25 Years Service- Mrs Oussia
We are incredibly proud to say that Mrs Oussia has worked at All Saints for 25 years!
On 9th January 2021, Mrs Oussia achieved 25 years service with Leicestershire County Council, Federation of All Saints and Sharnford Church of England Primary Schools and Inspiring Primaries Academy Trust.
During these years Mrs Oussia has worked with many children and with her help their learning experience has been a happy and positive one.
Mrs Oussia also worked in our school kitchen for the School Food Support Team. We would not like to guess how many meals she has helped to cook!
Thank you so much Mrs Oussia for your long service and commitment to All Saints Church of England Primary School!
We have organised some treats for Mrs Oussia to try to show her how special she is to us, but would love to hear some of your comments and memories too. Please feel free to email the school office or send them via Facebook Messenger.
Maisy-Rose has won our super Active Challenge on Strava which encouraged you to get out and about. Maisy-Rose planned her route carefully to create this super picture. Well done! Enjoy your prize :)
Who Inspires You? - Letter writing competition
Lana and Esme are the winners of our recent handwriting competition. Last month, I challenged you all to pen a handwritten letter to tell me who inspires you. Lana and Esme got full marks for presentation and content. Lana was inspired by two great authors- William Shakespeare and Enid Blyton, while Esme wrote about her very patient and fun Nana who never complains!
Well done both, fabulous writing and thoughts. Prizes will be on their way to you soon!
World Book Day
We had the most amazing time yesterday celebrating World Book Day. It was so lovely to see everyone joining in with activities both in person and virtually.
Our Reading Café ran for over 6 hours, with over 40 books, extracts and poems being read by different members of staff. WOW! Reading the children's comments in the chat box was brilliant- it was so nice to read that some of you were off to order a new book after being inspired by one you heard!
The Story Jars were incredibly creative and impressive. Lots of care and attention had been taken and the result was brilliant!
The winners of the Story Jar Competition are.....
Millan and Harris!
Millan created a "Supertato" scene, while Harris depicted "The Midnight Gang" in his jar. Both jars were full of handmade details that the boys had clearly worked hard on themselves. Well done both! Mrs Palmer will be in touch with a certificate and for you to pick a book prize!

We also had some excellent outfits on display!
A huge thank you to our Literacy Lead Mrs Allen for organising the day
Next week will be fantastic for two reasons; not only are we all coming back to school, but it's British Science Week! This year the theme is "innovation" and ordinarily, at this time, we would be spending a whole week exploring Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in that theme. However, this year we will be exploring this all the way up until Easter. We will be looking at Innovators, designing ideas, reflecting on what the world might look like in 2050 and writing a diary pretending we are from that future, looking back on today. If you want to take part at home, please follow the ink below.
Year 5/6 Science
The Year 5 & 6 children recently demonstrated the process of pollination as a role-play this week, taking on the role of flowering plants and insect pollinators (with balls for pollen!) Looks like they had a great time!
Science in Little Acorns
The Little Acorns have been investigating floating and sinking in their science activities recently.
They investigated items around the classroom- thinking about their shape, size, weight and density before predicting whether the item would float or sink. Amazing discussion and predictions!
Later in the week, the children - both at home and at school - began designing and making their own boats. They found things to use as bases, masts and sails. Lots of these fabulous creations floated too!
Flotsam work by Birch and Willow
Birch and Willow Class have been enjoyed a wordless book called Flotsam by David Wiesner. It tells the story of a magical camera which was washed up on the shore.
The classes first started exploring the word Flotsam. They investigated some items which were washed up on a beach and began creating characters for the people who might have lost these things. If you want to watch the video which inspired them, then click below.
These are some of the fabulous character descriptions the children came up with based on the possessions.
In the book Flotsam, we see a series of underwater worlds caught by this magical camera. Year 6 drafted some fabulous fantasy underwater descriptive writing inspired by this, such as this example from Harry A:
and this amazing example from Connor...
