Dear Parents

Due to the trip to the Belgrade unfortunately being cancelled, I thought it would be nice to have a film afternoon on Friday watching Paddington, which is this term’s focus in English. The film is rated PG therefore I need permission from you that your child can watch it. Please could you let me know via email, in person or a note in your child’s reading diary.

My email address is lucy.clarke@allsoulsschool.co.uk

Thank you for your ongoing support

Miss Clarke

COVID-19 UPDATE : A message from Mrs Quinn

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.

Day 5 of British Science Week 2020

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.

Day 4 of British Science Week 2020

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!

This afternoon, Year 1 and 2 created snow fluff using a mixture of shaving cream and corn starch before seeing her could fly their rocket ‘mice’ the furthest:

Year 3 and 4 discovered which nappy is the most absorbant and therefore the best to buy and investigated whether the weight of an egg affects the speed it travels:

British Science Week 2020 Day2/5

This week, throughout the afternoons, each class will be visiting different teachers and their classrooms to explore their chosen ‘Big Question’.

This afternoon, Year 1 and 2 joined in with the fun as they found out which nappy is the most absorbant and therefore the best to buy and investigated whether the weight of an egg affects the speed it travels:

Year 3 and 4 created snow fluff using a mixture of shaving cream and corn starch before seeing her could fly their rocket ‘mice’ the furthest:

Reception checked back on their flowers from yesterday and to their surprise, two out of the three flowers they had added food colouring to were starting to change colours! They also set up a new investigation into which drink is the most damaging for our teeth by adding chalk (acting as our teeth!) to different popular drinks…

Nursery were experimenting what happens when they mix food colouring, milk and washing up liquid – ask them what they found out!

We are super excited for the rest of the week!
