We hope you liked the Mother’s Day cards that your children in Year 5 made for you. The children really enjoyed making the cards and considering why we are thankful for our mums, step mums, aunties, grandmas and all the other people that look after us at home. It was so lovely to hear the reasons why you are all so loved. I hope you had a happy and relaxing day on Sunday.
Remember that our coffee morning is taking place on Friday 16th March, from 9:15am-11:15am. All parents and friends of the school are welcome! Entrance to the event will cost £3 per person, which includes unlimited tea and coffee and a selection of cakes on each table. Additional cakes will also be on offer to purchase, either to eat at the event or to take home for later. Raffle tickets and Irish coffees will also be available for sale on the morning.
On the day itself, all children can come to school dressed up in the Irish colours. In return, we ask that the children bring in cakes that can be sold at the coffee morning. Due to the fact that getting hundreds of cakes ready on the morning is extremely hectic, this year, children are requested to bring these in on the days leading up to the event if at all possible please.
This event relies whole-heartedly on the generosity of our school community and is vital in raising funds for the school, so your support for this is very much appreciated- thank you in advance!
Thank you to all those parents, friends and local businesses who have kindly donated to our Saint Patrick’s Day raffle so far.
It is still not too late to donate prizes! Please pass on any prizes you may have to Miss Frearson or hand them in to the school office.
This week is British Science Week (9-18th March 2018)
British Science Week, run by the British Science Association, is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.
This year’s theme is ‘Exploration and Discovery’
Due to an extremely busy Spring term so far and a very short half term until we break up for Easter with lots of exciting things to still pack in tightly, we have made the decision to move our celebrations of British Science Week into the Summer term.
That’s not to say Science won’t be celebrated this week through our usual exciting Science lessons but we want to ensure we give it the credit it is due and truly give it an All Souls’ spin! Stay tuned to find out more information about what exciting visitors we have booked, competitions you can enter, activities that we have planned and, of course, an opportunity for us to dress up!
In the meantime, if you would like to find out more about British Science Week or find out about how you can get involved at home, please visit: https://www.britishscienceweek.org/
