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!

        

        

 

 

 

 

Thinktank

Today is Wednesday and this morning  year 6 were eager to embark the coach which was taking them to the Thinktank in Birmingham! On arrival, our eyes couldn’t take in all of the exciting and brightly coloured gadgets displayed and floors, walls and ceilings! Before even entering any ‘zones’ we knew it was an exciting place to be where we could press buttons, pull levers, laugh, discuss and . . . have fun while learning!

From talking robots and steam engines through to energetic dance routines and a heat sensor TV, we explored nearly all of the 200 hands-on displays on science and technology and even had the time to take part in a workshop, ‘Under Your Skin’ !

Come and ask us about our exciting day and we’ll be sure to amaze you with how much we have learnt!

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.

 

 

Year 6 Explore the Heart!

Year 6 have been learning about the circulatory system, and as we are nearing the end of our studying on this topic, we are beginning to realize that this system is one of the most important systems in the body! To help us understand the whole process a little better we looked at a real heart and imagined the other parts of the system playing their role as they delivered oxygen. Even though we all own a circulatory system, we never get to see it working inside out bodies. However, year 6 came up with some fantastic ways of comparing this process to processes we are familiar with. They spoke about the system being a bit like a ‘one-way traffic system’ and spoke of how the blood ‘surges through veins and arteries like a fast flowing river’. If you would like to know more about how your circulatory system works, come and ask us ! We’re fast becoming experts!
