Fantastic Forces!

What an exciting afternoon we have had in Year 5 and 6. We were lucky enough to have a visit from Bablake and we all took part in a forces workshop. We had lots of fun investigating many forces including water resistance, air resistance and friction. We even saw the effects of static electricity when Martha got charged up and her hair stood on end!

This week in Year 5…

We have had another exciting week in Year 5, brimming with success and celebrations!

Well done to the four children who represented All Souls’ in the annual Catholic Schools Maths Challenge. This was a competition against 10 other Catholic schools where there was a combination of individual and team rounds based on the Year 5 Maths curriculum. We came a whopping THIRD place! Well done to Callum, Regina, James and Martha! :)

Another big congratulations to the first chlidren in Year 5 to be awarded with their pen licence plus! You have worked so hard to earn this and should be very proud of yourselves.Keep up the hard work James, Regina, Issy, Martha and Grace!

Finally, our garden has started to bloom! The radishes and carrots have started to come through..it won’t be too long until we can pick and eat them! Here is some pictures of us planting and tending to the garden.

Year 4 RE – Pentecost

Yesterday in R.E. Year 4 performed interviews in the style of news reporters with one of the disciples who was present during Pentecost.

We are lucky to have some very natural performers in the class! Again, watch out for the blooper!

Cricket Year 5 and 6

This half term Year 5 and 6 have been playing cricket in P.E. So far they have learnt to bowl, field and play the drive shot. Yesterday they practiced the pull shot which is a shot played on the back foot unlike the drive which they learnt the week previous which is played on the front foot. Everyone managed to hit the ball, they concentrated on keeping their eyes on the ball trying to keep it down once hit so that they were not at risk of being caught out.

Below are a few photos from Year 5 playing the shot off a cone.

Biographical poems

Year 6 have been writing their own biographical poems to get them back into the swing of writing. We are so pleased with the amount of thought and effort they put into them.

Although they were all fabulous, here is one of my favourite:

 

Kayden

Child of Martine and Dean

Who loves his football, family and friends

Who dislikes ungratefulness, impoliteness and lies

Who wants to go to mysterious and curious places

Who wishes to enjoy every single moment of his life

Who is scared of growing up

Who dreams of world peace – to stop the wars

Who is determined to make the best out of life

Who values all the time spent with his family

Who spent the last few weeks of primary school finally enjoying it

Who is proud of working hard and is improving

Who lives in Coventry with his parents, brother, sister and unborn baby sibling.

Year 4 Brass Assembly

Thank you to those of you who came along to watch the Year 4 brass assembly today. The class did themselves proud with some great group, duet and solo performances. They have come a long way since September! Here are some photos and a video – more videos to follow.

Football Rally

Congratulations to the football who finished runners up in the football rally on Monday 16th May.

Having won our group with 2 wins and a draw the boys faced St Thomas More in the semi final, the only team to beat us in the league this year. As expected it was an extremely close game that finished 1 -1 at full time. This meant that the game had to go to golden goal extra time, however this couldn’t even separate the teams and therefore a player from each team was removed every minute until either 2 players remained or someone scored. Finally with only Ethan, James and Ryan left we managed to score a goal that took us through to the final.

The final was against St Augustine’s and although all of the children were either extremely worn out or injured they still managed to put in a great performance despite losing the game 1-0. Many of the children played in positions they were not used too and some even played through their injuries, this is a great credit to the boys who played really well as team throughout the competition. Well Done!

Below are pictures of the boys celebrating winning the league, a trophy they share with St Augustine’s as both schools finished with same amount points.

 

Uber Super Duper!

We are absolutely astounded by the fantastic auditions we watched this morning. It was obvious how much you all want this as you really shone today. Unfortunately, you have all made our job so much harder so will have to wait until tomorrow to announce the parts.

Please remember, each and every part is as important as the other and you will all make a fantastic contribution to our end of year production!

Y6’s Fun Day Friday!

I am sure this felt like the longest week for Year 6 but it the end of it is finally here… Happy Friday!

As a treat for all their early mornings and hard work, today we had a chill-out day so out came the jogging bottoms and hoodies and in came the beanbags!

We began the morning with some fun games in Spanish with Senorita Martin before having a good catch up on the playground in the sunshine.

Obviously every child in Year 6 was awarded class superstar this week as each and everyone of them have made us all incredibly proud.

After superstars, we got comfy on the beanbags, dished out the popcorn and took advantage of the well deserved rest as we watched Maleficent!

Unfortunately, not everyone managed to see it through to the end… Did they, Lisy?

Thank you to all the parents for sending in some delicious treats – We spent the afternoon replenishing our sugar levels that had been drained throughout the week in preparation for the afternoon’s talent show!

Dylan, Drew and Conrad became our deserving winners in our talent contest but there was definitely some stiff competition. Regardless, everyone who took part did a fantastic job – it was a perfect end to the week with so much laughter whilst reminding each other of our other hidden talents.

Once again, well done Year 6! Have a lovely weekend spending time with friends and family, eating, sleeping, playing, laughing and resting.

See you Monday!
