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.

Remembrance Day

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.

The Feast of All Souls

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!

We prayed the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary using a Mission Rosary, and also marked the Feast Day of Blessed John Henry Newman.

Thank you and Goodbye

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.

Maps in Year 3

Thank You Mr White, for our wonderful detailed map of Brazil.

Here we are busily researching facts about Brazil using our atlas and internet skills.


Thank you for your continued support

Brilliant Brazil

Well done to the children of Year 3 a great range of homework projects.

It was lovely to see the projects as they arrived in school each day over the last week.

The children really enjoyed sharing their work and will have an opportunity to share their projects within the class next week.


Thank you to all the parents for your support.





Homework Projects

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.
