On this day, we will also be having a whole school quiz and assembly to announce the competition winners and find out what each class has been up to!

 

 

There will also be a Mad Science assembly on Tuesday 5th March for Y1 – Y6 to launch an exciting opportunity to join a Mad Science after school club. Letters outlining the details and cost of this will be sent out following the assembly.

Liberty Bear 🐻

We arrived back this morning to find Liberty Bear with a letter! She told us all about her adventures of Half Term, she even bought us some Irish treats to try! What an exciting start to the week.

Painting like Pollock

Year One took their artistic skills outside the classroom and worked together to make a masterpiece in the style of Jackson Pollock. The rain then started but instead of heading back inside the children noticed the patterns the rain started to make and watched as the paint began to run. A lovely way to end our afternoon!

The first snowfall of Winter!

Year One were beyond excited as they arrived at school today to see the playground was covered in untouched snow! We decided to brace the cold and wrap up to enjoy the frosty start to our Wednesday. We made snow angels and felt the snow melt on our hands, the children very quickly realised that unfortunately we didn’t; have enough to make a snowman together so instead took to seeing who could make the biggest wings.

The children wrote their names in the snow but the excitement hit a whole other level when they discovered the footprints… We were so excited to find out who the footprints belonged to. The children narrowed it down to 3 culprits. A fox, a cat or a dog? The dog was ruled out because the paw prints were too small. So that left 2 remaining and we couldn’t decide. Until a little visitor decided to pay us a visit and we knew straight away the footprints belonged to them. Ask your children who the footprints belonged to?

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!
