Our youngest All Saints' Superstars are now full time in school and are doing incredibly well. Miss Carte and Miss Fraser are so impressed with the way the Little Acorns have settled into school life and are loving getting to know all of the individual personalities. They are already showing super manners, good friendships and team work as they get to grips with lots of new learning through play.
Miss Carte's class were very busy this week looking at "The Wheels on the Bus". They have based lots of activities on the song and book. They even set up a little town in the hall and role played some road safety. Lots of fabulous learning!
On Friday 9th October we are coming together to support Hello Yellow, which is a charity which focuses on young people's mental health. On Friday we invite the children to swap an item of their uniform for something yellow or to add a yellow accessory, in exchange for a suggested donation of £1.

We hope you have a lovely day!
This is normally the time of year where we would all gather in Church to give thanks for the lovely food we have. Our classes would join together and, along with our community, we would celebrate Harvest and give back to those in need. Obviously we will miss out on that special occasion this year but we would still like to help our wider community by supporting our local foodbank. The Foodbank are desperately in need of the following items:
small packs of nappies (size 4-6), shower gel (<250-300 ml), shampoo (250-300 ml), cereal - extra large (26+ portions), veg carrots - tinned medium (300 g), veg tinned - large (325 g+), meat cold tinned (ham/corned beef) , sponge pudding - standard (300 g), biscuits - large (400 g+), instant coffee - small (100 g) , instant drinking chocolate (made with water), long life fruit juice (not chilled), powdered milk (340 - 450 g), instant mash (180 g), rice - small (up to 500 g), snacks tinned (400 g), jam, instant snack noodles, pasta snacks – packets, deodorant (male & female), shaving foam, tin openers, washing powder (small) ,sugar (500 g only please) and instant custard (made with water)
Over this following week, October 5th-9th, we would be extremely grateful if each child could bring in a donation for Hinckley Food Bank, which we will then forward to those in need. Thank You.
Walk, Scoot and Ride!
All Saints is taking part in the Leicestershire Active Travel Month which aims to increase the number of children travelling to school by walking, cycling and scooting. Actively travelling to school has many benefits for your child: it helps keep them fit and healthy, can increase concentration levels in class, helps to develop road safety skills and is fun. Reducing the number of cars around the school will also help to make the area quieter, safer, cleaner and less congested.
To encourage as many families as possible to actively travel to school we will be holding a special Active Travel to School Month during October with each week having a different active travel focus;
Week 1 W/C 5th October – Walking week
Week 2 W/C 12th October – Cycling week
Week 3 W/C 19th October – Half term week, explore your local green spaces
Week 4 W/C 26th October – Scooter week
Each class will have an active travel wall chart to record how pupils are travelling to school during the month.
If you aren’t able to travel actively all the way from home you can still take part by parking a distance from the school (e.g. 10 minutes away) and walking, cycling or scooting the rest. Please make sure your child's bike and scooter is safe to ride to school and you park in a safe and appropriate place.
This academic year we are trying to form some healthier habits in school. Whilst we encourage children to have a snack at break time, can we ask that this is not crisps, chocolate or sweets. Fruit is free for every KS1 child and KS2 children are welcome to bring in a piece of fruit, cheese strings, cereal bars etc that are chocolate free or any other healthy snack as long as this does not contain nuts. Don't forget water bottles too! Thank you.
