Year One launch into 2019

What a busy week to start 2019. We launched our new unit focus ‘Terrific Transport’ and started new maths and English units too!

Here are a few pictures of our wonderful trip, what a great way to start the year. Ask your children all about it.

Well done to the children who were an absolute delight and credit to their parents and the school.

Have a great weekend

The most wonderful time of the year

A fantastic week to end a long, busy and very successful term. The end of term Mass and carol service followed by our trip to Ash End Farm was a wonderful way to start our week.

We then completed our week with a beautiful prayer service led by the chaplaincy team to remind the children what Christmas is really about.

As a treat for the children we settled in our PJs and watched The Polar Express (chosen by them). We had popcorn, sweets and hot chocolate.

The children were understandably excited so we finished our day by ready our special book that had been delivered by a very special guest, “The night before Christmas”

I just want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your generous gifts and cards, they are very much appreciated. Also to wish you and your families a blessed Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

See you in 2019

A wonderfully wintery trip!

Well what a fantastic trip we had today to Ash End Children’s Farm. The rain held off and we were even blessed with a little sunshine for the afternoon. We fed animals, met brand new baby piglets and chicks that were only 3 days old, balanced ‘junior’ chickens on our heads, met Santa’s reindeer, took part in a Nativity with a real life donkey (!), went to Santa’s house and received a lovely gift, ate lunch next to an open fire, measured ourselves next to HUGE Shire horses, saw a young bird of prey on his first practise flight and bounced on a gigantic air pillow! It was a busy, fun-filled day and we all had a great time! Enjoy looking at our pictures below.

The children were absolutely brilliant, well behaved and tried everything even when they were a little nervous. A member of the public commented on how lovely our children were and we agreed proudly, they were a credit to All Souls and their parents.

A lovely way to end a very busy term! Thank you!

Santa’s got his eyes on us!

Miss Frearson and Miss Corkerry have been sent Santa Cams from the North Pole so that Santa can keep his eye on all the Key Stage One children during the final days of school! We are trying to be on our best behavior to make sure we stay on his nice list!

 

A very busy week in Year One

Wow! What a busy, tiring and hard week it has been for our Year One children. With assessments, new learning and a Nativity play to get ready we have certainly been kept on our toes! After all of this hard work we finished the week with a beautifully reflective prayer service. We were very excited to light the candle on our handmade Advent wreath and we wrote our hopes for Advent and Christmas on special hope stars. th

The children have worked incredibly hard this week and should be congratulated on their determination and resilience. Well done Year One! A whole class of superstars! th

Nativity Reminder!

The nativity is fast approaching!

Remember to come along to see our performance next week:

Tuesday 11th December @ 1:15pm

Wednesday 12th December @ 9:15am

Please note: KS1 will be walking to the Hearsall Baptist Church on Wednesday after the performance at school to perform to the Luncheon Club there. They will be back in time for lunch as normal.

Y1 and Y2 Narrator Costumes

If your child is a narrator in the KS1 nativity, please could you provide something for them to wear underneath their tabard. This could be a pair of black leggings, black skins or black tights for the bottom and a black t-shirt or strappy top for the top. If you don’t have these exact specifics, please do not feel obliged to buy anything – just send the closest thing you have (any dark colours will be fine)! They are needed to keep your child covered-up and warm. Please bring it in at the earliest opportunity (and by Monday at the latest) in a labelled carrier bag.

 

Many thanks.

There will be lots of different stalls, cake and tea, a performance from our wonderful choir, a secret room for present purchasing, a very special visit from a very special man and lots more for you to enjoy!

As always, we thank you for your kind donations and encourage them to keep on coming. We are in particular need of chocolate (bars/tubs/etc) and any other little bits and bobs for the tombola or raffle prizes.

We would also like to remind you that this Friday is ‘Bring a bottle’ into school day where we ask the children to bring in a bottle in exhange for wearing non-uniform for the day! These donations do really make a difference and make our bazaar the success it usually is.

Many thanks 🙂
