Values Activity Week

The week has begun successfully with all the children and staff enjoying a day of Bollywood Dancing with Kalpesh. It was a great experience and so lovely to see all the smiling faces of the children. We ended the day with a whole school performance on the playground with the parents as our audience.

The children are now experiencing 15 different activities based on our school values. Each day they are rotating through five sessions based inside and outside of the school. I’m sure there will be more photos posted in the week so you are able to see what we have all been up to.

Thank you for all the amazing plants for Mrs Budgett’s activity, Creativity. We are creating beautiful space for all the veg, strawberry plants, herbs and plants you so kindly sent in.

School Clothing Bank

One of our themes for Values Week is ‘Community’ and at All Saints we are fortunate to have a community clothing bank that raises vital funds for our school and the Salvation Army and also reduces waste going to landfill.

During the community session, each child will be given a Recycle With Michael bag to bring home that can be filled with any unwanted clothes or shoes and then returned to All Saints on any day the school is open.

If your child comes to school by bus, to save you making a special journey to school, Richards have kindly agreed to transport the bags on the morning school run. A member of staff will be available when the buses arrive at school to take any filled bags.

Getting ‘sticky’ with sticks!!!

Have you ever thought about how wonderful sticks are? They are a fantastic way to encourage children to engage with nature, be creative and use their imaginations!

The children in Years 3 and 4 have been amazing this week, embracing all of the above!

We watched Stick Man on Wednesday which got us thinking ……….we then went on a nature hunt and collected sticks, leaves, grass, stones, blossom and anything else that was available to us on the ground! We went on and made stick men/ladies/animals and families.

On Thursday we read Stanley’s Stick and Not a Stick. The art that followed was truly amazing and children have demonstrated what ‘fantaSTICK’ imaginations they have.

We created pictures where a stick became something else entirely e.g. It’s not a stick, it’s a ……fishing rod!

We also made larger sticks into objects and posed with them!

It has all been a lot of fun and very inspiring!!
