Lord Wrottesley Award 2017
Huge congratulations to Indiana Robertson-Brooks for being awarded the Lord Wrottesley prize 2017. The award is given to a year 6 pupil for their outstanding contributions to All Saints’ School and is voted for by the children and the staff. Well done Indi on an outstanding time at All Saints’ School.
Year 6 Business Fair
During the summer term, the children in year 6 worked in groups of four or five to come up with a business venture of their own, which could be marketed to the rest of the school. They conducted market research in order to find out which products or activities would appeal most, thus making them the most profit. Once they had decided, they pitched their ideas to a local businessperson who provided each group with a small amount of money to start their business ventures. They all worked hard in preparing for the business fair, which was held in July 2017. One group made dream catchers; one made keyrings; one sold sweets and drinks and one group held a fidget-spinner competition.
Each class was able to visit the stalls to buy the products and every game made a huge profit. Well done to all the children in year 6. We wish you well as you move onto your new schools in September.
Huge congratulations to our Key Stage 2 children for their fantastic performances in the production of Hoodwinked. The acting and singing were superb and the audiences loved every minute of it. Well done to our year 5 and 6 actors, particularly Caelan, Toby, Bronte and Max who all stood up and sang solos. A fantastic achievement from all. Well done.
A huge thank you to everyone who came along and supported our sports day this week. I’m sure you’ll agree that it was a great success. The children were absolute stars and showed real perseverance and sportsmanship. Thank you to the year 6 boys who helped out during each race, collecting and distributing the equipment and supporting the younger children.
A special thank you to the parent helpers for your support in helping set up, run the refreshments stall and helping clear away at the end, particularly Louise Hart, Tracey Fletcher and Antony Cleaver.
New Reception Children’s Phonics Workshop & Lunch
Year 5 & 6 Residential to Laches Wood, Coven
We had a fantastic week at Laches Wood. The children were superstars and have enjoyed a week they’ll never forget. The activities we took part in included canoeing, climbing, bouldering, caving, archery, camp-fire, pond-dipping, seek and solve, gladiator challenge and free fall. On Tuesday we spent the day on Cannock Chase and saw deer, had a stone skimming competition and played secret squirrel! A wonderful week.
A big thank you to Miss Walker and Mrs Dudgon for giving up their week and being away from family.
Cross Country Finals
Well done to the children who participated in the cross country finals at Penkridge Middle School – Isabella Hart, Macy Gutteridge, Emily Wright, Daisy Banbery, Caelan Thomson, Toby Southall, Indiana Robertson-Brooks and Jamie Onions. They all ran well and were a credit to All Saints’. A special well done to the girls who qualified for the next round, in particularly Isabella who came 2nd overall – a fantastic achievement.

They won each of their games and got through to the finals in which they played against St Bernadettes. It was a nail-biting match and they faced tough compeition. But they didn’t give up, supported each other and were well derserving of their 1-0 win.
