All Saints CE Primary School 8 th APRIL 2020 Newsletter

Latest Updates

Firstly, a huge thank you to all of the parents who we have spoken to over the last few weeks- you have been so lovely and supportive of the school and everything we are trying to do in these uncertain times. Please know that messages received over the phone, by email or even through Facebook, are passed on to all of our staff and are really giving us a boost- we are very thankful for such a lovely school community!

We would also like to thank you for not using the school provision unless absolutely necessary- we know that lots of you are balancing work and childcare and we understand that this is no mean feat. We are more than happy to provide placements for children where there is no other option, and want to reassure you that everyone who is in school, is working hard to stay safe. Thank you to all of our front line parents and key workers who are serving us all so well.

Finally, if your child is entitled to Free School Meals, then vouchers are on their way out to you as I write. They were posted on Monday evening. We are aiming to email out future vouchers, so if your email address is incorrect and you have not been getting our recent correspondence since school closed, or if you cannot access a voucher over email, please get in touch with the school office asap. The office is manned between 9am and 3pm every weekday. If your call is missed then please do leave a message and someone will call you back.

Google Classrooms

Just a reminder that staff will not be adding work over the Easter break but please feel free to use the site and fill in the reflection log to tell us what you have been up to.

If you get stuck with Google Classrooms please email helpmrsp@asasps.org and Mrs Palmer will get back to you as soon as possible.

I See Reasoning Maths Courses for Parents

As parents, you are able to profoundly influence the attitudes that children have towards maths. You can also help children to build the knowledge and skills to become strong, enthusiastic mathematicians! This series of online workshops will help to show how parents can support children at home. Sessions are run on Zoom. You are able to join a session without having a Zoom account.


Free AUDIBLE stories for kids

For as long as schools are closed, they're open. Right now, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids!


This YouTube channel is run by a teacher and her little girl. They have some amazing, fun maths games and also some tutorials for maths methods. We have used them in school before and they are really well explained! They also use lots of concrete equipment and suggest things which you may have around the house to use.


Hour of Code

This is a fantastic website where you can complete an Hour of Code and gain a certificate at the end. We love using it at school!


Incredibox Music Creator

This is a great website where you can create your own Beatbox music. You drag and drop beats to "dress" the beatboxers. It is great fun!


Stonehenge SkyScape

This website has been created by English Heritage to enable people around the world to experience the skies above the iconic stone circle, to learn about movements of the sun, moon and planets and to see the solar alignment at Stonehenge.

While sitting at home, for a bit of fun for all the family to get involved in, why not cook an ‘Interesting Dish’ of your own creation from any bits and pieces you might have lying around – and WIN a £100 voucher to spend in any Hinckley Town centre Business of your choice when they re-open! 👨‍🍳👩‍🍳🎉

There will also be 2 Runner Up prizes of £50, and in addition, a £25 prize will be awarded for each of 2 separate entries for the following categories:

All you have to do is prepare and cook any dish you like from a recipe that YOU create (not from a cookery book), take a picture and complete the online entry form before April 30th 2020. 🍝

When the virus is defeated (and it will be!!) we propose to collect the best Recipes and, together with their picture and surname of the family who created it, print them into a booklet – it will be for sale with ALL proceeds going to a local NHS Staff Relief Fund. As well as the sum raised, details of the winning creations will also be provided to the Media. 🌈

So, to take part, please complete the form below and don’t forget to add a picture of your dish! 🥘

The competition will run until April 30th and is open to all residents of the Borough of Hinckley and Bosworth. The Judges (both Volunteers) will be the Top Chefs from the St Martins Lodge Hotel and Conference Centre in Leicester who have many years’ experience between them of creating feasts for the great and the good, not to mention the famous! Our grateful thanks to them. 👩‍🍳👨‍🍳
