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!).

Reception Tooth Experiment!

We have been thinking about how important it is to look after our teeth.  We have conducted an experiment to find out what drink is best for our teeth.  We used chalk to represent our teeth and placed it in cola, milk, water, blackcurrant juice and black tea.  We are going to check them daily to find out what happens.  Ask your child on Friday what we found out!

Online Safety

The following letter has been emailed to parents today:

The Online Safety Newsletter, referenced in the letter, can be downloaded here.

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

I’m sure that it would come as no surprise to you that during the last few years we have seen an almost exponential rise in the number of issues in school as a result of the misuse of technology.  New websites, apps and services appear much faster than we, as adults, can keep up with them and children are now invariably more competent users of technology than adults.  We have been shocked and mortified by some of the content which All Souls children have accessed on their devices at home as well as the way in which they have communicated with both each other and complete strangers, who they believe to be their friends. We also have grave concerns that this situation has the potential to become far worse in the near future.

Although we are very proud of our e-safety curriculum, and were praised for this at our last Ofsted inspection, we know that computing lessons alone are not enough to ensure that our children are equipped to keep themselves safe online.  We also appreciate how difficult it is, as parents, to find the balance between giving children freedom and independence, and putting in the rules and restrictions to keep them safe.

With that in mind, over the next few months we’ll be looking to provide you with additional support and guidance around e-safety and online behavior including more information and details around our school e-safety curriculum, practical help in putting restrictions on devices used at home and information sessions for parents where you can have any questions or concerns answered.

In addition, we have subscribed to a service, as a school, which will ensure that we are kept up-to-date with latest information, facts, figures and advice.  We will also receive a monthly newsletter, for distribution to parents, which is dedicated to the latest online safety information.  I am pleased to attach the first of these newsletters to this email and hope that you are able to take the time to read and think about its content.

With the summer holidays rapidly approaching, many children will have even greater access to Internet enabled devices, and I hope that this can serve as a reminder to us all of our responsibility to become knowledgeable around the topic in order to keep our children safe.

Please remember that school is always available, as a first port of call, to offer you advice and support with technology and e-safety matters.

Kind regards

Andy Cooke

Deputy Headteacher / e-Safety Lead

FAO – YEAR ONE parents

Our class (year 1) saint is Saint Paul and tomorrow is his feast day.  As we are celebrating his sainthood, the children are free to come in in non-uniform.

We will be having different activities throughout the day, learning all about why he was made a saint and a celebration wouldn’t be complete without some treats too.

Teddy Bear’s Picnic tomorrow! (Thursday)

A reminder that children are welcome to bring in a teddy tomorrow along with a picnic blanket (but only if you already have one!) as they will be having their lunch outside. Please note that unless you have informed your child to pre-order in the classroom, they will need to bring a packed lunch with them. It is NOT non-uniform day so children should attend school in the Summer uniform or PE kit as normal. Thank you!
