Year 4 Girls Football

Year 4 Girls attend training with LFC coaches for girls football week!

Year 4 girls braved the cold this afternoon to shine up their boots for a morning of football training with some of LFC’s coaches for Girl’s Football Week. The girls learned about reaction time and learned some cool new ball handling skills that they can use when they play in matches at school. It was a great session and everyone enjoyed celebrating girls in sport!

All Saints Day

Today we celebrated our Parish Feast Day of All Saints with Mass in the school hall followed by a special lunch. Father Steven reminded us that the origin of Halloween is the Evening before All Saints Day and is about remembering our family, friends and all the Saints who have gone before us to Heaven.

New Look Entrance

Welcome to our new look entrance at All Saints.  As you can see from the photographs. work is well underway on the beautiful artwork at the entrance  which depicts the gospel values of the school.

These stunning mosaics were created by our artist-in-residence Mrs Thompson who also ensured that every child in school in school had a chance to contribute to the artwork by laying some of the mosaics under her patient direction – no mean feat in such a large school!

The next phase of the project will see each year group completing a piece of a giant jigsaw.  Each piece will feature a word, again in mosaics, relating to the school’s gospel values and the children will design the background to reflect the word they are using.

In the meantime, a big thank you to Mrs Thompson and  Miss Thomson who has also been working hard on this initiative.

 


1D Homework

1D have been learning about the environment and the houses they live in.  They have been writing about their journey to school and the things they have met and seen along the way.  As part of their project they have made maps and models of houses, buildings, football grounds and even Stanley Park!  The effort they have made has been outstanding and all the children have produced some really imaginative work!  Well done Year 1!!

Colomendy Update

Mrs Hartley went to visit Year 6 in Colomendy yesterday afternoon. They are all well and enjoying themselves. It is a bit muddy following the rain in recent weeks but not cold. So far the children have tried out lots of new activities such as building a raft, then sailing on it, building a buggy and racing it, testing their nerve on the 3G swing. They are developing their teamwork skills making new and stronger friendship bonds as they work together and support each other. Yesterday, I saw some incredible strength of character in our pupils as they faced their fears on the climbing and abseiling walls. What a sense of achievement they felt! A good breakfast sets them up for the day, followed up with hot meals for lunch and dinner to keep their energy levels high. Today is their last full day of activities and they are excited about the disco this evening.

We expect to see them back at school at 2 o’clock tomorrow (Friday).

Year 6 Colomendy Trip

Year 6 set off for their residential visit to Colomendy this morning. Weather forecast for Mold is mixed for the week but not cold. I am sure they will have lots of fun trying out all of the adventurous activities on their program and we look forward to hearing all about it on Friday. Parents please be patient, there is very limited mobile phone coverage and internet access so we will update you when the messages get through – carrier pigeons might be quicker though!


PE

We have had several phonecalls this week relating to ‘WOW Wednesday’ and the wearing of tracksuits.  Just to clarify, tracksuits will no longer be worn on Wednesdays. Children should come to school in their school uniform each day and change into their PE kit on the day their PE lessons take place.

Along with the newsletter this week we will be sending home another sheet with the PE timetable printed on one side so that you can see which day(s) your child will require their PE Kit, and the timetable for the after-school sports clubs on the other side.  You can also find the timetables posted on the Parentzone pages of this website.  As soon as it is available, we will also post a timetable for all other after-school clubs.
