Our latest school news

11th April, 2019

The end of our Lent term is nearly here, tomorrow the children will be taking part in various Easter themed activities during the day. We hope that you all have a lovely Easter break.

 

As mentioned in a recent newsletter Head Lice is still an issue in school. We asked that you check your child’s hair after school on the 12th April and if you find anything it can be treated and checked that they have gone before returning to school.  Your child should come home with a leaflet on Friday but below are some useful links for you –

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.

Egg hunt time for Classes 2 and 4

It was the turn of Class 2 and 4 to go on an Easter hunt. Lots of eggs were hidden on the field and they had a great time looking for them. They were so good they didn’t leave any for the teachers either!!

Could these be a winning hat

Here are the Easter hats made by some of Class 2. Wow they look really good, is there a winner here?

Mapquest

Class 2 spent the afternoon in Manor Park taking part in a Mapquest competition with other local schools in the area.

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and once the competition had ended the children were rewarded with ice pops.

The children from all the schools were split into small teams, and we are extremely proud that one of our teams came third.

Well done to all the children and also thank you to the staff and parents that went with the children to help out.

Chaplaincy team surprise

Our Chaplaincy team leader surprised the Chaplaincy team this lunchtime with Easter Eggs for all their hard work.  Thank you Mrs King for everything you do.

What are Class 2 wearing?

Class 2 came to school today in their pyjamas, they looked fabulous.  Looks like they had a nap at lunchtime as well!! Looking good Class 2.

 

The wheel moves on

The St. Ralph Sherwin wheel was taken by pupils from St. Margaret’s to its next school which is St. Mary’s in Glossop. There was a lovely assembly which our pupils enjoyed.

Easter Garden

Our Easter garden has been set up in Reception and looks amazing, thank you to Mrs Hill, one of our volunteers, for setting it all up.  The children in Class 3 will be making their own gardens next week.

And even more!!
