On Thursday 15th we were treated to a performance by children who learn an instrument in school. Mrs Young led her Violinists, Mrs Lawrie led her Cellists and Mrs Sagoo led her Dhol Drummers ‘All Saints Dhol Saints’
What a talented bunch! Children played along with their teachers to demonstrate their skills and talent. Showing great confidence playing to a crowded hall including their classmates, teachers and parents. Children also played well together and were so in sync.
We are so proud of you all and we are looking forward to your next performance.
Thank you and well done!
On Wednesday 7th February we were treated to a performance by our very own After School Club, school rock band! The Band includes children from years 4-6 playing a variety of instruments from Acoustic Guitars to keyboard and electric drums. There are also singers who take to the microphone in solo and duet performances.
It was clear to the audience that the band have worked extremely hard and made fantastic progress in their after school club this term as their performance was outstanding. A real treat for everyone to see their class mates so confident, talented and working together as one unit.
Well done Rock Band! We look forward to your next performance.
Firstly can we say well done to all the children who achieved 100% attendance this term and were awarded their bronze badge for Autumn. You thoroughly deserved your 100% day to celebrate together.
Children enjoyed a magic show from Mr Custard who had everyone giggling, surprised and confused at times with his wonderful tricks. We even had some participants join him on stage for balloon modelling. Don’t they look wonderful in their new hats!
We also had fun getting creative with Christmas Crafts and tested our knowledge of Christmas with a team quiz. You certainly know your stuff!
To end the day we gathered together in the hall to watch a Christmas film with popcorn too!
Well done Everyone! Good Luck for Spring term!
Children enjoyed meeting Zea the guide dog and Allan during assembly. Children were able to ask questions and find out all about guide dogs. They also got to meet Zea in their classrooms following the assembly. Allan was vey impressed by the children’s sensible behaviour and good questioning.

World Book Day Reading Challenge 1
World Book Day, which we celebrated across the whole week, was hugely successful at All Saints!
We packed our week with inspiration, competitions, workshops and creative lessons to help celebrate our love for books and reading.
This is the 20th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 2nd March 2017 children from nursery to year 6 came together to appreciate reading – very excitedly and very happily!
The main aim of World Book Day was to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading. Therefore children took part in lots of book related competitions; we dressed up as our favourite characters (yes, even the staff!); we encouraged our families to come into school to read with us; we took part in a book swap; held workshops for our parents and even wrote an All Saints story!
Mental Health and Wellbeing Week
All Saints Primary School are supporting mental health and wellbeing week. We believe that the emotional well-being of our young people is just as important as their academic ability and by knowing how to manage their feelings and emotions will support them in getting the best out of their lives. We all know that from time to time we have to deal with difficult situations, disappointment and face problems and we at All Saints have always been committed to supporting our children, staff and families in this. We are proud of the partnership we have with families and the good relationships we have between staff and children. Managing emotions, knowing how to relax and feel good, having skills to self-regulate, building relationships and connecting with the world are all tools we should aim to have.
This week we are giving our children, families and staff the opportunity to ‘try out’ some of these activities and give some dedicated time to think about our well-being. Week beginning 6th-10th February is a chance to have ‘taster sessions’ in activities and locally available initiatives. There will be activities in school for the children to take part in to dedicate time to their emotional, health and physical well-being. Please get involved, support us and come along to the ‘market hall’ event on Thursday 9th February and other free sessions including relaxation, yoga, Smoothie Bike and Move with Peppa.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our E-Safety competition. We had so many wonderful entries which showcased pupils creativity, talent, confidence and above all knowledge and understanding of the importance E Safety. We can all learn and be reminded of the importance of being safe when we are online by reading, listening to and enjoying our pupils entries below. Well done E-Safety ambassadors!

All Saints School are top of the leader board. Thank you to everybody that took part.
On Friday 13th November, all the children in All Saints took part in fundraising for Children in Need. Coming dressed as a superhero or in non-uniform, donations were made to help support this fantastic event. During the afternoon, children from Years 1-6 also took part in a World Record Breaking attempt – the World’s largest lesson, with £1 being donated for every child taking part by the School Advisory Service.
Earlier this term, we also held a very successful coffee morning for Macmillan. We had lots of donations of cakes which the children…and adults really enjoyed! Lots of money was raised for charity through generous donations and purchases.
As you may all remember, last summer our children made poppies, using different
art forms, to commemorate the centenary of the First World War and last week we
were very lucky to have worked with such a talented artist from outside of our
school to create our art piece! ! Our original vision of having an outdoor
installation would have meant that our art of remembrance would have only been a
temporary structure due to the durability of the material. Therefore,
collectively, we decided on a cross that will be shared as an indoor art piece
within the local community as a tribute to our service men and women. How
fantastic does it look!
