Well done Year 6!

Year 5 put up a good fight towards the end but Year 6 had been consistent throughout and as a result won this week’s TimesTables RockStars Tournament with 29,082 points v 19,479 points.

Times Tables Rockstars — William Harding School

Well done to everyone who took part especially Liam G in Y6 and Niko in Y5 who were the top scorers for each class!

Let’s see if Year 5 can secure the win next week!

Darci’s Week

It looks like Darci has had a very busy week at home. She’s created her own rainbow for the window, worked on reading comprehension, maths skills and her fitness log.

She has researched her local area and tried to trace her house back through time for History. I love the details put into the planet Darci has designed to go along with her piece of creative writing.

In addition to all this, somewhere in the week she’s found time to write up a recipe and bake a batch of delicious looking cookies. Well done Darci and thanks for sending this all in!

Day 4 from Year 5

Thank you to all those sending in examples of children’s work, I can’t wait to see what else comes in over the next few days!

 

Taya has been working as a nature photographer and getting in close to see natural patterns.

Alannah has created her own detailed patterns, worked on her spellings and represented fractions around the home in a range of different ways.

Cerys has worked on finding different ways to represent percentages for her Maths skills.

More work coming in

Daniel has been hard at work with spelling, reading and maths work.

 

Cerys and Niamh have been competing with 1 on 1 netball challenges.

Take a listen to Cerys’ piece of music. I enjoyed seeing how different shapes create a new song – I wonder what your name would sound like?

Great work coming in from Year 5!

Have a listen to Daniel’s latest track and see if it reminds you of any other songs.

Cerys has been looking into the history of her local area and created her own aged map.

 

Well done to those of you taking part in Times Tables Rockstars, especially Niko who has been putting the most time in!

However, at the moment Year 6 are still well in the lead! We still have some people to log in and represent Year 5 in our class vs class challenge.

If you cannot get access to your account, email Mr Rolison to get your username and password.

 

Thank you to all parents for sending in pictures and pieces of work. Please keep it up through the week, it has been excellent to see what the children have been getting up to.

COVID-19 UPDATE : A message from Mrs Quinn

A MESSAGE FROM MRS QUINN, HEADTEACHER:

Please can I assure you that there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at All Souls’. We have a number of children currently absent due to sore throats, raised temperatures and coughs.

We are grateful to those families who have informed us of these symptoms and taken the decision to isolate their child. As per the current Government guidance, whole families are now being told to self isolate should any one member display symptoms.

Up to date advice can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response

We will not be providing work packs for those children absent at this time (unless in exceptional circumstances). Please encourage your child to:

  • Read – their reading book or other books at home
  • Write – keep a diary, write a review on a book they’ve read, write a story
  • Practice their spellings and times tables
  • Stay active – gentle indoor exercises
  • Say their prayers – they could try writing their own
  • Art – get creative with the resources you have at home

I take the health of our staff, children and their families very seriously and thank you for your cooperation and support during these difficult times.

Day 5 of British Science Week 2020

Our fifth and final day of British Science Week 2020 was just as brilliant as the rest of the week!

To end our Science-filled week, children were invited to come into school dressed as Mad Scientists – everyone looked fantastic!

We also had a slithering visitor as Synthia the snake came to say hello!

 

Thank you to Mrs Rolison and Suntrap Centre for sharing their amazing animals with us this week – a highlight for most children (and staff!) for sure!

 

We ended the day with a beautiful prayer service led by Miss Corkerry, reminding us of how much Science has made our lives better. We learned more about the life of Marie Curie, her contribution to Science and the the works of her charity before being encouraged to put our own God-given talents to good use.

A huge thank you to all children, parents and staff who helped to make British Science Week 2020 our best one yet! As always, your support is greatly appreciated.

Day 4 of British Science Week 2020

This afternoon was our last Science Carousel afternoon of British Science Week 2020 and after seeing the faces of all the children in our school across the week, I think it’s fair to say…

Year 1 and 2 were busy dunking biscuits and meeting some new less-than-furry friends:

Year 5 and 6 created snow fluff using a mixture of shaving cream and corn starch before seeing her could fly their rocket ‘mice’ the furthest:

 

Reception have been making volcanoes using coca cola:

 

To end our week of all things Science, children are invited to come into school dressed as Scientists! In return, we would really appreciate £1 donations towards our Science fund!

Thank you so much to all the teachers who have worked so hard to prepare these investigations for all involved and really bring British Science Week 2020 to life!
