Year 4 are at Lunt Roman Fort today (Friday 26th November). Please ensure children are dressed in their outdoor PE kit and have suitable clothing to keep dry and warm. Waterproof coats, hats, gloves and wellies or walking boots are all recommended.

Please also make sure children have a lunch ready in a disposable bag.

We look forward to an excellent day and will be back in time for normal collection.

Year 4 at Coombe Abbey

On Monday the 8th October, Year 4 will be visiting Coombe Abbey to complete as many of our All Souls’ 101 Pledge challenges as possible.

Please make sure children are dressed in their PE kit with jogging bottoms and track suit top to stay warm throughout the day. Children should also bring a waterproof coat. Hats and gloves would be recommended. Please also make sure children are wearing suitable footwear: wellies, walking boots or old trainers that are able to get muddy.

Those children who are not eligible for free school meals should take a packed lunch in a disposable bag with their initials on and a water bottle.

We’re looking forward to a busy, exciting day!

Go Green for CAFOD!

On Friday 1st October 2021 we will be supporting the CAFOD family fast day.
We are asking the children to come in any green clothes they have, fancy dress welcomed, to show our support for the CAFOD appeal.
World leaders are meeting in Glasgow this November for a crucial meeting about the climate crisis and the future of our planet and its people. The Go Green appeal encourages Catholic schools around England and Wales to unite and fundraise to support communities around the world who are protecting the planet.

We are asking for a donation of non-perishable food for our local food bank and a donation to the CAFOD appeal (a suggested donation of £1 per family).

The Coventry food bank urgently need:
-biscuits
-chocolate
-UHT long life milk
-packets of mash
-snacks e.g. cereal bars and crisps
-tinned fruit
-tinned potatoes
-coffee

 

Thank you in advance for your support.

Mixing and matching

With the support of Ms Quinn through this afternoon, Year 4 have worked on their colour theory by mixing very exact amounts of the primary colours to make many different shades.

 

Check out our colour wheels, I think they look excellent!

Year 4’s Water Cycle

We got outside in the glorious weather today to make massive chalk diagrams of the water cycle. Can you see each step of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection?

Year 4 Water Fight

Tomorrow (Monday 19th) afternoon, Year 4 children will be taking part in a water fight on our school field to beat the summer sun.

Children can bring a small towel to help dry off, but will not require a change of clothes. Children do not need to bring any water pistols with them to school – these will be provided.

 

See you tomorrow (and start thinking of tactics!).

 

Mr Rolison

A busy week back!

What a week we’ve had!

 

From alpaca walking, meerkat wrangling and goat petting on Wednesday

to invertebrate hunts on Thursday, followed by a dinosaur invasion on Friday!

This certainly has been a busy return to school. Year 4 showed great behaviour throughout and positive attitudes when supporting friends who weren’t too sure of the animals they encountered. Well done!

 

 

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.’

 

A HUGE thank you!

A massive thank you for all of your kind donations for the local care homes. We were completely blown away by the sheer amount of treats from all of you, as were the care homes. All of the hampers were dropped off, with the letters and cards, on Friday and every single care home asked us to pass our thanks on. Due to your generosity, we have made someone’s Christmas a little brighter.

Thank you!

Donation Drive for local care homes

Our Christmas cards and letters have been written ready to send to 6 of our local care homes. We are hoping to put together a little hamper for each care home to give them a special gift and hopefully bring a smile to a face or two but we need your help to do that.

Whether it is a box of mince pies, packet of biscuits, some chocolate treats, shower gel or other toiletries, anything you can donate would be gratefully received to send to these care homes.

Please send any donations in with your children on Friday (11th December) so we can deliver them to the care homes in time for Christmas.

Many Thanks in advance for your support x
