Harry Potter trip!

Our trip to Warner Brothers’ Studios is on Thursday and we are all very excited! A few last minute pointers:

All children are to wear their school tracksuit. A packed lunch is required for lunch time along with a drink. Children will be having their evening meal at the studios (please ensure that you have paid for this on Sims Agora). Maximum spending money on the day is £10, if you have pre-ordered a gift for more than this, that is fine (please ensure that gifts have been paid for on Sims Agora before the day).

We are expected back at 8.45pm- we will update the school website and Twitter account as we return. Please check on there for any changes to our arrival time.

Please read again the letter with all of the information about the trip for a recap- it’s attached below.

*If you know that your child suffers from travel sickness, please provide travel sickness tablets for the coach trip to and from Warner Brother Studios*

We are hoping that this will be a memorable experience for our children to finish off the hard work they have put in on Harry Potter.

Many thanks for your support.

 

Mrs McDevitt & Mr Rolison.

No Rules Day

In order to carry out a true debate, Years 3, 4 and 5 took part in a No Rules Day this week to see what life is like without any rules.

Children were free to explore classrooms as they pleased and were responsible for solving their own questions and problems.

Once 9 o’clock was reached, children surged across the school to decide their own timetable for the day.

After the morning of No Rules, the afternoon began with dealing with the consequences of freedom – clean up. The children worked extremely well to have the whole school back and tidy within 15 minutes.

 

In the afternoon, KS2 began their debate as to whether school rules should be kept. Both For  and Against

were determined their side would be victorious!

In Year 5, we fiercely debated and defended our points of view before coming to an overall consensus that a relaxed ‘no rules’ or ‘fewer rules’ day would be welcome around once a term.

 

 

Well done to the children for staying safe and responsible through the day and for tidying up in such an efficient manner.

End of term in Year 5

On Friday, Year 5 will be enjoying a relaxing end to the term as a reward for hard work throughout the months. Children are invited to come to school in comfortable wear (pajamas, onesies or other comfortable clothes).

We will be watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (rated PG) in preparation for our upcoming trip to Harry Potter studios in the new term. Common Sense Media gives a suggested age of 10+, suitable for Year 5. If you would prefer your child not take part, please let me know.

In the afternoon, we will be continuing the theme of the day with craft activities linked in to the third Harry Potter book.

Year 5 and 6’s trip to Planet Ice!

Another fabulous trip to Planet Ice was enjoyed by Year 5 and 6 today as they bravely took to the ice (some of them for their very first time!).

Whilst some children spent most of their time on their bottoms, others transformed into semi-professionals! Every child (and adult!) showed great perseverence and resilience. Their behaviour was fabulous and lots of fun was had. They should be very proud of themselves.

 

Year 5 in the woods

Starting off this week, Year 5 have risen to the challenge of setting up All Souls’ new forest area.

Ask your child which tree they’ve planted and watch it grow through the year.

When our task was complete, we enjoyed an afternoon of hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows.

 
Well done to all of Year 5 for hard work in planting trees and brilliant behaviour and teamwork throughout.

 

All Souls’ Christmas Bazaar!

This Saturday is our annual Christmas Bazaar and we can’t wait to see you all there!

There will be lots of different stalls, cake and tea, a performance from our wonderful choir, a secret room for present purchasing, a very special visit from a very special man and lots more for you to enjoy!

As always, we thank you for your kind donations and encourage them to keep on coming. We are in particular need of chocolate (bars/tubs/etc) and any other little bits and bobs for the tombola or raffle prizes.

We would also like to remind you that this Friday is ‘Bring a bottle’ into school day where we ask the children to bring in a bottle in exhange for wearing non-uniform for the day! These donations do really make a difference and make our bazaar the success it usually is.

Many thanks 🙂

Tree Planting

Year 5 have worked amazingly hard today to get our first set of trees planted in our new forest area.

Come back to see our progress over the next few weeks as we aim to get over 200 trees in the ground.

 

  

 

Choose Respect

To welcome in Anti bullying week 2018, feet arrived at school this morning clad in every manner of sock imaginable. Best of all, no two of them were alike.

The message at the heart of Odd Sock day is that each person is unique in their own way. Today is a celebration of individual differences and as you can see, Year 5 have pulled that off in style.
