pay about £2.40 for the dinner. There is so much food for main courses like chicken, salad and many more. Our school also has deserts like ice creams. We can sit wherever we want.  We can talk to people around us.  It makes a very nice community.    

Year One Class Assembly

On Friday our lively  year one class put on a brilliant assembly about Florence Nightingale. The class taught  us all about Florence’s life and performed a fact-filled rap in front the school. Mums, Dads, Grandparents and even a few younger siblings seemed to glow as they watched their little ones shine. We have spoken to two children who confidently shared their opinion on the performance.

What is your favourite fact about Florence Nightingale: I like the idea that her nickname is ‘lady with the lamp’

Have you been practising a lot for your assembly: YES! It has taken a week for us to put that together!

If you could meet Florence Nightingale, what would you say: I would ask her lots of questions about her life. 

A Wonderful Christmas Fair

On Saturday there was a wonderful Christmas fair lots of people turned up so the market was very packed. We raised a whopping about £10 000 for the school. We are pleased that with are total and use the money to improve the school. Not only did we raise lots of money for the school we had a enjoyable raffle, a fun tombola and a wonderful Santa’s grotto. Everyone who came I think thought it was worth it and bought great presents for friends and family. It was a pleasurable fair.

It’s Beginning To Look A lot Like Christmas

As many of you know, the much loved St Pauls Christmas fair is almost here. The festive season has arrived and everybody is busy preparing for the tombola, decorations, cafĂ© and much more. The Christmas fair is the most important event of the school year as it always raises the most money for our partnership school in Malawi. Our team is currently sitting with  FOSPA who are hectic in preparation for the big day.
We have interviewed the loyal chair of FOSPA so you can take a step into her shoes.

“As the chair of FOSPA, I feel slightly nervous about the fair because we are still a bit behind schedule and there is still a lot to get done in a fairly small amount of time. However, we have a great team who have come together to organise a brilliant variety of prizes. We have had a huge amount of support this year and people are already getting excited about all the snazzy gifts that will be sold tomorrow. All the the old favourite stalls will be put on as well as new ones like a Christmas photo booth and other fun things.  Santa’s Grotto have brilliant presents this year and we hope that many members of the public will come to enjoy our traditional fun at the St Pauls Christmas Fair and hope it is a big success.”

What Katina does:

Katina marinades between 300 to 400 pieces of chicken. On Saturday morning she cooks it and serves it to the people in the chritsmas fair. She gets all the Y6 people if they have jobs for the chritmas fair, she does elf costumes and helps on the stall she gives you elf costumes and many more things. She makes wonderful outfits.

A few days before christmas fair the school hall gets packed full of donation for the christmas fair shops. By the way they make some outside in the playgrouned. They have food shops out side and in side if its home made they make the food on the day.They would put stuff in the boxes to put in the Christmas fair. And the table they will bring by hand. That’s how they do this for the Christmas fair. It is quite hard.

Christmas Fair Preparation

We asked the parents firstly what they do about the Christmas fair. The parents said it is quite stressful, because it is hard work for them. They all really enjoy this. Some adults really like doing it because they like folding raffle tickets because it makes them calm. It is quite hard because there are so many things that many people donated. In the kids tombola they sell loads of stationary loads of toys let’s say many things the children like.

For the adults tombola they sell wine, food and coffee, let’s say some kids don’t really like it they find it boring.

For the adult tombola green ticket and children’s is pink tickets. Adults vs. Children’s tombola which one is better please vote.
If you get a ticket that ends in 0 or 5 you get a prize but if you get one that end in 1 2 3 4 6 7 8 9 you don’t get any.

Christmas Fair

So whenever you enter in the Christmas fair you will be seeing stalls. There are Elf’s on the way to Santa’s grotto. Every Christmas fair we make something to see and you get to buy your own.

 Some kids help with the stalls some people even help with hot chocolate stall. We do a lot of actives and some of them you can win prizes. There are stalls outside but if you are cold there are stuff to play with. Indoors there are loads of things to play around there try out knew things, and buy toys. If you are lucky maybe you can win a big prize by too. There is a group which is called choir, there are 30 people they sing about Christmas and they do it for everyone. There are more things you can play with like guess the rabbit s name to get the rabbit. There is how many sweets in the jar and guess where is the treasure on the map. There is an adult tombola and children tombola. There is this really big Christmas tree.

Christmas Nativity

 It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and what better way to celebrate than our St Paul’s school nativity this year. If you have been to our nativity before you will probably remember the roles of the key stage one. Our new group of receptions will play the roles of the angels, while a few children from year one will put on a tablo of the arrival of baby Jesus. And the rest of year one will be sheep and shepherd’s. Year two will be carrying the christingles across the stage to one of our traditional nativity songs, following your star. the rest of the school will be performing a new and exciting play to be revealed on the big day. So if you are feeling festive and in the Christmas mood on Wednesday 7th  December come to our unique St Paul’s Nativity.

A chef who served us long and hard now must leave. He has served at the school for nine long years ,almost cooking around 365000 meals for the children at the school.  We must say goodbye,  wishing him luck in the future and a fond farewell to our chef.
His food fed the hundreds cooking the most tasty meals of course he is not replaceable and he was as kind as his food. We will be sad to say goodbye and will struggle without him.
