This week is British Science Week.

British Science Week is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths. The theme this year is JOURNEYS.

To celebrate, we have lots of exciting things coming up over the next two weeks, such as creating our own class question and going on a journey to find out the answer to it, creating posters to enter the annual BSA competition, taking part in a whole school quiz and of course a little bit of fancy dress to end it all on Friday 22nd March!

Please keep checking the blog to find out what we get up to!

World Book Day at All Souls!

 

We had a fantastic time for World Book Day yesterday; everybody, including staff, looked fabulous in their costumes! We had many activites across the school to celebrate our love of books and stories. Children swapped classes to hear a story being read by a different staff member, and took part in activites in those sessions, including making wands and flying kites!

KS2 children took part in the BBC Live Lesson where 3 well-known authors were on hand to answer questions and share extracts of their books. The lesson was interactive and many schools across the country took part so we were especially surprised when one of our photographs (which had been emailed in) was shown on screen along with our school shout out!

The rock creations were brilliant- thank you to everyone who participated. A winner was chosen from each year group and those children have received a £5.00 book voucher to spend at our Book Fair which is taking place from March 20th-27th. All children will receive a £1.00 WBD token to spend at the Fair. We will keep these until then to prevent them from being lost. Left-over vouchers will be distributed after the fair.

*Thank you to everyone for supporting this wonderful day! Share a story with your child to celebrate World Book Day*

 

Wingardium Leviosa!

Today’s Harry Potter session was so much fun! The children loved making their own wands and listening to a chapter from the first book in the series: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Mad Science!

Years 1 – 6 were joined by Atomic Abby from Mad Science this morning. She showed us some really cool Science experiments and told us all about the Mad Science afterschool club we are going to be hosting.

The afterschool club will take place on a Wednesday (3.15 – 4.15pm) for 12 weeks (13/03 – 19/06).  It is £90 for the full 12 sessions which works out at £7.50 per session (payment plans are available) including a take-home goody!

More details and information about how to book your place online will be on the letter sent home today. You will have to be quick though – there are only 25 spaces available!

World Book Day Letter

Tuesday 26th February

 

World Book Day!

Dear Parents,

 

Thursday 7th March is World Book Day; a day to help to foster a love of reading in our children. To celebrate this day at All Souls’, we have decided to have a dress up and activity day. Children are invited to dress up as a book character for the day (teaching staff will also be dressing up as a character from their favourite book!). During the course of the day, children will take part in a variety of activities both in their classrooms and across school.

Our annual competition this year is for children to produce a representation of their favourite story on a rock (think Isla’s Stones or Allesley Rocks). The rocks need to be brought into school on World Book Day and will be displayed in the hall for all children to view. A winner will be chosen from each class, and they will receive a £5.00 book token.

From Wednesday 20th-26th March we are holding a Scholastic Book Fair, in the school hall, where children and their families can browse and purchase books from £2.99. Children will also have been given a £1.00 Book Token to spend. Once we have made £300 worth of sales, school can access at least 25% of the amount to spend on books for our class reading areas. We hope that you will support this venture.

We look forward to seeing the children in their creations!

 

Thank you for your continuing support,

S.McDevitt & L.Frearson
