This morning, we started to get excited as a school about the impending arrival of 200 saplings from the Woodland Trust, which are due to be delivered during November.
We listened to the story of the ‘Man who planted trees’ and talked about the importance of trees and how we, as individuals, can make a difference to the world.
During November, we will be creating our own school woodland area on a section of the school field and the children, with the help of adults from the community, will have the opportunity to plant trees which we hope will be around for generations to come.
We are also excited to be working towards the ‘Green Tree Schools Award’ this year and have our sights set firmly on achieving platinum status!
Year 3 had a great time during the launch of our curriculum theme ‘Jurassic Park’.

Keep checking our class page for future activities and events.
Thank you to all of the children who volunteered to take a more active role in our first whole school mass of the year by offering readings, bidding prayers, presenting the offertory and altar serving.
It was a lovely way of celebrating the beginning of our new academic year together as one.
Thank you to all of our familes who were able to attend this morning. We hope you enjoyed the beautiful singing as much as we did.
today your child will have brought home a letter asking you to update your child’s information. Please ensure you complete the attach form and return to school as soon as possible.
New Reading Records were also sent home, please sign and date when you have listened to your child read.
If you have any concerns or questions about reading please contact me in person.

Well done Year 3 a great start to the new year.
A huge welcome to Peach, Harrison and Oliver who joined our class today.
See you in the morning
WOW! What a lovely trip. Year Three visited Dudley Zoo today and what a wonderful end of year trip to finish a brilliant year. The children were incredibly well behaved as they always are and represented the school wonderfully. Despite the crowds of people and other schools we managed to pack a huge amount of walking, exploring and map-reading into a relatively short period of time.
Some of us came face to face with a tiger; saw the giraffes eating from the tree tops, monkeys monkeying around and some close encounters with lots of animals. The children had the chance to feed the Lorikeets, stroke the chinchillas, feed the meerkats and wave hello as well as ROAR at lots of different animals along the way. We even had the chance to watch a bird of prey display whilst eating our lunch!
The freedom of such a huge space was brilliant for the children who let off some steam by running around the various playgrounds and
adventure areas. Some very tired but content children on the journey back home, they’ll sleep well tonight.
Our last trip of Year Three – it’s been a blast!
Well done to all of the children who took part in today’s sports day. All of the activities were great fun and the children put in 100% despite the heat!
Special congratulations to Cana who won the Sports Day Cup!
Thank you all so much for coming to watch, support and cheer the children on, Thank you to the PTA for purchasing the much needed gazebos to provide us with a little shade. Thank you also to the staff who ran each station and of course, Mr Youson for organising such a fab event!
A reminder to all parents about the trip to Brandon Marsh tomorrow.
Please ensure your child arrives at school promptly tomorrow with a sunhat and suncream as well as their lunch for the day. The temperatures are set to hit 29 degrees tomorrow and we will be outside for most of the day; please make sure they have a water bottle and have had suncream applied before they arrive at school as well as bringing it with them.
Year Three have had a brilliant day celebrating their Holy Communions all together. The mass was beautiful with the whole school there as witness to the sacrament the children undertook. We had professional photos taken in school and these will be made available for you to buy over the next few weeks. We then had some chill time and are now currently watching a film chosen by the children and digging in to ice lollies and doughnuts.
May I take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all the staff at All Souls who have supported each and every event. To the incredible children who read at the masses, helped to fold and print booklets, sang beautifully and made lovely cards for the children. To Mr Cooke who played the piano at the masses. To Father Michael for celebrating the masses with us and his support throughout the sacramental journey. To Mrs McGowan for helping to arrange our Holy Communions and her support throughout out faith journey. To Miss Fox for helping us to prepare and being a great support throughout this year. To Mrs Quinn who provided so much support, came to all of our sacramental preparation sessions and celebrated our Communions with us – Thank you for always guiding us down the right path.
Finally, to you, their parents who supported them throughout it all and for your continued support of our work here at school.
There will be no TriGolf after school on Thursday 14th June. This is because Year 6 will be visiting London and I will be arriving back at school late.
Apologies for any inconvenience.
