Dear Everyone,

Welcome back after the half term break. We have a busy couple of months ahead working up towards Christmas. The children loved our activities about Diwali at the end of last term – thank you to Mrs Atwal for bringing in Diwali treats and making it so special for the children.This week we have been thinking about bonfire night and we will continue this theme next week. Thank you for all of the tubes and boxes etc. you have sent in so we shall start making our rockets on Monday. Next week we will also be making poppy badges for Remembrance Day. This week we have also sent a rhyme pack home with two children – we will take turns each week. It would be great if you could sit and share the rhyming books with your children and return them back to Nursery the following Friday. The children have loved joining in with rhyming books by Julia Donaldson every day this week. Mrs Cooke was so impressed with Nursery in P.E on Thursday she has given them a special mention in the whole school letter – so well done children! Have a safe and enjoyable bonfire night.

Autumn

Year 4 are learning about the weather in Geography and the changes that take place within and across the four seasons. After creating a seasonal poem in groups, they then had the chance to go and create an autumnal picture out of our natural surroundings. The wind was strong today though so they had to be quick with their creations and choose the most sheltered area to display them. See if you can work out what they are:

Thank you

A big thank you for supporting CAFOD Brighten Up this Harvest.

The children and staff looked great and it was a fun way to raise awareness of the needs of others. I will let you know next week how much money we raised.

Once again thank you for your continued support.

Colourful Year 1

Well done to Molly and Eujhan  our two Superstars for achieving 100% in our weekly spelling quiz. Hopefully more names here next week.

We have continued our work on the colour wheel. The children had great fun mixing primary colours to create new colours. We linked this work to RE looking at the wonderful world of colour God created.

Please take a moment on Tuesday evening to look at our RE & Art World of Colour display in the hall.

On Monday children from Year joined us to share their wonderful descriptive writing. The story of Creation.

Finally a gentle reminder. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school and all items of foot ware and clothing are labelled.

Thank you for your continued support.

All Souls’ Weather Watch

This week we started our very own Year 4 weather watch using our exciting new weather station outside Year 4 classroom.

It started off as a bit of a dull report earlier in the week as the weather was a bit boring (no wind nor rain!) but we were all ecstatic this morning because it rained last night! Liam and Assumpta were the first up to independently record the weather and reported to the rest of the class that it was fine but wet, sunny with some clouds, with a moderate southwesterly wind and 6mm of rainfall!

Stay tuned as we bring you the most accurate weather information you’ll find on the internet … although maybe a little sporadic and slightly later than you’d probably need to know!

 

 

Craft Club

We had another busy Craft Club session on Tuesday.  Mr Cooke joined us as we made flowers using floristry ribbon.

I think you will agree that the children went home with some lovely creations.

Craft Club

Craft Club got off to a “flying” start today.  The children made felt birds using their sewing skills.

Look out for more of our makes over the coming weeks.

I am pleased to report that one of the boys enjoyed Craft Club so much last year that he learnt how to knit during the summer.  Well done.

Year 1 Week 2, Creation, colour and digits.

Well done to all the children in Year 1. They have worked very hard and are continuing to develop their listening skills and independence.

Congratulations to Natasza and Thomas our two very deserving Superstars this week.

 

We have been mastering new Year 1 skills.

Identifying digits in numbers. Setting out work in our maths books.

Writing out the date and lesson objectives in our work books.

Becoming familiar with the school marking symbols. Ask your child to explain, would they like their work to be graded A or E?

In RE the children have been learning about Creation and have painted some wonderful pictures ready for display in the school hall.

In art  we have begun our topic Colour and Paint, creating colour wheels with primary colours.

Year 1 are a happy bunch of 30 individual personalities and we are having fun getting to know each other.

Your child has been given a homework book and termly newsletter. Please encourage your child to complete their homework and return to school on Wednesday.

Finally a huge welcome back to Sienna, who has had an excellent first week back at All Souls.

Thank you for your continued support.

Please see me at the end of the school day id you have any worries, questions and concerns.
