Year 1+2 trip to Twycross Zoo

We are really looking forward to our trip to the zoo with the children tomorrow. Just a couple of reminders:

  1. We are due back at 3.15 and will release the children as usual from classrooms.
  2. Please send your child with a bottle of water as it is supposed to be a hot day!
  3. Ensure they have been covered with long-lasting sun cream and a hat.

Thank you for your support,

Year 1 and 2 picnic

On Thursday (10th June) we are going to Hearsall Common to have a picnic as a key phase. Please ensure your child has a packed lunch on this day or altenatively, the children can request a sandwich from school. We will be asking the children tomorrow about their choice.

 

Thank you for your cooperation!

We are published authors!

Here are just some of the stories that the children in Year 2 have published this week. They have worked so hard to include exciting vocabulary in their adventure story and I have LOVED reading them all! I’m very proud of them and they should be too!

Y2 at the Walled Garden!

We finally managed to get to the Walled Garden today! First we listened to find out how to plant potatoes. We needed to space them out evenly and then cover them with soil. They will grow over the summer so we are really keen to check on them to see how they have grown! Then we planted them and covered them using a trowel.

Next, we walked around the garden looking at some of the other plants which have been planted there. There were tomatoes and turnips as well as lots more vegetables!

Miss Clarke thought it would be very cruel to take us to Allesley Park without having a play so we walked down to the park and had a short go on the swings and equipment. We had a great time!

Boat making!

Firstly I just wanted to say a huge thank you for sending in the plastic bottles and egg boxes! The children had a great afternoon designing, testing and evaluating their boats. Some were more effective than others but we talked about what we would do differently next time! Here are some pictures of our creations.

Year 2 updates

This week in Year 2 we have two exciting things happening!

On Wednesday 19th May, we are going to be designing and making our own boats from egg cartons and plastic bottles. Please could you send these items in on or before Wednesday.

 

Also, on Friday 21st May, we will be going on the school minibus to Allesley Park’s Walled Garden (weather dependent) and planting some potatoes. Please send your child into school in their school tracksuit on this day.

Thank you in advance!

Science afternoon fun

Here are some pictures from our fun afternoon of Science activities. If you forgot to bring in your £1 yesterday please send it in ASAP, we were raising money for CAFOD. Thank you in advance!

Year 2 updates

As part of their learning during Lent, the children were challenged to raise money for CAFOD, a charity which helps overseas development. In Year 2 we have decided that on Monday 26th April the children will dress up as crazy scientists and then have an afternoon of Science experiments. We are asking the children to think of ideas to test out and hopefully have an afternoon of fun! For this to take place, we are encouraging the children to bring in a donation of £1, which will then be donated to CAFOD.

On Monday we will also be giving out new reading books. Please send back any books you still have at home as soon as possible. If you aren’t sure whether you still have some please email me- I have a list of children who haven’t returned them yet. We will be collecting books in on a Friday to quarantine them to send them back out on a Monday.

 

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Ash Wednesday – We begin our Lenten Journey

Today marks the beginning of our Lenten journey. Next week, when we are back to learning, we will be having daily reflections about this special season which will be accessed through Google Classroom. Please find below a copy of the Lenten calendar from Walk with Me, do your best at home to live out some of these daily challenges.

Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of reflection where we reflect on who we are and the people we aspire to be. Today and in the coming weeks, we aim to focus on our relationship with God, often through choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of ourselves for others. As we think about these promises, let us think of making a true sacrifice as an individual or as a family to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

This special time marks the beginning and the end. We came from love, we live in love, we return to love. May our Lenten journey as our All Souls’ family be a sharing of this love with all creation by opening our hearts to Him in trust. May our Lenten promise focus on creating in us quiet places where God can refresh and heal us, and we can come and rest awhile.

May we remember that ‘we are dust and to dust we shall return.’
