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.
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 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 can all children (mainly Y1 to Y6) bring in an old long sleeve over-sized T-Shirt or button through shirt to wear during art classes. Please ensure they are named. Any spares you may have would be appreciated!
We are collecting the ALDI stickers – we need 300 to fill our chart which we
can exchange for sports kit. We will then be entered in to the draw to win
one of six £20,000 prizes. If you shop at ALDI, please request some stickers
at the checkout and send these in to school. Thank you 🙂
Please send any collected stickers to Mr You who will add them to our chart! We will keep you updated with our progress!
A huge thank you to all my wonderful friends and colleagues at All Souls School and All Sorts, parents, grandparents and children. I have been overwhelmed by the many gifts, flowers, cards and messages I have received as I leave All Souls School.
All Souls will always hold a special place in my memory and heart. The biggest thanks for all the great times and experiences goes to the children I have worked with over the years.
I will continue to remember you all in my prayers.
WOW! What a fabulous effort the children have made once again! It was so lovely to see such an array of projects showing off the topics each class has been studying this term – and their talents. We really are lucky to have such creative children!
Thank you to everyone who facilitated their child in creating their masterpieces and to all who came to view the children’s projects this afternoon. Your support, as always, is greatly appreciated.
