Young Voices 2022

We finally got to perform at Young Voices last night, with 120 other schools and 6000 children in total. We had a fantastic time and made our singing teachers very proud in terms of our performance but also our impeccable behaviour!

Well done to all the choir children for your committment and effort that you have put into learning the songs. Hopefully you’re not too tired today!

Please note that our Thursday afterschool rehearsals will stop and we will begin again on Thursday lunchtimes after the half term break where the choir will open up to new members!

May The Force Be With You.

As we prepare for Pentecost in Nursery, we have been learning about The Holy Spirit. We have learnt that The Holy Spirit is God’s helper and our helper ,and just like the wind and air, it is a powerful force that we can feel but we can’t see. To demonstrate this concept we did different activities to show the power of air by blowing out candles, having a balloon race by moving balloons by waving pieces of card, using fans to move marbles around, blowing through straws to move feathers, blowing bubbles and making bubble prints.

 

You’ve got this, Year 6!

Praying for all of our Year 6 children today as they begin their week of SATs.

They’ve all worked so hard and we are already so proud of the commitment and resilience they have shown this year. We know they will give them their best shot and continue to make us all, and themselves, extremely proud!

You’ve got this, Year 6. Keep shining bright and smiling!

Chill Out Day

PS. To celebrate the end of SATs week and to give the children a well-deserved break, we will be having a chill-out day on Friday 13th May. Year 6 are invited to come into school wearing their pyjamas or comfies ready for a day of movies and time enjoying each others’ company outside (weather permitting!).

World Book Day 2022

 

The Retail Trends Transforming World Book Day | licenseglobal.comIn school today, we celebrated World Book Day. The aim of the day is to celebrate the joy and value of books and the art of reading. Children, and many staff members, attended school dressed as book characters or dressed in their pyjamas and it was very interesting to see the different costumes. Thank you, parents, for your efforts in getting costumes prepared/made. Below are photographs of what each year group and staff looked like. Can you work out the various characters?

 

Children put their World Book Day tokens towards the cost of books at the Usborne Book Fair which was held in the School Hall before and after school. The fayre was very successful and the sale of books totalled an amazing £749.72. This means that the school will receive £449.83 to spend on books which is fantastic! Thank you very much for supporting this.

Usborne Book Fair | Rochester Montessori School

Children within each year group competed against each other to draw a picture and/or complete a piece of writing. Most of the tasks were based on a book that the children had had read to them in class. It was apparent, from looking at all of the entries, that the children put a great deal of thought and effort into this work and it was not an easy task to choose only one winner from each class. Winners will be announced during tomorrow’s Superstars Assembly.

And the winner is... - Girl on the River

Below are a selection of entries from each year group.

 

The Masked Reader was back this year as part of our World Book Day celebrations. Each day, a video has been posted of a member of staff reading an extract from a children’s book. However, the staff member’s face and voice have been disguised. The children have thoroughly enjoyed trying to use the clues given to them to work out who is behind the disguise. Who will tomorrow’s final Masked Reader be?

This year, as with previous years, World Book Day at All Souls was a great success and I would like to thank all those involved – pupils, parents and staff – for your time, efforts and support. The joys and benefits of reading are enormous and we, at All Souls, hope to continue to encourage and enthuse all of our children with above of reading that will last well beyond World Book Day.

Happy World Book Day!

Yesterday’s Masked Reader was Ms McGaffney. Well done to the children who correctly worked this out.

A video of another member of staff reading in disguise has been added below. Watch the video before using the clues to help you to try to work out which member of staff is reading.

Clues:

1) This person teaches and supports children across the school.

2) This person can often welcome children into school at the start of the school day.

3) This person shares a surname with another member of staff.

Tomorrow you will find out who is behind today’s disguise.
