This Wednesday, Year 5 will be participating in the Coventry Catholic school’s “Morning of Music.” This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to gather together to sing and play instruments and celebrate the love of music. This year’s theme is “Throughout Time” and so the songs the children have been practising in their music lessons all have a history theme. All Souls’ party piece (that we must perform to the other schools) is us singing the Ancient Greek alphabet, which fits nicely with our new history topic. Please ensure that your child is practising reciting this alphabet at home!
On Wednesday, the children should arrive to school at normal time and in full school uniform. They will travel by minibus to Holy Family School, where the event will take place, and they will return back in time for lunch. Unfortunately, there is no capacity for parents to come along to watch this event.
Thank you to all those parents and friends of the school who came along to our annual Saint Patrick’s Coffee Morning! We hope you all enjoyed it. Over £800 was raised towards our school – thank you so much for your support!
Unfortunately the Coventry Half Marathon has been cancelled due to the expected severe weather over the weekend. They have not yet announced whether this is to be rescheduled or not.
Below is the officil statement from the organisers.
URGENT NOTICE – Coventry Half and Children’s Mile 2018 Race Cancellation
It is with deep regret that the event has been cancelled due to the Met Office forecast of adverse weather conditions.
There is currently a Yellow warning for ice on Sunday for the Coventry area and an Amber warning for snow and ice in the North Midlands. There is also standing water on the route which will likely be frozen on Sunday morning and we are particularly concerned about the -8 degree wind chill and the safety of volunteers and stewards.
The organisers have not taken the decision lightly, and have consulted with the local authorities and medical support before making this decision.
We have taken this decision now to avoid unnecessary travel to the event.
A further announcement will be made in due course.
Many thanks for your understanding for this very tough decision.
The ‘Baptism and Belonging’ session tomorrow will begin at Hearsall Baptist Church on Queensland Avenue at 17:00. We will then make our way up to All Souls’.
I hope we can continue to excellent turnout from our Speed Sainting event.
Below is an update from the organisers of the Coventry Half Marathon. They are thinking of cancelling the run due to severe weather conditions expected over the weekend. Please check back here or on our social media for updates. You can also find more information on the Coventry Half Marathon Facebook page.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – WEATHER UPDATE
We have been closely monitoring the forecast through the day as weather conditions have worsened with the yellow warning for snow and ice for Sunday. High winds and cold weather means the forecast is currently showing a wind chill of -9 degrees.
In light of these conditions and following further consultation with Coventry City Council, the event Medical Director and other agencies we will review tomorrow if the Half Marathon and the Children’s Mile will proceed.
We will make a further announcement to all runners at 2 pm tomorrow (Friday 16th March) on our website, facebook and email on the status of the race.
Thank you for your understanding.
Year 4 led a beautiful and reflective penitential service with Father Michael today, in which we listened to the Gospel to remind us of the story of Jesus in the desert and thought about times when we may not have shown love.
Thank you to Father Michael for guiding the children in their confessions. Year 4 have promised as they continue their journey of love throughout Lent, they will try very hard to make the right choices just like Jesus did.
*Thank you also to the parents at the end of the day who were very patient in waiting for the children to finish this very special time – it was greatly appreciated.
Well done to the twelve lucky children from Years 3 and 4 who have been chosen to represent All Souls at the Tokyo 2020 conference taking place tomorrow.
This exciting event is to start preparing for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2020. Children attending this conference will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of cultural and sport workshops linked to Japan and the Olympic Games. Activities will include manga art; calligraphy, origami, ikebana, taiko drumming and martial arts. The children will create an action plan of sporting and cultural events that they would like to lead across the city. The children who attend the conference will also have the opportunity to train to be a Coventry Young Ambassador representing Coventry at major events.
The event will include a welcome speech from the Minister from the Embassy of Japan and Noel Thatcher MBE at 9.30am. They will have a live link to the Olympic Association in Tokyo and the event will also be live streamed so that you will be able to see some of activities taking place here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzHKnvyDEKspRdonugReayg/featured.
Just to remind you that all children should bring a packed lunch (preferably disposable), a bottle of water and wear their full All Souls PE kit. Children will depart school at 8.30am, so need to ensure prompt arrival in the morning, and will arrive back to school by 3pm ready for usual collection.
We can’t wait to hear all about it!
Thank you to everyone who came along to support Year 6 in their Confirmation preparation this evening by attending our Speed Sainting evening. The children were fantastic, speaking to a number of different adults about their choice of saint.
Well done all!
We hope you liked the Mother’s Day cards that your children in Year 5 made for you. The children really enjoyed making the cards and considering why we are thankful for our mums, step mums, aunties, grandmas and all the other people that look after us at home. It was so lovely to hear the reasons why you are all so loved. I hope you had a happy and relaxing day on Sunday.
Remember that our coffee morning is taking place on Friday 16th March, from 9:15am-11:15am. All parents and friends of the school are welcome! Entrance to the event will cost £3 per person, which includes unlimited tea and coffee and a selection of cakes on each table. Additional cakes will also be on offer to purchase, either to eat at the event or to take home for later. Raffle tickets and Irish coffees will also be available for sale on the morning.
On the day itself, all children can come to school dressed up in the Irish colours. In return, we ask that the children bring in cakes that can be sold at the coffee morning. Due to the fact that getting hundreds of cakes ready on the morning is extremely hectic, this year, children are requested to bring these in on the days leading up to the event if at all possible please.
This event relies whole-heartedly on the generosity of our school community and is vital in raising funds for the school, so your support for this is very much appreciated- thank you in advance!
