On Monday 17th May, the next exciting phase of building will begin at All Saints. This will provide us with a new Year 1 classroom for next year, extension and better access to Maple class and an additional group room.
The building work will mean some disruption to EYFS and Key Stage 1 drop offs and pick ups for the remainder of the summer term. EYFS will need to enter through the Key Stage 2 gate where they will be met on the playground by staff and walked safely around to their classrooms. There will be similar arrangements for parents collecting at the end of the day. Key Stage 1 (Ash, Maple and Oak class) will all need to enter and exit via the front Ash class door. More specific details will be sent out next week via email. Thank you in advance for your flexibility with this!
During the summer, work will begin on a hall extension, followed by work in the autumn to create a modular build of two new year 6 classrooms. This will complete all planned phases of building work at All Saints and provide us with the space needed to eventually have 14 classes.
Wear your hair in the craziest way possible on Friday 28th May 2021.
We ask for a £1.00 donation to take part, if you can spare more please feel free to donate more.
Please bring your money into school.
Each class with have their own bucket to put the money into and the PTA will collect it after the bank holiday week.
We are not using an online platform to do this because we are not yet a registered charity and will be charged a fee.
We ask that you minimise any use of colour in your hair as it is still a school day.
There are loads of ideas online using pencils, pipe cleaners and just your hair in general!!!
Some staff will also be taking part!
Our new garden
Mr Duncan has recently been busy securing a grant from Blaby District Council in order for us to develop a neglected part of school into a wonderful garden.
A huge thank you to Mr Duncan and his family, Mrs Smith and her family and Mrs Palmer and her family for giving up their weekends to complete this project. We must also say a big thank you to Sapcote Garden Centre who have helped enormously with ideas and heavily discounted, if not free, materials!
The garden is already being used to grow a variety of vegetables and herbs. Watch this timelapse video of year 5 planting our potatoes!
All children in school are currently working on a design for a brilliant new graffiti mural to brighten up the wall to the right of the garden.
Here are some great before, during and after photos.
All Saints' Superstars
We are incredibly proud to say that one of our year 6s, Erin, has been selected to be joint captain of the Hinckley Rugby Football Club girls under 13s rugby team. Being selected as joint captain is impressive in itself, but you may have noticed that Erin has been selected for the under 13s. Ordinarily Erin would still play in the under 11s category, so this achievement is doubly impressive. Well done Erin!
Jack and Bethany recently raised over £650 for Cancer Research UK. They walked a minimum of 10,000 steps everyday in March, come rain or shine, and even when they were both poorly with a cold. They also both achieved new personal bests on their step counts- Jack's was 28,443 and Bethany's was 24,586! What a fabulous thing to do!
Little Acorns have recently been looking at mini-beasts and frogs as part of their Creation theme.
The children had their own Petri dish to collect any insects and each group came together to share what they had found. We used a pictorial sheet to record the different types of mini beasts we uncovered and managed to find spiders, worms, a slug, snail, spider, beetle, ant, wood louse and an earwig.
Grace and Aida have been choosing their own criteria to sort mini-beasts!
Super gardening centre roleplay!
The children have been labelling frogs and mini-beasts and writing their own super-sentences.
Some froggy themed maths!
Key Stage 1
Oak, Ash and Maple have been studying the Victorians and seem to be thoroughly enjoying learning all about this important period in history. To really understand what it was like for Victorian children, Ash class re-enacted a Victorian School Room and had a go at being 'working' children by 'scrubbing' the playground and 'washing' pots. Needless to say, most of the class prefer how school is nowadays! All classes have embraced this topic brilliantly and it has led to some wonderful story writing about going back in time!
Rowan Class lead Collective Worship
Last week, the fabulously talented Rowan Class led Collective Worship. They filmed a very exciting news report telling the story of The Hare and The Tortoise.
They then went on to talk about building confidence and resilience in each other and believing in yourself. They finished with some uplifting songs and musical performances, followed by a prayer.
A really exciting and fun Collective Worship from Rowan Class. Some brilliant editing skills used too!
Maple Class lead Collective Worship
Maple class led a beautiful Collective Worship last week. It was zoomed into everybody's classroom and was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
The children spoke confidently about "belonging" and what makes you feel that you belong. They then went on to talk about when you lose something, or feel lost before retelling the Parable of the Lost Coin.
Amazing speaking and acting in Maple Class! There are definitely some future performers amongst them!
WOW- so many birthdays to celebrate!
