Anti-Bullying Week – Odd Socks Day – Tuesday 12th November
This week is Anti-Bullying Week. As a whole school we will be exploring this from many different perspectives. One of these is that we must respect the fact we are all different. To celebrate this, we are joining in Odd Socks Day and inviting children to come to school in odd socks on Tuesday 12th November.
We encourage children to get creative and remember the brighter, the better! They can
be worn over trousers, one long, one short, however you please!
The important thing is that the children think about the fact it is ok to be different and that we should treat each other kindly.
We joined together today to commemorate Remembrance Day.
To mark the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918, we shared in prayer before holding a two minute silence to remember those who have died in wars.
Thank you to the children in Year Six who led us in prayer beautifully and reverently.
Due to our busy week next week, we will be changing reading books on Thursday only.
Thank you for your understanding!
Can I also remind you that we need consent and payment for the zoo trip before Tuesday next week. On Monday the children will wear normal uniform, but on Wednesday they should wear warm clothing, including coats, hats, scarfs and gloves, along with the school tracksuit and wellies.
Have a lovely weekend

On Monday 11th November, Year 2 will be walking to the Albany theatre to see The Gruffalo and Zog.
- Children to arrive in school promptly as we will be departing All Souls’ at 9.00am to walk to the Albany.
- Wear full school uniform (including jumpers) and have a warm waterproof coat on – it will most probably be raining at some point!
- Please wear appropriate footwear (we do not want soggy feet!)
- 1 x snack (individual sized) and 1 x drink (no cans please)
- Children will be back in school for lunch time
This trip is free of charge.
To celebrate our school’s special feast day, The Feast of All Souls, we gathered together in the hall to share in a whole school prayer service.
Year 6 led us into prayer beautifully, asking us to remember the souls of our loved ones who have passed. Although it is sad when people die, we remember that they are now at peace with God.
Each class took it in turns to offer forth an envelope filled with their prayers for their loved ones as each class teacher lit a candle to symbolise our prayer intentions.
It was such a lovely way to share in this special feast day!
The homework studies assignment is being sent out this afternoon:
Year 2 ~ Home Study Task 2 ~ A Country in Africa
Choose a country in Africa to research and study.
Focus on one aspect or several aspects e.g. food, transport, homes, education. Represent it in your chosen way.
Due: Wednesday 11th December
. Please remember to send your child with a pair of wellies on Monday!
Have a nice weekend.
On Monday 4th November, the children will be walking to Lake View Park to test out the two different types of boat that we have made this year. We will be going down for an hour in the morning. Please ensure your child is wearing appropriate footwear including wellies if possible because of the time of year! They also need a warm coat.
Please let me know if you would like to join us! It will be around 10-11am.
Have a fantastic half term!
I will be sending the children home with additional maths sheets over the holidays. Please don’t worry if you find it’s too much! It was just to give the children some extra practice at home to consolidate the learning we have done in addition this term.
Have a nice break

The whole school joined together in the hall this afternoon to share in ‘A Time of Prayer’ live streamed with Archbishop Bernard Longley.
We prayed the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary using a Mission Rosary, and also marked the Feast Day of Blessed John Henry Newman.
Please could you send your child in with an empty plastic bottle over the next fews days? We will be making boats on Tuesday next week.
Thank you in advance!
