Year 5 and 6 Cinema Trip

News & Views - The Into Film Festival Returns for 2021 - News - Into Film

Years 5 and 6 are in for a treat this Friday afternoon!

We are off to the cinema to watch The Addam’s Family 2 as part of this year’s Into Film festival. We will be walking to and from the Skydome Odeon. Children should be in their school uniform and bring their coats, hars, scarves and gloves (just in case!).

Children may bring with them their water bottle and 1 treat (up to a share bag size). This can be crisps, popcorn, sweets or chocolate.

There is no cost for this trip 🙂

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.

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.’

 

Out of this World Reports!

Year 5 have worked very hard to produce non-chronological reports about the planets. They researched interesting space facts both at school and at home and have managed to write some very informative paragraphs. They thought really carefully about their presentation and even included watercolour paintings from their Art lessons.

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

The Month of the Holy Rosary

As the month of October draws to a close we shared in a whole school prayer service, via Zoom, to pray the Rosary together.

We reflected on the Luminous Mysteries, meditating on these Mysteries of Light work to bring us a deeper understanding to the life of Jesus. They fill in the spaces for the lesser known areas of the childhood of Jesus and His suffering and death on the cross.

Five brilliant readers from Year Six treated us to the readings of scripture of these five mysteries and the other classes joined in with prayer and reflection.

It was a joy to see all the year groups from Reception through to Year Six sharing in such a special prayer.
