Our end of year trip to London is fast-approaching and so here are a few little reminders ahead of our big day out!

  • Departure: be at school by 6.30am as the minibuses will be departing at 6.45am promptly
  • Travel Sickness: please give your child this in the morning and provide for the way home in a named envelope if necessary
  • Clothing: come dressed in All Souls’ PE kit and trainers with a sunhat

**The weather looks set to be fine so shorts and t-shirt are fine (with hoody in backpack) but please keep an eye on the forecast in case joggers are more suitable on the day**

  • Backpack: lunch, refillable water bottle, snacks, raincoat & suncream
  • Medication: inhalers if asthmatic and other medication to be labelled with instructions in a named envelope
  • Money: we recommend £10 for souvenirs
  • Other: children can bring items (non-electronic) to keep them entertained on the minibus journeys
  • Camera/phone: to take lots of photos!

**Please be aware that all phones will be switched to airplane mode as children will not be allowed to use them for any form of communication throughout the day**

  • Arrival: we aim to be back at school by 9pm approx. but please keep up-to-date with our twitter feed as we will update you further with regards to traffic.


We hope you are all as excited as we are to make lots of memories during your last ever trip with us here at All Souls’!

Homework Projects

WOW! What a fabulous effort the children have made once again! It was so lovely to see such an array of projects showing off the topics each class has been studying this term – and their talents. We really are lucky to have such creative children!

Thank you to everyone who facilitated their child in creating their masterpieces and to all who came to view the children’s projects this afternoon. Your support, as always, is greatly appreciated.

Transition Day

Year 5 have really enjoyed exploring what it is going to be like to be a member of the Year 6 classroom. Here are some of their fabulous pixel pictures and biographical poems that will look great on display!


We began the day with some handwriting to get ready to hopefully earn some more pen licences before competing in a Spelling Bee competition. Congratulations to Bethlehem who won some sweeties for their excellent efforts!

In Engish, the children were set the task of writing a piece of persuasive writing to persuade me, Miss Quinn and Mrs McCloskey to let them be a part of Year 6 next year. After reading them all, we have decided to give them the chance to keep to their (very!) persuasive promises and allow them to enter Year 6 in September!

In teams of three, children then had to work against the clock to solve some mathematical problems, focusing on using the inverse operations. Each problem gave them a digit to the four-digit-code they needed to unlock their padlock. Once they had calculated their four digits, they then had to work together to try and find all possible combinations to hopefully unlock the box! Some children managed this a lot soon than others but they all managed to free their hidden treasure eventually!

In the afternoon, they became scientists! Their task was to use a range of equipment that they had been given to carry out an investigation based around a question of their choice. They all had lots of fun doing it – ask them what they found out!

Finally, we ended the day by revealing our first class reader. After listening to the first couple of pages of each book, the class then voted for their favourite before revealing the winning book and delving in!

We are all really looking forward to welcoming everyone back in September!
