Lent

Year 6 gathered with their prayer friends and the rest of the school to share a whole school Lenten prayer service. They created their footprint promises to show how they are going to try and follow in Jesus’ footsteps before helping Reception do the same.

St. Patrick’s Day

We would like to warmly invite all parents, carers and members of our community to our St. Patrick’s Day Coffee morning which is taking place on this Friday 15th March from 9:15am-12pm. The morning will be a change to celebrate the day by getting together over coffee and a cake and being entertained by a series of performances by each class and followed by our own Irish dancers.

Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 will be singing between 10am-10:30am.
Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 will be singing between 11am-12am.

Entrance to the event will cost £3.50 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.

This week is British Science Week.

British Science Week is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths. The theme this year is JOURNEYS.

To celebrate, we have lots of exciting things coming up over the next two weeks, such as creating our own class question and going on a journey to find out the answer to it, creating posters to enter the annual BSA competition, taking part in a whole school quiz and of course a little bit of fancy dress to end it all on Friday 22nd March!

Please keep checking the blog to find out what we get up to!

A wonderful week in Year One

An exhausting but exciting week in Year One this week! We started by continuing our work on measure. We began looking at weigh and mass and comparing these different weights. We were shocked to find out that sometimes just because the quantity of an object is more doesn’t mean that it weighs more.

It was Shrove Tuesday this week and to celebrate we had pancakes with an array of different toppings. Despite being disturbed by the fire alarm (Thanks to Mrs Jilks) the children enjoyed the pancakes and began to talk about what we were going to go without during Lent.

On Wednesday we had our Ash Wednesday mass and the children were fantastic! It was a bit longer than our normal mass but we got ashes placed on our head. We had a very special prayer service where we locked away the special word and decided who our special intentions would be during Lent.

We celebrated World Book Day on Thursday and the children all looked wonderful in their costumes. The children had the chance to go and share a book with different teachers and mixed classes where they completed different tasks. The children also completed a huge collaborative colouring project for WBD that we are hoping to put display once we’ve found the right space for it.

Today we spent the morning making cakes using the skills we had learnt in maths this week. The children had different ingredients in bags and they had to weigh the correct amount that the ingredients told them. The children were great and could even use a measuring jug to get to 450ml. We had our fingers crossed that we had got the measurements right so we could eat the yummy cakes in the afternoon.

A great week! If any outstanding Mummy and me pictures could be in by next Friday that would be great.
Have a lovely weekend!

Tuesday by David Wiesner

This week we began our new English unit based on this fabulous picture book, Tuesday by David Wiesner. The whole class loved unravelling this humerous story as each picture was revealed. They were then tasked with writing an exciting blurb to persuade readers to delve in to the adevnture too! Here is an example of what they produced:

“In an average town (and on a hardly average Tuesday evening!), a curious event occurs, sending a wave of uncertainty over the otherwise quiet night. Peculiar pests roam the streets, searching for mischief and mayhem. Hovering creatures terrorise the innocent town as more and more people drift off to sleep for the night. Will the morning reveal the creatures’ identities? Or, will the unique mystery of this Tuesday night forever remain a secret? Find out in this silent but gripping story by the incredible David Wiesner.”  By Harry Wicks.

Lent

Lorcan, James and Pierce led a beautiul and well-prepared prayer service for Year 6 and Reception today.

They explained clearly to their prayer friends what Lent is all about it, read and explained relevant scripture and included some lovely prayers. They were also given the chance to discuss what they had decided to give up this Lent. Reception listened so well and were able to answer lots of questions after.

Both classes really enjoy this special time they spend together every week.

World Book Day at All Souls!

 

We had a fantastic time for World Book Day yesterday; everybody, including staff, looked fabulous in their costumes! We had many activites across the school to celebrate our love of books and stories. Children swapped classes to hear a story being read by a different staff member, and took part in activites in those sessions, including making wands and flying kites!

KS2 children took part in the BBC Live Lesson where 3 well-known authors were on hand to answer questions and share extracts of their books. The lesson was interactive and many schools across the country took part so we were especially surprised when one of our photographs (which had been emailed in) was shown on screen along with our school shout out!

The rock creations were brilliant- thank you to everyone who participated. A winner was chosen from each year group and those children have received a £5.00 book voucher to spend at our Book Fair which is taking place from March 20th-27th. All children will receive a £1.00 WBD token to spend at the Fair. We will keep these until then to prevent them from being lost. Left-over vouchers will be distributed after the fair.

*Thank you to everyone for supporting this wonderful day! Share a story with your child to celebrate World Book Day*
