Y2 in Forest School!

We’ve had our first forest school session this week getting to know the area. The children were tasked with finding 3 things smaller than their thumb as well as having some free time to make, play, climb and build! We’re excited for our next session already!

Year 2 updates

Hello, I hope you are all well.

Just a few messages as we approach the last few weeks of term.

In our forest school sessions, we are going to be making a water filter. Please could you send in any used plastic bottles you have at home by 11th July. Ideally we would like 30 so children can make their own.

We will be going to the library on Monday 27th June so please ensure your child brings in their borrowed items and library cards.

Finally, we will be holding a cake sale to raise money for a very special visitor. To finish our learning of Medicine across time, we will be having a Florence Nightingale workshop on Friday 15th July. We will be holding the cake sale at breaktime and afterschool on Friday 1st July so we are asking for donations if possible for other year groups to buy. Any special dietary additions would be appreciated also!

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Clarke

Year 2 trip to Hatton!

We had a brilliant time on Wednesday at Hatton Farm. We fed goats, got to spend time stroking guinea pigs, had a ride on the farm safari, played on the zip wire and sand pit and finally had a brilliant time in the soft play! Here are some of the photos from the day.

Another successful trip to the library!

We walked to Earlsdon library again on Tuesday and borrowed some more books. The children enjoyed browsing and finding a book that interested them and some were very excited to find the book they were looking for. I can’t wait to hear all about them!

Our week in Year 2

This week In Year 2 we have done our teachers proud! Some of the children led bidding prayers at Mass and we have had fun programming in Computing. In RE we have been learning more about the Holy Spirit and have started our adventure story.

We will be going to the library on Monday 23rd May so please ensure your child has their library card and any library books to return so they can get a new book out. Many thanks for your co-operation in this.

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.

Trip to the library tomorrow (Y2)

Dear parents,

I hope you’ve enjoyed the Easter break.

Just a reminder that we will be walking to Earlsdon Library tomorrow to return our books from last month and take out new ones.

Please could you ensure the children bring these books back in as the library will not allow users with outstanding books to return to take out new ones.

 

Many thanks,

MIss Clarke

Alleluia! Alleluia! He is Risen!

Easter is the greatest and the most important feast in the Church. Today is a day of joy and celebration for Lent is over and we welcome Easter with happy and humble hearts. It marks the birth of our eternal hope. Jesus gave up His life for us, and from the grave He was raised to life again on the third day. New life rises from the ashes of death.

Today we are celebrating Christ’s victory over all burdens, the gift of eternal life for all who believe in Jesus. Every day, we are now given the chance to rise from the ashes of sin and guilt and can be refreshed and renewed. Remembering that Jesus still loves us and will continue to give us the strength we need.

The main and most important message of Easter is that nothing can harm us – not pain, sin, rejection, betrayal or death – because through believing in Christ we believe that he conquered all these, and we too, can conquer them if we continue to put our faith and trust in Him.

Lord, help me to remember your sacrifice and Resurrection. Help me to let you transform every cross, hardship, worry and burden in my life into joy. Lord, may your joy fill my life and be my strength in all things. Jesus, I trust in you. Amen

May God keep you and your families in his hands throughout this Eastertide. Wishing you a happy and safe Easter, love all the staff at All Souls’ xx

Planting potatoes!

Here are some pictures from our trip up to the Walled Garden this morning! They will be ready to be picked in July.
