** If your child attends before school or after school club and you cannot arrange transport to suit these times as a result, then please contact me to let me know and I will arrange this by either picking them up/dropping them off myself or asking another staff member to help.

 

Important:

  • All children will require a packed lunch and plenty of drinks on Monday and Tuesday whilst at Bablake School.
  • They are to arrive wearing their school PE kit on Monday and Tuesday.
  • Please remind them to bring any bits of costume they need from home (footwear, socks, etc) with them in the day.
  • Children can bring a book to read whilst waiting in the wings.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via email jo.hartwell@llsoulsschool.co.uk or alternatively leave a message at school and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind regards,

Mrs Hartwell

 

Summer Festival and Parish Garden Party

Our annual Summer Festival and Parish Garden Party takes place this Sunday 2nd July. There will be the usual 9.30am Sunday mass, followed by a celebratory 11.15am mass which will include some children leading parts of it. This mass will be followed by a get together in the Presbytery Garden of All Souls’ Church where you are all invited to come along, play some games, bring food and drinks to share a picnic and enjoy the parish gala celebrations together.

As we have mentioned in the newsletters over the last couple of weeks, we would love to see as many children as possible at the 11.15am service to support us with various parts of the mass. We ask that children in the choir congregate together to join their voices as one and boost this joyous occasion. They will also perform a hymn unaccompanied.

On Friday 30th June, we are inviting children to come into school wearing non uniform and in return bring in a bottle that will go towards the free bar at the garden party.

Nursery/Reception – cans/bottles of Budweiser

Year 1 – cans of carling

Year 2 – cans of John Smiths (bitter)

Year 3 – cans of cider

Year 4 – bottles of white wine

Year 5 – bottles of rose wine

Year 6 – bottles of red wine

Please help us support our parish community in this celebration. We hope to see as many of our families there as possible. A letter has come home with children today; please complete and return the attached reply slip.

Thank you for your continued support.

Y5 learn new lingo!

Year 5 had a blast today at Bablake at the Modern Foreign Languages day. We took part in taster sessions in Spanish, Italian,German and French. We did lots of creative activities and even made our own replicas of the Eiffel Tower. Ask us to teach you how to say hello in a different language!

Well done to all the children: you were a credit to our school!

Here are some pictures of us in action.

Year 5 Visits This Week…

Thursday 22nd June: Modern Foreign Languages Day (at Bablake)

On Thursday, the class will be visiting Bablake for a languages taster day. The children will be travelling by mini-bus there and back and will be back at school before the end of the day. The children all need a packed lunch and a drink (preferably in a named carrier bag so that it can be disposed of).

If your child is taking part in the athletics competition on this day, they will not be coming with us to Bablake and will instead stay at school before attending the athletics in the afternoon.

Friday 23rd June: Humanities Day (at Bishop Ullathorne)

The theme for the day is “Gifts and Fruits of the Spirit” and this is a fantastic opportunity for the children to take part in a range of activities that will build on what we have learnt in our RE lessons and begin to prepare them for their Confirmation.  Coaches from Bishop Ullathorne will pick up the children from All Souls’at 9 o’clock and will bring us back ready in time for the end of the school day. Lunch will be provided by Bishop Ullathorne.

 

Children should come to school in full school uniform on both days as normal.

 

Well done to the Gaelic team

Huge well done to the Gaelic football team who competed against 8 other Catholic schools this afternoon at Finbarr’s sports and social club.  Our squad of players from Year 5 and 6 played really well.  For many of them it was their first competitive action and so we were delighted to finish 4th.  Well done.
