Year 6 chose to fundraise for our local charity, Coventry and Warwickshire Mind, to show our support for World Mental Health Day 2021. On Monday, we completed a sponsored five mile walk around Draycote Water, putting our ‘Hats on 4 Mental Health’ to celebrate our differences.
The children were extremely motivated to complete the challenge (without moaning!) as a result of the amount of money they had been raising. The sunshine was on our side, allowing us to really take in the beautiful views of Draycote Water and we had so much fun walking, talking (a lot!), giggling and making memories. It was so lovely to be greeted on arrival and at the finish line by the staff from Coventry and Warwickshire Mind who were there to raise awareness and show their support.
Year 6 raised a whopping
for charity and I could not be any more proud of their efforts. Thank you to every single person who showed their support!
On Tuesday 19th October 2021, Year 6 will be visiting Coombe Country Park to take part in a river study and go pond-dipping as part of our Science and Geography units.
All children should wear their All Souls’ school tracksuits and have with them a waterproof coat, hat and gloves as it is due to rain. Children MUST bring with them a pair of tall wellies to change into at school to be able to take part in the river study activity. Please ensure children have a packed lunch with them in disposable packaging,
We were honoured to be invited to the Intercultural Mass at Saint Osburgs. We thank Alicia for her commitment and service to our Chaplaincy team and representing the school so respectfully.
Year 2 had a good day on Friday at the Transport Museum.
First we did some activities where we compared bikes throughout time, looked at the structure of a bike and what makes it safe, had a go on a scooter with rubber wheels and with wooden wheels and then did a science experiment where we found out that rubber stops quicker than metal which is why they are good on tyres!
Then we walked around the museum and had a look at the different cars, bikes, buses and taxis!
Then we had some chilled time drawing some bikes!
On Monday the 8th October, Year 4 will be visiting Coombe Abbey to complete as many of our All Souls’ 101 Pledge challenges as possible.
Please make sure children are dressed in their PE kit with jogging bottoms and track suit top to stay warm throughout the day. Children should also bring a waterproof coat. Hats and gloves would be recommended. Please also make sure children are wearing suitable footwear: wellies, walking boots or old trainers that are able to get muddy.
Those children who are not eligible for free school meals should take a packed lunch in a disposable bag with their initials on and a water bottle.

We’re looking forward to a busy, exciting day!
We are all super excited for our challenge to complete a 5 mile walk around Draycote Water on Monday 11th October to raise money for Mind Coventry and Warwickshire as part of their ‘Hats on for Mental Health’ campaign.
We have currently raised a whopping £1,037 and still have more sponsorship money to come in! We are sure that’s all the motivation we will need to complete the walk, come rain or shine!
Here are just a few reminders:
- Children should come into school in their full school tracksuit and wear appropriate walking footwear
- Have a small rucksack with a bottle of water and their packed lunch in
- A raincoat (in case the weather isn’t on our side!)
- A crazy HAT to wear with pride and celebrate our differences
We have had a brilliant morning in Year 2.
We learned about St Francis and then did a reading comprehension about him. Then we thought of ways that we could be helpful like him and wrote 5 things down. After breaktime we had a party to celebrate him! Thank you parents for sending in some yummy snacks!
Year 6 wore green and made donations of money and food today in support of CAFOD’s Go Green campaign!
Together we helped shine a light on some of the causes of the climate emergency while doing our bit to guard God’s creation and protect our common home.
All Souls is in the process of becoming an approved partner of the charity Rainbows – which provides support to children who are impacted by bereavement or loss. Myself and Mrs Hartwell have completed Rainbows facilitator training and, in the coming weeks, will be looking to begin our first Rainbows support group for children. The programme is designed to support children who are suffering or who have suffered from bereavement or loss (including separation/divorce of parents, loss of a pet or even moving home). If you feel that your child would benefit from this support, please do let me know so that they can be included in our first group. Further information and details will then be sent prior to the programme commencing and before you make a final decision about your child’s participation. Thank you.
On Friday 1st October 2021 we will be supporting the CAFOD family fast day.
We are asking the children to come in any green clothes they have, fancy dress welcomed, to show our support for the CAFOD appeal.
World leaders are meeting in Glasgow this November for a crucial meeting about the climate crisis and the future of our planet and its people. The Go Green appeal encourages Catholic schools around England and Wales to unite and fundraise to support communities around the world who are protecting the planet.
We are asking for a donation of non-perishable food for our local food bank and a donation to the CAFOD appeal (a suggested donation of £1 per family).
The Coventry food bank urgently need:
-UHT long life milk
-packets of mash
-snacks e.g. cereal bars and crisps
Thank you in advance for your support.
