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.

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

British Science Week Celebrations!

This Wednesday, we have all enjoyed a day full of Science in celebration of British Science Week. This year’s theme has been “Growth”.

Each class has had a chance to try out a range of scientific activities around the school.

In the Year 3 classroom (and outside) children have created and tested penguin nests to protect eggs from wind, rain and predators and allow them to grow into the next generation.

Some nests were more successful than others:

 

In Year 5, children mixed a specific set of ingredients to create slime and observe how it grows when it stretches.

In Year 4, children observed how different animals grow and adapt in response to their surroundings. We drew our careful observations and classified the animals based on their specific features.

In Year 6, minds were boggled as lines and objects appeared to grow all by themselves as children discovered different optical illusions.
Which line do you think is the longest?

(They’re all the same size!)

 

In Year 2, children tested out chemical reactions and measured how much balloons grew as a result of created gas. Which gas is made when bicarbonate of soda and vinegar are mixed?

Year 1 have been studying our neighbouring planet – Mars. Children have thought about how an animal may grow if it was living with Mars-like conditions of gravity, oxygen and weather.

Children also worked to create structures of how humans might develop and grow bases on Mars.

Finally, a big thank you to parents and children for some fantastic scientist costumes on display!

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.

Year 4’s World Book Day!

We’ve had a great time celebrating World Book Day in Year 4.

Thank you to all the children and families for their efforts in dressing up as favourite book characters – we were joined by heroes, villains and characters from many classic tales.

Through the day, we were challenged to create a 100 word story based on finding a mysterious key. Check back tomorrow to find out our winner and take a read of their piece of work.
