Primary 2/3 have been busy during maths week. 30th September – 4th October. One of our activities was counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. We went outside to create hopscotch games with chalk for the children to play on.
St Paul’s Primary is the only school in Renfrewshire that is part of the Cash for Kids School Challenge. Their aim is to raise as much money as possible for Cash for Kids. It’s ALL for a charity that responds to the needs of children in OUR community, aspires to enable all children to live life to the full and achieve their individual potential. The St Paul’s Primary children will be involved in an exciting challenge, fundraising for a worthy cause that will help these children and families massively with the chance of winning £2500 for their school needs. This will benefit the children of St Paul’s Primary greatly and allow for fantastic opportunities for the children.
Here is the link to their fundraising page, Your support would be greatly appreciated.
Did you know that there is British sandwich week? Primary 1/2 thought this was a perfect opportunity to make some sandwiches as part of their Lighthouse Keepers Lunch topic. They were very tasty indeed! This was a few weeks ago now, but look at our great efforts.
Primary 1/2 have some very “eggciting” news to share with you! Our eggs have started to hatch and we have 10 healthy chicks! All classes will get to share in the fun and see them. P1/2 parents will get the opportunity to meet our newest class members on Monday 4th March at 2.15pm.
P3/4 have been working on an new topic about Airports. On Monday 17th December, they visited Glasgow Airport. Loganair arranged a fun filled and exciting day which included a visit to check-in and a journey through security where the children had a chance to guess what was in the bag as it was x-rayed. They then went up to airfield ops. and watched aircraft take off and land.
Next, they got a thrill as they boarded a Loganair SAAB 2000 aircraft. On-board, they chatted to two pilots in the cockpit and were served biscuits and juice by the cabin crew.
The children had a wonderful time and would like to thank the airport staff for an enjoyable day.
On Friday P7 attended a Remembrance Service in Braemount Care Home. Before the service the children spent some time speaking to the residents, who had written some of their war memories on poppy cards. After the service, which was conducted by Canon Eddie, the children created a Garden of Remembrance with the poppies.

Primary 4 pupils are to be involved in an exciting project to raise brown trout from eggs in a special classroom hatchery. The Clyde in the Classroom project is a Clyde River Foundation initiative that uses the life-cycle of a native Scottish species, the brown trout, to encourage children to engage with nature and develop a positive attitude towards their local environment and its conservation. On Friday 12th January the pupils had a very interesting visit to the Glasgow Science Centre for the project launch.
They are now eagerly awaiting the arrival of the eggs and hatchery to their classroom, where they will raise the trout and then release them into the environment before the Easter break.
We will keep you posted on how they are progressing.

On Wednesday 10th May all of the children in the school and the nursery took part in a special ‘Walk a Mile’ activity. This is part of the ‘STAR Project’s See Me’ Mental Health Campaign. All of the children had a chance to walk a mile and chat to other children that they may not have spoken to before.
It was a lovely event and great to see so many parents/carers come and join in with the walk.
