Science Matters

 

We were pleased to welcome two science roadshows to the school recently. BAE Systems came and performed experiments looking at the different features of light and sound. The second visit was from a range of animals, from cockroaches to chinchillas, when we were able to learn interesting facts and some of the children had a go at handling the animals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rowing to Success

Some year 6 boys and girls competed in an indoor rowing competition that took place at Campion School. They competed against other schools in the area, rowing on indoor rowing machines that were connected to a computer. They all raced individually before then competing as a team of girls and a team of boys in a relay. They all thoroughly enjoyed themselves with the boys team coming second.

 

 

Baked With Love

 

The Friends of All Saints' organised a special Valentine's Bake-off which took place on Friday 12th February. Children were invited to bake at home and all classes also created entries in school. As you can see from the photos the creative outcomes were incredible. The Mayor of Warwick was invited to judge the competition, with a tasting of the short-listed cakes completed in a special assembly watched by all of the children. At the end of the day the cakes were sold to raise funds. It was a great event, enjoyed by all.

Happy Chinese New Year

 

To celebrate Chinese New Year (which takes place on 8th February this year) all of the children enjoyed a special assembly. They were told a story by Master Dan and then saw it performed as a Lion Dance. Afterwards year 3 children took part in workshops where they learned how to perform some of the moves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kids' Marathon

 

This year All Saints’ children will have the opportunity to participate in the Kids’ Marathon Project, an innovative project from the charity Kids Run Free.

The concept is simple – pupils are given the opportunity to complete a full marathon (42.2km) over the duration of the school year by running laps of a measured course. The idea is that children have the chance to make a healthy choice by choosing to run and participate in extra physical activity to that provided during normal PE lessons. All pupils that participate in the Kids’ Marathon will receive a certificate stating the distance achieved at the end of the programme, and those that the complete the full marathon distance will also receive a medal.

This was launched in school on Monday 11th January with a special assembly. Afterwards every child in school participated in their first run, with the number of laps counted and going towards their aim of a full marathon. The children were all very excited to take part together and were really proud of their achievements.

 

 

 

Choir Makes Itself Heard

 

 

All Saints Voices and Emscote Voices took part in one of the largest school choir concerts in the world at the Genting Arena in Birmingham recently. The Federation choir had a wonderful time participating in the massive Young Voices concert, enjoying the arena experience singing with a full live band, backing singers and an internationally-acclaimed director.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We Shall Remember Them

 

A year 3 class led a special assembly on 11th November, themed Remembering and Rememberance, during which the whole school observed a two-minute silence at 11.00am to commemorate those who have lost their lives in war. Pupils were encouraged to attend school that day in the uniforms of their scouting and guiding organisations. The assembly was even more special as Sam in year 6 played the Last Post on his cornet.

Working Together for the Greater Good

 

The Send My Friend to School campaign is this year asking young people to ‘step into the shoes of world leaders’ and tell their local MPs how they would deliver a better future for the world’s children. The pupils at All Saints’ have been learning about the barriers to education for millions of children in the developing world. It was fantastic to see how much they enjoyed stepping into the shoes of world leaders and trying to make a difference for children that don’t have the opportunities they have. They have 3D figures of themselves as world leaders and covered them with “If I were a world leader..” messages to tell politicians what needs to be done to obtain education for every single child worldwide. The children also wrote a persuasive letter to Chris White, MP asking him to take action. On 10th July, Chris White came into school to answer questions from the children about the campaign and he was presented with all of the letters to deliver to No 10 Downing Street.

Throwing Our Doors Open

 

We were delighted to welcome some special visitors to the school for the official opening of our new building: the Bishop of Coventry; Linda Wainscott, the Director of Education for the DBE (Diocesan Board of Education); the Mayor of Warwick and some of our governors. The bishop led an assembly in the hall for all the children, explaining the meaning of the robes he wears and also talking about the importance of us being an ICON (International Cross of Nails) school. The mayor cut a ribbon to mark the official opening, and the bishop then blessed the school and all the children and staff. A special cake was cut by Linda Wainscott.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Book Worms

 

Once again children at All Saints' took part in the Warwickshire Junior Book Award. The children thoroughly enjoying reading the new books, voted for their favourites in June and attended the award ceremony in July. All four short-listed authors attended and talked to the children about their inspiration and answered questions about their books. The winning author was Ali Sparkes, who wrote Destination Earth. This had been the favourite choice of the All Saints' children. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the morning which included an opportunity to have books signed for the school library.

Shape Of Things To Come

 

The start of the term saw the beginning of building work to extend and improve facilities at the school. Two classrooms, cloakrooms and group work areas are being built on to the back of the school, and a covered walkway is also being constructed to join the year 5 and 6 corridor with the currently separate unit. Work is expected to continue until May next year. You can view plans and photographs of the project on a display in the foyer, or click here for a plan drawing.

 

Here are some pictures of the work starting.
