Ackers Adventure Year 6 End of Year Trip

As a reward for contributing to what has been a fantastic year, we have organised a trip for Year 6 to Ackers Adventure in Birmingham on Thursday 13th July 2017.

You will receive an email containing all the details and how to pay through Sims Agora on Tuesday.

This is another exciting opportunity to make a few more memories as a class before the end of their time at All Souls. To try and suit all children, and bearing in mind the adventures we watched the children embrace in Dol-y-Moch, we have chosen three, one-and-a-half hour long, sessions for the children to take part in. Children will learn how to ski; work together to make their way across high ropes, tunnels and other exciting obstacles; and harness up to take the Leap of Faith.The cost of this trip is £30; however, we understand that school trips and events are costly at this time of year. Therefore, as it is their last trip here at All Souls’, we are contributing £10 to the cost of each child making the total amount payable £20 per child. To further keep costs low, we have decided to make two trips in the minibus which the school will cover the cost of. This does mean that half of the children will need to arrive at school for 8am and be picked up at 3.45pm; the other half will come to school at the usual time of 8.30am and be picked up at 5pm. We will try our best to fit this around your needs; however, as we need an equal amount of children on each minibus journey, this may be difficult. Therefore, an option slip will come home next week. I kindly request you tick as many options as you are able to accommodate on the reply.

Children will need to wear their school tracksuit and appropriate footwear. It is essential they also bring a pair of gloves as these are an absolute necessary to be able to take part in two of the challenges. Children are also asked to bring their packed lunch in a carrier bag.

Finally, I apologise for the late notice; as I am sure you are aware, it has been a busy few weeks in Year 6.

Thanks for your continued support.

Mrs Hartwell.

SRE (Year 6)

Year 6 children will be coming home today with the letter below outlining some important dates for parents and details associated with our SRE programme. Please return the reply slip to confirm whether you will be attending either of the sessions for parents.

Kind regards

SRE Letter

Y5 learn new lingo!

Year 5 had a blast today at Bablake at the Modern Foreign Languages day. We took part in taster sessions in Spanish, Italian,German and French. We did lots of creative activities and even made our own replicas of the Eiffel Tower. Ask us to teach you how to say hello in a different language!

Well done to all the children: you were a credit to our school!

Here are some pictures of us in action.

Transition Afternoon No.2 for Year 3 (soon to be Year 4!)

We had another fabulous afternoon getting to know eachother!

They really enjoyed showing off their Maths skills as they created a poster with some sums to give answers to clues about who they were for us to figure out.

The children completed some fantastic artwork too that we can’t wait to get up in our new classroom.

We are all really excited for our third and final transition meeting on Wednesday5th July where we will be playing a variety of team-building games and writing our own autobiographies. The children should have come home with a question sheet so that they can find out some information to help them with this. They can bring it in with them on the day or hand it in before if they so wish.

Year 5 Visits This Week…

Thursday 22nd June: Modern Foreign Languages Day (at Bablake)

On Thursday, the class will be visiting Bablake for a languages taster day. The children will be travelling by mini-bus there and back and will be back at school before the end of the day. The children all need a packed lunch and a drink (preferably in a named carrier bag so that it can be disposed of).

If your child is taking part in the athletics competition on this day, they will not be coming with us to Bablake and will instead stay at school before attending the athletics in the afternoon.

Friday 23rd June: Humanities Day (at Bishop Ullathorne)

The theme for the day is “Gifts and Fruits of the Spirit” and this is a fantastic opportunity for the children to take part in a range of activities that will build on what we have learnt in our RE lessons and begin to prepare them for their Confirmation.  Coaches from Bishop Ullathorne will pick up the children from All Souls’at 9 o’clock and will bring us back ready in time for the end of the school day. Lunch will be provided by Bishop Ullathorne.


Children should come to school in full school uniform on both days as normal.
