A huge well done to the Netball team who had 2 successful wins this week.
The first game against Holy Family was a 15 – 3 win. The second was a cup match against Corpus Christi which was won 9 – 0. The children played brilliantly in both games and worked as a team to win both matches. They done their parents and All Souls proud.
The next cup match will be played after Half term against Saint Thomas Moore.
Year 5 showed off their painting skills this week by creating artwork of Hogwarts. They used their mixing and colour skills to make the sunset skyline and then they used stencils to create the silhouette of the Hogwarts Castle. Don’t they look fantastic?
In D and T, we made Rocky Roads! We followed a basic recipe but then added extra ingredients in accordance with our own designs. They were delicious!
Over the last few weeks Year 6 have been putting together their own routines in gymnastics lessons. The routines included balances, rolls, cartwheels and movement between these. Here are some of the examples (right click and then click ‘Open in new tab’ to watch):
In English today, Year 5 wrote an explanation about Tasseomancy – the art of reading tea leaves. We then pretended we were in Professor Trewlaney’s Divination class and had a go ourselves! I hope no-one saw The Grim! Eek!
Year 6 had an excellent trip to Coombe Country Park yesterday. They braved the cold temperatures and explored the water and woodland habitats around the park, learning about new species and what habitats they live in.
Craft Club have been hard at work learning how to weave using different textures. Here they are in action:
World Book Day takes place on Thursday, 1st March, 2018. At school today, your child has been given a £1 World Book Day token. If, for any reason, your child hasn’t received a token, please ask him/her to see Mrs Hands.
On March 1st, your child may attend school dressed as his/her favourite book character. For this privilege the children will be asked to donate one pound and the money raised will be used towards helping to purchase new books for our school library.
Following the success of last year’s turning a potato into a book character competition, there will be the opportunity for each child to enter another in-house competition. This year, children are being asked to paint, on an A4 or A3 piece of paper, a picture of their favourite character or scene from a book. All of the paintings, which need to have the child’s name and year group printed on the back, can be brought into school from Monday, 26th February. On World Book Day, the paintings will be taken into the school hall and one winner will be chosen from each class. Every class will be given time to look at the paintings in the hall and they will then be displayed in school. It is important that the paintings are produced by the children and that they reflect their age and ability. Some other activities will be on offer during the day. In their English lessons, children will be asked to write a story of their own which includes the character that they have chosen to dress up as. They will also be asked to design a book mark, and children in certain year groups will swap classes briefly in order to share a story with a child from a different class.
Thank you for your support.
Don’t forget that we have our Harry Potter themed day on Monday! The children are welcome to come to school dressed up!
On Tuesday, we will be making our Rocky Roads and so the children need to bring in their additional ingredients that they wish to use (for example, marshmallows, raisins etc.) No nuts please!
Additionally, any outstanding Alton Castle medical forms must be returned as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued support.
