Year 6 ‘Residential Trip’…

Year 6 should have been going on their residential trip this week: 18th – 22nd May.

The teachers in year 6 wanted to give the children some activities that might help make them feel better about not being away and here are some of their efforts; of which include: climbing trees, den making, creating games and scavenger hunts!

 

School may be shut but the learning at All Saints hasn’t stopped...

All pupils went home with learning packs full of worksheets, suggested timetables, links to learning and plenty of creative ideas.  Children have been busy with their pencils but also their paintbrushes, trowels and mixers.

Headteacher Tracey Stanton said ‘all our staff did an incredible job creating the packs, which covered the breadth of our    curriculum.  Everyone pulled together to ensure they reached all our children, including those who were already in self-isolation.  We know it’s a huge change for our children and parents and we wanted to makes sure we are supporting the   children’s learning and wellbeing at this very challenging time’.

 If the school has to remain closed after Easter, learning will switch online, using the Microsoft teams platform, and pupils are already using this to ask questions to their teachers, and to support each other.  Year 6 have recently been set some extra PE and Years 3 and 4 are getting class rewards for work completed.

 Assistant Head Nicola Dawson said ‘the well-being of our school family is so important to us, and this seemed a great way to be able to give children the continuity they need to be able to keep learning and feel connected’.

 Parent Laura Keey said “Everything is really comprehensive, perfectly pitched and keeping the children occupied for the right amount of time each day - absolutely fabulous whilst we both also try to work from home”.

 

 

'Stories for Breakfast' on World Book Day - Thursday 5th March

More families than ever before came in to school early to listen to a story read aloud by a member of staff. Once again, there was an amazing range of book character costumes worn by both children and adults. A selection of photographs are below

 

Ground Force Day - 12 January 2020

A massive thank you to everyone who helped. It was good to see some new faces and some regulars. Many hands do make light(er) work! We did a great job removing an overgrown hedge... Next GF day will be 1st March.

Skipping

On Wednesday 8th January all of KS2 participated in workshops run by Chris from ‘Dan the Skipping Man’. In the sessions children learnt how to control the skipping rope, perform a jump and more complex moves such as the pretzel. Children have now been given the challenge to try and improve their skipping skills at lunchtimes and break times as well as in their P.E lessons. Children were even inspired to buy their own skipping ropes on the day and continue to practise at home and at school. We have many more fun P.E workshops coming up this term and next term, which we hope the children will enjoy just as much as they enjoyed the skipping.

All Saints Christmas Church Service

We held our Christmas Service at All Saints Church on Wednesday 18th December. The singing was amazing as usual and included our favourites – Midnight and Ding Dong, as well as the traditional Silent Night, sung in English, French and German.  

The children read aloud the Christmas story in their own words, from the point of view of Mary, the star, the shepherds and the three kings. If you would like to read their words, please go to the class pages.

Christmas Fair

On Friday 6th December, the PTA organised our Christmas Fair. This was an opportunity for the children to buy Christmas presents for their families, win prizes and have fun. Our Y6 children took their Reception ‘buddies’ shopping and helped them to count out their pennies. We are always so proud of how caring our children are towards each other.

We collected lots of food for the Wokingham Foodbank. The children had fun in our competition to see which class had the longest line of food. This was a great exercise for Year 6 children to practise their maths skills. They had to measure the foodline and divide the number by the number of children in the class. Poland class won the longest line!

Project Acorn started in September 2018 with the idea of building a simple outdoor classroom. One year later after some extremely hard work from our school family and unbelievable generosity from local businesses, donating building resources, we have the most amazing outdoor learning area - an accessible garden, pond, fountain, vegetable garden and outdoor classroom for all our children to enjoy.
