It is more important that you spend quality time with your children and that it is a happy and stress free time for you all. Thank you for your support.
Year 6 followed our Lenten footprints to show their prayer friends in Reception each station of the cross.
A MESSAGE FROM MRS QUINN, HEADTEACHER:
Please can I assure you that there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at All Souls’. We have a number of children currently absent due to sore throats, raised temperatures and coughs.
We are grateful to those families who have informed us of these symptoms and taken the decision to isolate their child. As per the current Government guidance, whole families are now being told to self isolate should any one member display symptoms.
Up to date advice can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response
We will not be providing work packs for those children absent at this time (unless in exceptional circumstances). Please encourage your child to:
- Read – their reading book or other books at home
- Write – keep a diary, write a review on a book they’ve read, write a story
- Practice their spellings and times tables
- Stay active – gentle indoor exercises
- Say their prayers – they could try writing their own
- Art – get creative with the resources you have at home
I take the health of our staff, children and their families very seriously and thank you for your cooperation and support during these difficult times.
On Friday afternoon we held an egg challenge. We worked in groups to design a case to protect an egg if it was dropped from a window upstairs. One of the groups egg didn’t get out of the classroom! Of the 5 other groups 2 managed to build a case that protected their egg and they survived the drop. Well done to them. We all had fun and it was a great way to end Science Week.
Our fifth and final day of British Science Week 2020 was just as brilliant as the rest of the week!
To end our Science-filled week, children were invited to come into school dressed as Mad Scientists – everyone looked fantastic!
We also had a slithering visitor as Synthia the snake came to say hello!
Thank you to Mrs Rolison and Suntrap Centre for sharing their amazing animals with us this week – a highlight for most children (and staff!) for sure!
We ended the day with a beautiful prayer service led by Miss Corkerry, reminding us of how much Science has made our lives better. We learned more about the life of Marie Curie, her contribution to Science and the the works of her charity before being encouraged to put our own God-given talents to good use.
A huge thank you to all children, parents and staff who helped to make British Science Week 2020 our best one yet! As always, your support is greatly appreciated.
This afternoon was our last Science Carousel afternoon of British Science Week 2020 and after seeing the faces of all the children in our school across the week, I think it’s fair to say…
Year 1 and 2 were busy dunking biscuits and meeting some new less-than-furry friends:
Year 5 and 6 created snow fluff using a mixture of shaving cream and corn starch before seeing her could fly their rocket ‘mice’ the furthest:
Reception have been making volcanoes using coca cola:
To end our week of all things Science, children are invited to come into school dressed as Scientists! In return, we would really appreciate £1 donations towards our Science fund!
Thank you so much to all the teachers who have worked so hard to prepare these investigations for all involved and really bring British Science Week 2020 to life!
Year 6 and Reception shared in a beautiful Lenten prayer service based on the Lenten value of TRUST this afternoon.
We reflected on a piece of scripture from the Gospel according to Matthew which highlighted to us how trust is an important ingredient in our relationships with others and, most importantly, with God.
Well done to Isla, Bridget and Josie who planned, prepared a delivered this very special time with their prayer friends. They have given us the mission going forth to spend time together in the prayer garden to talk about who we trust and why trust is so important.
