#AllDifferentAllEqual

Year 5 are supporting Anti Bullying Week 2017!

We have looked at different scenarios of bullying and have refreshed our memories on what to do should we see or experience any incidents of bullying taking place.

At All Souls’, we know that everyone is #alldifferentallequal and we celebrate the differences that God has given us!

Information for Year 5 Parents

On Tuesday 21st November, Year 5 will be walking into the city centre to take part in a session led by the Coventry Building Society at their branch on High Street. The team at the building society aim to bring maths and its links to the world of work to life. The children will meet with various members of staff  and find out how they each use maths in their roles. They will also learn about the company and what building societies do, before they go on a tour of the branch.  The real fun begins though when they have the opportunity to take on the role of a cashier, getting behind the counter and processing mock transactions!

Following this, we are going to then walk to the cathedral to have a look around. We will particularly be focusing on the ruins, linking to our current  History topic of The Blitz.

 

To get some energy for the walk back, we will be going to McDonald’s for lunch! Your child can bring a maximum of £5 to school with them on this day to spend on their lunch. If your child prefers, they are more than welcome to bring a packed lunch instead that they can eat in McDonald’s. Please ensure that all money is in a purse/food bag and  is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

 

To get to the Coventry Building Society in time for the session to start, it is important that we leave school at 8:30 am. Please ensure that your child is in school for 8:20 am so I have time to register the children and leave promptly at 8:30 am.

 

Thank you for your continued support during this busy term!

Year 4 Still Life

Over the next couple of weeks, Year 4 will be looking at Still Life as part of their art topic.

To help them to create their final piece, please could you send in any inexpensive vases, bowls, bottles, ornamental pieces, fruit (preferably fake) and any table clothes you may have by Monday 20th November.

We will return all items once we have finished with them.

Thank you.

Please can I ask that children arrive promptly in school for 8.30am as we will be doing two minibus trips and therefore want to get organised quickly.

Please see letter for more details and ensure that any outstanding consent forms are returned as soon as possible.

Many thanks,

Mrs Hartwell

World Science Day

As part of World Science Day, Year 4 learnt about Marie Curie the scientist. This year’s theme is ‘Peace and Development’ and so we focused on how Marie Curie’s work led to the development of x-rays. Ask them what they found out!

Year 4 are now tasked with the competition to plan and advertise a fundraising event to raise money for the Marie Curie charity and teach the rest of All Souls’ about the amazing work this charity does and why.

The winning group will lead their fundraising day across the school in the near future so stay tuned…

Our weekly roundup!

WOW! What a week! We have been so busy we cannot believe another week has gone by.
We began the week working on our handwriting using playdough and playing pommpom games. We started a new topic in maths and learnt all about our new class book in English. Near the end of the week we have had so much fun! We learnt about rememberance day and created poppy art to show our respect to the fallen soldiers. We then took part in a fencing workshop where some of us had some very impressive moves!

To finish our week we took part in a science day focusing on the life and inventions of Nikola Tesla. We learnt about how he has changed our world as we know it and how we can still see his inventions in our daily life. We then took inspiration from the Tesla Coil and created electric storms with paint. We also had a fantastic visit from magnificent minibeasts which we got to hold and learn fun facts about.

Have a wonderful weekend year three!!
