Early Years Jubilee Celebrations

Reception and Nursery had a lovely day today celebrating the platinum Jubilee.  We played games and completed lots of different crafts.  We then ended the day with a party outdoors with jelly and ice cream.

Occupations and beyond 10!

Reception have been exploring different occupations.  We have been role playing in our Police Station.  The children were very excited to investigate a robbery from the shed.  After taking finger prints we found the thief!

In Mathematics we have been exploring numbers beyond 10 in a variety of different ways.

Walk against Hunger sponsorship

A huge thank you to those who have already donated so generously to our walk against hunger campaign that we completed during the days of Lent. Just a reminder that these donations will be sent next week so please send in what you can.

The children walked over 200km around our playground over the 4 weeks of Lent and spent time reflecting on their own relationship with God as well as gaining a sense of empathy for those in our global community who must walk over 5km a day just to get food and water. Some classes took the challenge to the next level and walked barefoot! A beautiful testament to the lives of others.

Thank you in advance for supporting your children who undertook this wonderful challenge in aid of CAFOD.

Reception Memory Walk

Reception helped Mrs Jilks practise for her Memory walk for the Alzheimer’s Charity.  We chose this worthy cause for our class fund raiser.  Thank you for all your donations we managed to raise over £400 pounds!

Science Day

Reception have had a fun day conducting some amazing experiments.  Some of the things we made were rainbows, volcanoes, invisible ink messages, dancing pictures and planted seeds. Below are some photographs from the day.

FAO – Reception and Year 1 Parents

Please watch the video below in preparation for the new book scheme that will start to be sent with your children in the next few weeks. The video goes through how phonics is taught at All Souls and then an introduction to the new reading books that we have and that will start being sent back with your children.

Some children have already received these as a trial run but this gives you more detail as to how to effectively use these books at home to support your children’s reading and acquisition of phonics.

We are very excited to begin the further development of our reading scheme and hope that you will support us with these new changes.

British Science Week

We will be celebrating British Science Week from the 14th – 18th March 2022.

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

To celebrate, throughout the week, we will be doing lots of exploration around the theme of growth and the Science all around us which will involve a whole school carousel of investigations and maybe even some animals to meet.

On Wednesday 16th March, we are inviting children to come into school dressed as a famous or crazy Scientist for a £1 donation to go towards our Science curriculum.

Ash Wednesday

An Ash Wednesday Prayer with Reflection Prompts for 2022

Today, we start our Lenten journey once more. During this season of Lent, we are called to make a change in our daily lives as we prepare for Easter, We began this by sharing in a whole school mass for Ash Wednesday.

 

Busy Last Week of Term

We explored the Sacrament of Baptism and role played the different roles and parts of the service.  We ended the week with a picnic with our traditional tale toys and had our faces painted to match!

We also did lots of Mathematics, exploring height, time and the composition of 6,7 and 8.
