World Book Day takes place on Thursday, 2nd March. Children should have already been issued with a £1 World Book Day token but if, for any reason, a child hasn’t received a token, please ask him/her to see Mrs Hands.
On Thursday, we are looking forward to seeing our pupils dressed as characters from books that they have read and enjoyed. For this privilege, they will be asked to donate one pound. The money raised through these donations will be used to purchase exciting new books for our school library.
From Monday, the children can bring in their books for the recycling event which will also be held on Thursday. Please make sure that the donated books are in a good condition. We hope that the children have been busy during the half term break designing and beginning to create their potato book characters. These potato characters, which need to be brought in on Thursday and not before, will be displayed for all pupils to see, and one winner will be chosen from each class.
Thank you for your support.
Year 6 are ending their literacy unit for this half term by watching The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas this afternoon, in their pyjamas of course!
They have had a fabulous start to the Spring term. We can’t quite believe we’re half way through the year!
Have a happy half term!
Thank you to all those who have brought back your reply slips and money for Mad Science Club.
It will now definitely be running and the first session will begin Wednesday 15th February at 3.15pm.
There are still places available so I will leave it until the end of today to confirm numbers with them.
Year 5 have been writing the scripts for their e-safety radio advert today! Tomorrow we will be recording the adverts ready to enter the competition! I wonder what the best slogan will be?
Last week, Mad Science hosted an assembly to the whole school to advertise their exciting after school club. Children were given letters to take home and we received 11 eager reply slips. However, for this club to run, there needs to be 15 children. Therefore, unfortunately, if we do not have 15 scientists signed up by Friday 10th February, we will have to cancel the club and all monies paid will be refunded. If you would like a new letter then please ask your child to collect one from me. If you have already paid, we will keep you updated.
At All Souls Primary School we have decided to extend Safer Internet Day to the whole week. Children will be learning how to stay safe online and what to do if they do if they see or hear something inappropriate. As part of our computing curriculum children are taught how to be safe online throughout the year therefore these lessons are used to reinforce what they should already know.
Also as part of Safer Internet Week we are taking part in a series of competitions with other schools from our cluster group. Children in all year groups from 1 – 6 produce a piece of work around keeping safe on the internet. After they have completed the work the best pieces will be entered against the other schools where impartial judges will decide an overall winner. Each winner will each receive an amazon give voucher – good luck!
Below are a few photos of Y3 and Y6 children completing their task.

We will also be holding another Internet Safety meeting later in the year for those who could not attend the previous meeting.
Remember to keep safe on online

Today the children in year three visited the Herbert Art Gallery to explore and learn more about sculptures, how they are made and the different types. The children also got the chance to make their very own sculptures out of clay. The children had a fantastic day and showed some super skills at making sculptures, we may have some budding Donatellos on our hands in the not so distant future. Thank you all for your support in allowing the children to go, they really gained lots from it. Please ask them all about their morning, I’m sure they would love to tell you what they got up to 🙂
Year 4 will be visiting Bishop Ullathorne tomorrow (Thursday 2nd February) for the Modern Foreign Languages Day.
Bishop Ullathorne have arranged the transport and will be providing lunch. Children need to be at school for normal time in full school uniform. We will be back at school before 15:00.
