World Book Day

 

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.

Stone Age Phase 3

In Phase 3 this term we have been learning all about the Stone Age –  a time in history when early humans used tools and weapons made out of stone! It lasted for 3.4 million years ending with the introduction of metal tools! Today we came together as phase and took part in lots of exciting lessons including:

  •  Weaving with Miss Tonks and Mrs Sagoo. Weaving is the textile art in which different sets of threads are used and  are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth.
  • With Mrs Beardmore and Miss Maneer we created clay pots using  techniques like coiling, scoring and using slip to stick it all together.
  • With Mr Seex and Mrs Subaru we were transport back to the Stone Age using the Green Screen – we stood next to Stonehenge, woolly mammoths and sat huddled around fires!
  • With Miss Badger and Miss Donelly with looked at the projects that we created as part of our home learning projects, handled artefacts and created Stone Age tools!

Ingestre Hall – Day 4

We have had an exceptional day so far. We have been busy putting together the final pieces of our performances and exhibitions so that we could share it to the whole group and staff. We have just finished watching a totally amazing piece of theatre that the drama group produced. It was professional and they were confident and convincing. It was exceptional. The dancers were so professional and a thrill to watch their epic dance piece. The artists have produced such a range of different final pieces and shown the techniques and processes they have used. Finally, our confident and talented music group have produced a CD and also performed a live concert on stage with lights and full enthusiastic audience. They were so brave and we are exceptionally proud of all of the children. We are just having dinner and then it’s up to dorms for showers and to get ready for our disco night! We will see you all back at school tomorrow and look forward to sharing our stories with you.
See you soon, the children, Mrs Beech, Miss Whistance, Mrs Beardmore and Miss Badger

Latest from Ingestre Hall

After our visit to Ingestre Hall’s own 3D cinema last night we slept great and so all going well here. We are almost finishing our sessions for the day: we have been busy- dancers have been working hard to piece together and practice their performance of their time travel dance. The art group have been using oil pastels, printing and have shared with the rest of us some amazing time machine models. The drama group have been practising in the studio their piece set in a museum where they travel and explore different times in History through their time machine. Some of our musicians are so engrossed that they have even been composing their songs and practising in free time too. We all also got to interview a real life artist today and update our diaries too.

We had a lovely lunch of lasagne and garlic bread earlier- we are being very well looked after and are all full! For free time today some of us played games indoors, table tennis and table football whereas some of us went outside to explore the grounds and play hide and seek!

After dinner tonight we are off to the tuck shop and souvenir shop and we will also get chance to visit an exhibition that is on in Ingestre Hall. Later we have all voted to head back to the 3D cinema because it was so cool last night!

Must dash- dinner bell is ringing…mmm!

More updates tomorrow from all of the children and teachers at Ingestre Hall.INGESTRE 1 2016INGESTRE 3 2016
