Well done to all the guitarists who took part in the assembly this morning. It was great to see you all showcasing your talent to the rest of the school as well as our visitors. We’d like to all say a big thank you to Mark for all of his hard work throughout the year.

** 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.

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.

Ackers Adventure Year 6 End of Year Trip

As a reward for contributing to what has been a fantastic year, we have organised a trip for Year 6 to Ackers Adventure in Birmingham on Thursday 13th July 2017.

You will receive an email containing all the details and how to pay through Sims Agora on Tuesday.

This is another exciting opportunity to make a few more memories as a class before the end of their time at All Souls. To try and suit all children, and bearing in mind the adventures we watched the children embrace in Dol-y-Moch, we have chosen three, one-and-a-half hour long, sessions for the children to take part in. Children will learn how to ski; work together to make their way across high ropes, tunnels and other exciting obstacles; and harness up to take the Leap of Faith.The cost of this trip is £30; however, we understand that school trips and events are costly at this time of year. Therefore, as it is their last trip here at All Souls’, we are contributing £10 to the cost of each child making the total amount payable £20 per child. To further keep costs low, we have decided to make two trips in the minibus which the school will cover the cost of. This does mean that half of the children will need to arrive at school for 8am and be picked up at 3.45pm; the other half will come to school at the usual time of 8.30am and be picked up at 5pm. We will try our best to fit this around your needs; however, as we need an equal amount of children on each minibus journey, this may be difficult. Therefore, an option slip will come home next week. I kindly request you tick as many options as you are able to accommodate on the reply.

Children will need to wear their school tracksuit and appropriate footwear. It is essential they also bring a pair of gloves as these are an absolute necessary to be able to take part in two of the challenges. Children are also asked to bring their packed lunch in a carrier bag.

Finally, I apologise for the late notice; as I am sure you are aware, it has been a busy few weeks in Year 6.

Thanks for your continued support.

Mrs Hartwell.

SRE (Year 6)

Year 6 children will be coming home today with the letter below outlining some important dates for parents and details associated with our SRE programme. Please return the reply slip to confirm whether you will be attending either of the sessions for parents.

Kind regards

Transition Afternoon No.2 for Year 3 (soon to be Year 4!)

We had another fabulous afternoon getting to know eachother!

They really enjoyed showing off their Maths skills as they created a poster with some sums to give answers to clues about who they were for us to figure out.

The children completed some fantastic artwork too that we can’t wait to get up in our new classroom.

We are all really excited for our third and final transition meeting on Wednesday5th July where we will be playing a variety of team-building games and writing our own autobiographies. The children should have come home with a question sheet so that they can find out some information to help them with this. They can bring it in with them on the day or hand it in before if they so wish.

Mrs Hartwell
