Dear Parents, We will be decorating the school with hanging snowflakes on Friday 1st December and so, this weekends’ home Learning includes the following task ……………...
We would like all children to make a hanging SNOWFLAKE using the differentiated instructions below.
Basic requirements for all snowflakes: size-no larger than 20cm in height; hanging thread/ribbon approx. 30cm. Any materials may be used must be light enough to hang from the ceiling.
*Nursery, Ash and Elm Classes: Hanging Decorated Snowflake Must include your child using a pair of scissors and some glue and be decorated. Could include your child using a paint brush and paints.
*Oak, Holly, Poplar and Chestnut Classes: Hanging 2D or 3D Decorated Snowflake Must be your child’s own idea and must include your child using a pair of scissors accurately and using glue carefully. Could include accurate measurements and accurate folding, different fixings.
*Larch, Hazel, Maple, Willow, Hawthorn and Beech Classes Hanging 2D or 3D Decorated Snowflake Must include accurate measurement and folding, accurate cutting, use of appropriate fixings. Could include origami, sewing, or other craft skills.
As far as possible, this should be your children’s own work, but your advice and support would be most welcome. We hope you will enjoy learning together. Children need to bring their finished decoration in to their classroom on Thursday 30th November, please.
Thank you. Have fun!

Crazy Sock Day Tuesday 19th December 2017
Dear parents and carers,
To encourage and celebrate a love of reading, Key Stage 1 and Reception will be joining KS2 in holding a crazy sock day. This day is for all children who have read 50 times (25 times for Ash and Elm) and recorded this in their green reading record. Your class teacher will count books brought home from school. You do not need to do anything differently just continue to listen to your child read (in Reception this may be sharing a book) and continue to record this in the green home reading record book.
Crazy sock day will be held on Tuesday 19th December 2017. If your child has read 50 times or in Ash and Elm 25 times, by Tuesday 19th December, then they can come to school wearing some crazy socks along with their school uniform.
If you have any questions please contact Miss Hayter or Mrs Collingwood.
Thank you for your help in this.

Can you help our school ASBSA effortlessly raise 600 pounds?
Can you help our school ASBSA effortlessly raise £600?
Leaders estate agents have agreed to be a sponsor for our All Saints Christmas Fair.
To make this possible they are looking for a minimum of 40 people willing to have a board placed outside their home for 2 weeks and they will pay £15 per board placed outside willing homes. We could raise £600.
Time is against us, as they need addresses by 25th October.
If you are willing to help us raise money with little effort, please email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we can get at least 5 people per class, this great opportunity will be possible.
Let's make this happen. £600 can go for a very long way in helping the school provide for our children.
Y5 are all having a good day. The children have done low ropes, high ropes, archery and abseiling. All smiling and having fun :)
