It was time to say goodbye to our Year 6 and tissues were
at hand for parents and staff to dry their eyes as we
watched our wonderful children sing, dance and share their
memories of Worlebury St Paul's.
The Mayor of Weston-super-Mare, Councillor Mrs Rosslyn
Willis handed out bibles that were kindly donated by
Oldfield Trust and the Friends of Worlebury St Paul's to
each of our Year 6 children.
Good luck Year 6 - we will miss you.
Tag rugby club finished with a mini tournament this

skills which they had developed over the term.
The children were very enthusiastic and really enjoyed
At the beginning of term 5, Year 5 were lucky enough to
experience a drama workshop delivered by an expert from
Bristol Old Vic Theatre Company. The workshop was based on A
Midsummer Night's Dream which was the focus of our poetry

Both groups then watched the other perform and critically
evaluated their performance. It was a very exciting morning,
enjoyed by all, and we were only sorry that it didn’t last
Year 5 were given the opportunity to
use the resources in Priory ICT suite in a series of four
workshops delivered by Priory’s head of ICT, Mr T Pound.
Each child was able to logon to their own Mac computer where
they accessed software called Scratch. The children were
shown how to programme this software to create their own
game of Pong. It was quite tricky and very complicated but
the children persevered and some of the results were
This was an experience enjoyed by all
of the children and their new skills will hopefully be
utilised next year when the children may be given an
opportunity to demonstrate how to programme Scratch to other
