All Saints CE Primary School 24TH JUNE 2020 Newsletter

I hope this newsletter finds you well! We have been busy in school with children working and playing happily in their bubbles. From looking at the work received from the ASUS Go! website, I would say that our All Saints who are completing home learning are working super hard too! We are so proud of the way everyone is trying to manage these changes and trying to stay positive.

A few key dates

Monday 29th June- Class details for next year will be emailed out

Friday 3rd July- For those of you who have children in school, we will send reports and school books home with your child. For everyone else, there are two options. On the Friday afternoon between 1.30 and 2.30pm, you will be able to collect your child's report from outside the front of school; a member of staff will be there to give them out. If you are unable to collect the report, then we will post it out to you on Monday 6th July.

A message from our Chair Of Governors

On behalf of the governors, I just want to say a huge THANK YOU!

Firstly to staff for all their hard work in preparation for school reopening and welcoming back Reception, Year 1 & Year 6. It is testament to their excellent planning that things went smoothly, with children settling quickly and adjusting so well to all the necessary changes.

Secondly thank you to parents for your tremendous support and encouragement during these very challenging times. You have done an amazing job juggling home schooling with work and home life and some of the work that has been shared has been a joy to see.

Finally thank you to the children who have continued to be full of energy and so adaptable. It’s great to have some of them back in school and we look forward to welcoming all children back as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Stay safe

Sheila Grice

Chair of Governors


Join the Silly Squad and the Let's Get Silly Ambassadors for an afternoon (ending with a bedtime story) of family fun!

The Summer Reading Challenge 2020 launched on Friday 5th June and you can join the Silly Squad on a new adventure by setting your own personal reading challenge to complete this summer. Create a free profile to keep track of your books, reviews, and all of the special rewards you unlock along the way. You'll also find heaps of super silly activities, quizzes, videos, games and more to keep you entertained at home. This year's Challenge runs from June to September, so there is plenty of time to take part and get silly this summer.


We hope you are all enjoying our online platform ASUS Go! We have continued to have lots of positive feedback which is greatly appreciated. The work being sent in is great quality and shows a real range of activities being completed.

We are just sending out our certificates for completing weekly trackers- well done to all of those children who are managing to stay motivated with their home learning. Well done and thank you also to the parents and carers who are trying their very best to support their children at home!

Thanks also to those of you who completed our survey, helping us to keep in touch with you all. We have taken on board all of your feedback and appreciate your time each week to do this. It really helps us to know how you are all feeling and to get the "children's voice" too.

The most recent Keep In Touch link is here:


Well done to our Year 1 children who won a recent competition- a box of reading books to share is on its way!

Fundraising with our PTA

The PTA are busy fundraising for our school in a number of ways at the moment. Any support would be greatly appreciated.

You can look at our Crowdfunder page https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/all-saints-sapcote-pta-fundraising-for-school-outside-resources

We have registered with Easyfundraising.com You can register with them and then select eligible shops and services through the site/app and shop as normal. The PTA will then get a donation from the retailer within 2 weeks of the transaction.

Roxanna in year 1 wanted to do a sponsored bike ride/walk to help raise money for school. She is going to do minimum of 2 miles a day for a week either on her bike or walking from Saturday 20th June to Friday 26th June. Her current target is £100.00. You can donate by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/roxie-hardwell?utm_term=gKeBQb7vR

Can you help?

We are currently developing our Forest School area. Forest School will begin in September with Miss Carvell and will be an amazing and exciting asset to the school. We would like to have a collection of spare clothing and wellies in school so that we can make use of the area, whatever the weather.

If you are having a clear out, we would welcome donations of waterproofs, coveralls and wellies!

You may have also seen that we are trying to revamp KS1's outdoor area to provide more play-based learning. We are still looking for cushions, solar powered lights and brightly coloured fence/shed paint.

Many thanks!

I am sure you were all watching on Friday when All Saints made it onto BBC Breakfast News, the 1 o'clock news and the 5 o'clock Coronavirus Update.

We are so proud of our staff and year 6s, including their parents who represented our school so well. Some of our interviews didn't make the cut but I can tell you that they were amazing! The children and parents spoke confidently and the experience was definitely one to remember.

A big thank you also to the members of staff off screen who came in super early to help out- thank you Mr Wyness and Miss Ellingworth!
