Speed Sainting

What a fabulous afternoon ‘Speed-Sainting’!

Thank you to each and every person who came to support Year 6 in their prepararation for receving the Sacrament of Confirmation this weekend. It was fantastic to listen to the children talk so confidently about their chosen saint and really was such a valuable experience for them all.


Well done Year 6!

We are all incredibly proud of the attitude, determination and resilience of each and every Year 6 child this week. They really have given the SATs their all, showing off all that they have worked so hard to achieve.

Today we celebrated with a ‘chill out’ day. We began the morning by revealing the end of year play, Ye-Ha, and were very surprised by a very welcome visit from Mrs Ellis who has come back to put her musical talents to good use!
Everyone is very excited for the auditions next week!

Good Luck Year Six!

Wishing lots of luck to all our friends in Year Six who are sitting their SATs this week. Just do your best and let your light shine!

Please continue to keep the children in your prayers this week.

Year 6’s ‘Pub Quiz’

To end our revision sessions in preparation for SATs next week, Year 6 took part in a pub-style quiz to test their maths, reading and SPaG knowledge. Each round focused on a different aspect, ending with some trickier questions in their bonus round on ‘Staff Knowledge’.

The children tucked into some crisps and popcorn whilst sipping their drinks and battling it out to win a prize.

They put their heads together to try and win each round.

It was close but the winners were…

Well done!

Good luck for next week Year 6 – get ready to show off everything you’ve learnt! 🙂

Chalk Stencils

Though the weather has been against us this week, Year 5 finally found a chance between rain showers to put our Banksy style stencils into action.



Testing these stencils has really helped the children to see what is and isn’t effective as we progress on to other mediums, such as paint.

Expect to see these same designs around the classroom in weeks to follow.

American Football

Year 5 and 6 took part in the first American Football lesson at All Souls for over 10 years. The children absolutely loved learning this new sport and how to throw the ball like a quarter back. We definitely have some young Tom Brady’s at our school.
