Around the world ninety minutes!

We had a wonderful end to the year with our ‘Across the World’ party. The children looked fantastic and we enjoyed eating food from around the world. Below we have included some photographs of the day.

Pizza!

As part of their D&T topic Year 4 made pizzas on Wednesday. Each pair brought in their toppings and everyone made the bases from scratch. The whole class worked fantastically well together and should be really proud of what they produc

ed. They tasted good too!

End of year play – Reminders

  • On Monday and Tuesday, children should come wearing their PE kit – it can get very warm when rehearsing!
  • Children should be wearing their school pumps to protect their floor. If for some reason, this is not possible, then other footwear suitable for indoor.
  • All costumes will be transported by us other than footwear. Most children will be wearing either pumps or their school shoes which they should bring with them but others may have been asked to bring alternatives.
  • Please ensure all clothing and footwear is clearly labelled as the dressing rooms can become a bit chaotic.
  • Please bring plenty of water, a packed lunch and usual snacks (not lots of sweets, chocolates and crisps).
  • Children must be picked back up on Tuesday from Bablake and dropped back between 6.00-6.15pm. Children are not permitted to stay between 3.30pm and 6.00pm.

If you have any questions, please email me at jo.hartwell@allsoulsschool.co.uk

Thank you.

Thank you and goodbye to Senorita Martin

Today we sadly waved adios to Senorita Martin who is leaving us this term. We did so in true spanish style with a fun-filled fiesta in the classroom followed by an assembly where Year 5 performed a song in Spanish!

Thank you Senorita Martin for such a great year, for teaching us the Spanish language and opening our eyes to the Spanish culture. We have thoroughly enjoyed our lessons and will miss you very much! We wish you all the best for the future!

 

The Wonders of Waterworld!

Since the start of the summer term, some children from Y4, 5 and 6 have been learning to become more confident swimmers.

Today, 14 excited swimmers from Y5 and 6 proved to everyone (and to themselves) just how much they have improved! Fear was left at the door as our children tackled the rapids, braved the slides and the infamous ‘Spacebowl’…all whilst trying to avoid the shifty shark that was Mr Cooke, chasing, dunking, splashing and really putting our swimmers to the test!!

Congratulations to Mrs Durrans! She wasn’t late, didn’t drown and somehow managed to stick with the group.

We are so proud of their progress and determination throughout the term- let’s hope they’ll keep swimming throughout the summer! A big thank you to Paula for being such a fabulous, friendly instructor and helping our swimmers to see their potential in the water.

What a great day.

Transition Day Y5-6

This afternoon, I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Year 5 and introducing myself to them as their new Year 6 class teacher. They were an absolute delight! I am extremely looking forward to helping them to have a fabulous final year at All Souls! Mrs Elkins is also feeling very lucky to be with Year 6 next year, especially as she worked with them from the beginning of their journey back in Nursery through to Reception and Year 1.

They had to order themselves – without talking – into a few different ways. Surprisingly, the majority of them did well although a few did struggle with not letting sound escape from their mouths!

They then had to think about what they were looking forward to…

IMG_7884

… and any questions we wanted to ask!

IMG_7888

They then had to decide what made a perfect pupil, cool classmate and terrific teacher to create some agreed class rules for next year to make sure they have a fabulous one!IMG_7910    IMG_7916 IMG_7917

Finally, Year 5 were set with the task of selling themselves to me. They really had to think about why they wanted to be in Year 6, why they deserved it and what they had to offer…IMG_7919

After listening to them present their case, it was difficult not to say yes, it was clear that they were all ready for Year 6 and I am really looking forward to welcoming them in properly.

Summer Holiday Tasks – I have provided them all with a few little tasks to keep them occupied over the summer holidays that I look forward to receiving! In the meantime, have a very happy and memorable end to Year 5 and safe summer holidays recharging those batteries!

They’re Ukulele Mad!

What a fabulous way to start the week!
Y5 wowed everyone with their talent and musical ability during their ukulele assembly on Monday!

With the help of Mr Evans, they have had a wonderful year learning a new skill and simply can’t wait to carry it on next year.

With quite the excellent repertoire of songs, Y5 even roped in some of their parents into learning a chord or two!

Congratulations Y5 and keep up the good work!

Can you remember all the information from our ukulele quiz? Why not test yourself.
