How do we sort this?

Today Year 5 enjoyed discussing and sorting a range of materials.

Many different sorting systems were employed; from heaviest to lightest, to grouping by production method. Each person made a good argument for why their sorting system was best before trying out sorting by hardness, transparency and solubility. By learning more about these properties, we can decide suitable materials to use for everyday problems.

 

School Clubs Spring 2020

SCHOOL CLUBS – SPRING TERM 2020

***Online booking via SIMS Pay opens Thursday 9th January 2020***

We’re pleased to advise that we’ve teamed up with EPIC Academy who will provide us with highly trained and skilled sports coaches to deliver lots of before and after school clubs for us!

Please note that there has been a price increase across the majority of clubs due to us having to buy in expert coaches, resources and materials. The cost is still excellent value for money; each club is no more than £2.50 per week per child.

We feel it is very important for children to take part in at least one club; please take a look at what is available and book their place online via SIMS Pay. The clubs will be available to book from Thursday 9th January 2020.

Please note we can only accept online payments and once the clubs are full, they will no longer be visible on SIMS Pay. Should you be able to book and pay for a place on SIMS Pay, please consider your child’s place confirmed. If the club you are trying to book is not showing when you log in, it will be because it is fully booked.

Please bear in mind that by signing up to a club your child is making a commitment and they should only sign up if they are prepared to meet the expectation that they attend regularly. Children who have demonstrated commitment (very regular attendance) to a club already, will have priority to join clubs that are over-subscribed.

Once again this term, our staff have been very generous in offering to run extra-curricular activities, which is above and beyond their contractual duties.  We’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you and express our appreciation of them for this.  We believe that our children are very lucky to have these clubs available to them, and consider them to be excellent value for money.

If you have any issues with SIMS Pay, please contact Mrs Rae, the School Business Manager  – linsey.rae@allsoulsschool.co.uk

 Best wishes

Farewell Mr Youson and Mrs Senyk!

Today has been a very, very sad – there have been lots of tears as we finally reached the day on which we had to say goodbye to Mr Youson and Mrs Senyk!

We held two very emotional assemblies in which the children sang some beautiful bespoke songs and they were presented with their farewell gifts. We wish them both the very best of luck on their new adventures and hope that one day they will pop back in and say hello! We will miss them both so much. We’re blessed to have had such a good HLTA in Mrs Senyk and Mr Youson has been a true role model and inspiration for so many of our children.

Go well, go safely – may God bless you both.

 

 

Ice Skating

Year 5 and Year 6 had a fabulous time on the ice this afternoon. We were so incredibly impressed with their sheer determination and resilience.

A fun time was had by all – especially the teachers!

We even ‘bumped into’ Ben Hanlin who was practising with Carlotta for this year’s Dancing on Ice! We got some cool tips off him and he earned himself 65 extra supporters ready to cheer them on in the live shows!

Ice Skating!

Year 5 and 6 are off to Planet Ice at Coventry’s Skydome on Monday 16th December 2019.

We will be leaving school at 12.15pm (children will have their lunchtime earlier), ready to skate for 1pm. Our session ends at 3.30pm and therefore we are expected back at school at a later time of 4.15pm.

If you wish for your child to be picked up from the ice rink, then please make sure a member of the Year 5 or 6 team is aware of this.

Children must come into school in their school uniform with a warm change of clothes to change into before we leave. They should bring with them a warm coat, gloves and thick socks (or multiple pairs of thin socks).

The cost for this trip is £5.50. Please pay this through SIMS Pay.

We are very excited for this annual tradition and hope you are too!

Christmas Jumper Days

Children may come to school wearing Christmas attire (jumpers, dresses, Santa hats, headbands etc) on the following days:

Friday 13th December – voluntary donations gratefully received for Cash 4 Kids (Free Radio Coventry & Warwickshire), a wonderful charity who ensure disadvantaged children have something to open on Christmas day.

Wednesday 18th December – no donation required; it’s our Christmas lunch!

 

Thank you!

Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this year’s Christmaz Bazaar another huge success!

We hope you all had as much fun as we did and managed to win a little (or big!) something too!

We could not do it without you!
