BLETCHLEY  PARK

 

 

Today our KS2 children visited Bletchley Park near Milton Keynes, Bletchley Park is a nineteenth century mansion & estate, it was once the top secret home of the World war two code breakers and is also the birthplace of modern computing and has helped shape life as we know it today. Our children enjoyed a very informative day looking around this heritage site from the restored codebreaking huts with their WW2 ambience, the atmospheric soundscapes,galleries, exhibitions and of course the museum.

  REMEMBRANCE  DAY 

 

All of this week as part of our "Conflict" theme the children across the school have been focussing on the 100 year anniversary of the First World War and have created a display of poppy artwork along the long corridor. This is such an important time of year not just to remember those who represented our country during the First and Second World War but also those currently affected as a result of serving in the armed forces. We are awaiting an extra addition to our fabulous display by the entrance gate so keep your eyes peeled for that. A big thank you to the staff involved also with the Poppy work a brilliant example of teamwork.

Thank you to all of those who have donated bottles for our display. Maple class have been busy this afternoon starting to turn them into poppies. 

 

           

          

 

Our Head boy & girl are selling on behalf of the British legion poppies & other merchandise. Last year we raised nearly £300 for the charity and would like to match that this year with your support. 

Meera and Sidd are around on the playground at the start and end of the school day daily for you to donate!

Student Librarian visit to Wellingborough library

 

Today the student librarians visited Wellingborough library, Owen, Amelia, Zuzanna and myself and a lovely tour from Dee the librarian, the tour involved looking at books with large prints, fiction, non fiction, children and teenage sections, we even witnessed a couple getting married. The children learned how books are issued out, renewed and returned, they had the chance to issue their own books out on the self service issue machine.

If you are interested in your child joining Wellingborough library then please Click Here  for a letter. This must be filled in and returned to Wellingborough library.

 

 

The children also did their very own Christmas display of books with headings designed by them selves.

At the end of the visit the children enjoyed a tour of the upstairs with a well earned drink and biscuit they were even allowed to come down the spiral staircase!!! Dee presented them with a badge each. We all left full of enthusiasm for our own library......

Christmas display here we come!!! 

 

 

Thank you Dee for a wonderful visit!!!

 

Message from Dee:

We are holding our Christmas Fair at the library on:

SUMMER  READING  CHALLENGE

 

Another really proud and exciting moment this week was being awarded the trophy from Wellingborough Library for the highest number of finishers in the Summer reading challenge. 18 schools from across the area participate in this and this is the first time we have been successful. A huge well done to those children and families for taking the time to participate, a brilliant achievement. We received a letter with the trophy congratulating us saying:

 

 

"Good reading skills are so important for all of you because it is through reading and hard work and learning that you will grow up to be the best that you can be. This is why the Friends of Wellingborough Library wanted to congratulate you and mark your achievement"

Such a lovely morning yesterday at our Harvest celebrations. Thank you to all of those parents who joined us and also to those who donated to a great cause!!

THANK YOU!!

 

Thank you so much for all of the delicious cakes you donated on Wednesday for the Macmillan coffee morning and to celebrate the opening of our Forest Den. 

We raised a fantastic £213.27!!!

A big thank you to members of the Learning Council for working alongside Mrs Boddington in organising and running this fabulous event. Some of you may remember Mrs Boddington applying to Tescos for funding for the den last year and we were successful in receiving a large pot of money by shoppers at Tescos placing the blue coins in the box. Father Tony gave the building a blessing and I had the pleasure of cutting the ribbon albeit with a rather blunt pair of scissors.

PETERBOROUGH  CATHEDRAL  TRIP

 

This week we saw a group of our choir perform at Peterborough Cathedral in front of hundreds of other children and staff from church Schools across the Diocese. Along with All Saints from Northampton we were the only Primary School asked to contribute to this great honour. The children were brilliant and I was extremely proud of each and every one of them. They all showed our three values of confident individuals, responsible citizens and successful learners in abundance. What incredible representatives of the school they were!!

DAILY  MILE

 

Next week we will be starting our Daily Mile programme. At All Saints we strongly believe in the benefits of exercise in children and there is no better or easier way to exercise than running. That is why every morning we will be opening the gates from 8.20am - 8.45am to allow you and your child to access the background and either run, jog or walk (or 10.-15 mins if you prefer!)

This little bit of exercise will benefit your child immensely by:

  • Improving their fitness and strength
  • Improving their ability to learn
  • Improving their mood
  • Helping to maintain a healthy weight
  • Burning off their excess energy
  • and many more!

We would love to see as many of you there as possible (adults too!) and the children can also earn Dojo points towards their Golden Time just for taking part.

This is a faboulous opportunity for us to embed a brilliant habit of daily exercise that  your child will carry out throughout their life.

The programme will run every day, all year. No need to book,  just turn up!

Parents must stay with their children.
