ROTARY CONCERT

Last night the school was involved in the Rotary Concert at the Castle Theatre. Our children really showed values of:

  • Successful Learners
  • Confident Individuals
  • Responsible Citizens

A special thank you to our talented soloists and our narrators, I thought you were brilliant. It is so lovely to see so many children actively involved in the wider school community and fantastic that so many parents supported and cheered. How lovely that parents and children fro some of our Key Stage 1 classes came to join the audience and support the school.

LIBRARIANS  VISIT  TO 

WELLINGBOROUGH  LIBRARY   

 

Today the Student Librarians visited Wellingborough Library. We had a very interesting tour from Dee the Librarian. The tour involved looking round the baby and childrens area, Fiction and Non Fiction books, Dvds, Items for sale and the issue desks. The children had a chance to issue out their own books on the self service issuing machine. They also had a chance to put a trolley of books back on the shelves, obviously in the correct area, by checking the duey numbers on the side of the book. The children were let loose on their own display of books. Here are their beautiful displays.......................

           

 

At the end of the visit the Librarians were presented with a certificate, the visit was enjoyed by all and the children were filled with enthusiasm and ideas for their own library. Thank you to Dee for this wonderful visit!!!!

National Space Centre Trip 

 

In conjuction with the theme of 'Space'  the whole school went to visit the National Space Centre in Leicester. The National Space Centre is a museum and eduational resource covering the fields of space and astronomy.

The children had an amazing day experiencing the interative galleries and the 42m Rocket Tower. I think a fun day of learning was encountered by all.

All Saints Forest School

                                                                 

What is a Forest School? The aim of a Forest School is to assist and encourage children of all ages to develop their social, personal and emotional skills in a safe outdoor, natural environment. Many sessions are based in woodlands, but the ideas and activities can take place anywhere. Each session is guided by the children involved and will all be very different!

Research into the specific benefits of a Forest School Program (FSP) has shown that children of all ages have progressed amazingly in areas such as self confidence, self awareness of themselves and others, communication and concentration. Most lessons will take place outside, unless it is really unsafe to do so.

Everyone will need to be appropriately dressed in old clothes as we are likely to get muddy and they will need a waterproof coat and wellies or old shoes. To begin with we will be within the school grounds to build confidence and awareness of working and playing in a different environment and to get to know each other. The program will cover lots of different and interesting subjects such as shelter building, knots, wood and looking differently at what is around us. I am not going into too much detail so i dont spoil the surprise and excitement when each child tells of their adventures.

If you have any questions of concerns please do come and speak to me, I am very happy to help

The Learning Council

We held our first meeting as the Learning Council last week. This meeting was chaired by Mrs Griffiths as it was the first meeting but from now on it will either be our Head boy, Harry or Head Girl, Isabel that will lead the meetings.

Our review of 2016/17

We discussed lots of things that we really enjoyed form last year. We talked about themes and trips we thought had helped us be better learners. We really liked the food and farming trip and the ice theme. We think we did well because we got awards for RE and Sport and we had the church inspection (SIAMS) where we got Outstanding.

Next Meeting

In our next meeting we will be looking at maths in our school. We have invited Miss Cheetham, because she is the maths leads for the school, so we can ask her questions and tell her what our classes think of maths.

LIBRARY NEWS

The All Saints library is now fully catalogued and the duey system is now in place. I have spent the last few months reorganising the library in order to provide a more efficient and more enjoyable experience for the students of All Saints.

The Duey decimal system is a classification system used by librarians to arrange books via subject. Each book is issued a shelf mark number, usually found on the spine of the book and arranged in numerical order.

This system will enable students to find books alot easier, there is an A - Z catalogue situated in the library for pupils to use. I have placed bright and colourful labels and charts on the shelves to make finding a book more fun.

 Elections for Important Roles

Some of our children have been selected for important roles within the school. Our learning Council, run by our Head Boy Harry Gibson and Head Girl Izzy Clark supported by Mrs Griffiths, have been chosen. There are two children from each year group with the exception of Reception who regularly meet to look at the learning opportunities across the school and ensure that the Pupil Voice is represented.

Each class has also chosen their Class Ambassadors. These children, led by the lead Ambassadors Eithan Hemeng and Caitlyn Gledhill, have a very importants role in school. When we have visitors to they are the children that meet them and give them a tour of the room and an overview of the learning experience in their class. Our new Ambassadors will be trained by Eithan and Caitlyn.

Prefects have also been selected. This is a prestigious role that children are selected for by the Class Teachers. They are asked to set a fantastic example for our younger pupils in the school, by monitoring everyone as they move around the school. Those selected will be given a House Team tie and badge in our first celebration assembly of the year, next Friday. Our first prefects are:

 

 CURIE:        Sebastian Le Maistre-Wake and Urte Pukyte 

 NEWTON:   Shayla Haque and Caitlyn Gledhill

 EINSTEIN:   Mathew Landman and Marcel Maksymowski

 HAWKING:  Ellis Chapman and Alina Choudhury
