As mentioned in a recent newsletter Head Lice is still an issue in school.

There was an article on the BBC news this morning regarding air pollution outside schools, where cars are left with the engine running.  We have received complaints that this is happening outside All Saints.  As you are aware we have asked frequently for vehicles not to park outside school, however if you do need to park outside please could you ensure that you switch your engine off.

Welcome back we hope you all had a good break, it was nice to see the children back in school this morning.

A newsletter has gone out today, but in addition we thought the below might be useful to you as we are aware there has become concern over a site called ‘the momo challenge’  the below link will give you a 3 minute briefing on it.

Please be aware of the following –

YouTube requires account holders to be 18, but a 13-year-old can sign up with a parent’s permission. 


As of May 2018, WhatsApp’s minimum age of use is 16 years old if you live in the European Union, or a country that has adopted the GDPR, as the UK has. It was previously 13. 

Keep a look out on here for updates.

5th February, 2019

Today is safer Internet day. We are aware that a lot of children use various sites so we thought we would put some information on to assist you. Please be aware of the various age limits for these sites. Also there is some great advice for parents and various age groups on the UK safety Internet organisation website. Stay safe.

Sunday 9.30am– St Mary’s

Sunday 11.00am– All Saints



This weeks focus

As Sunday was the Feast of Christ the King, this week’s focus for Collective Worship in Class Two was  ‘What sort of a king was Jesus?’   The children had fantastic ideas about the type of king Jesus was.  We also thought about and wrote ideas on crowns with ‘How could we be more like Jesus this week?’ written on them.   What colour do you think the cloths and the priest’s vestments will be next week when the season of Advent begins?

St Margaret


The children from class 2 have produced some lovely work for the St Margaret board


Writing letters

In Class Two, we are learning how to write letters.  Here we are ,working in pairs, reading a variety of letters.  We concentrated really hard to find all of the features that letters have.  It won’t be long until we will be writing special letters to a very kind man!

The Feast of Saint Margaret of Scotland

The Feast of Saint Margaret of Scotland is celebrated every year on the 16th November.  Class 1 and 2 had a lovely day working together to learn about and celebrate our school’s patron saint. We had shortbread and juice together at snack time and then we made stained glass windows and a big drawing of Saint Margaret.  On the display we made you can also see the thistles we made, which are the national emblem of Scotland.
The children agreed that Saint Margaret was a very special lady who made God very happy by remembering to pray, by building churches but most of for all that she did to help the poor.  We thought about ways in which we could try to be like Saint Margaret.

Class 2 Trip to Manor Park

Class 2 had an amazing time at Manor park this week.  We used our map reading skills to find different areas of the park.  We also had a lovely treat from Greggs and an enjoyable play in the park.

Story writing

Class 2 will focus on story writing for the next three weeks in class. To help with this we are reading a lovely book called ‘The Velveteen Rabbit’. Today we looked at a variety of toys and discussed which were our favourite ones in school and at home. Then we got to feel swatches of velveteen and satin.  We thought of lots of adjectives to describe how they felt.


Class 2 enjoyed learning using the new Chromebooks today in class.

Learning about Glossop and our local area

It’s been absolutely lovely to have all the children in class 2 back in the classroom. For our topic, have been learning about Glossop and our local area. All the children are working super hard, particularly on their writing skills. I’m very proud of the amazing start to the year they have already made and hope it continues throughout the year.

The Beach Party!!!
