Year 6 News Article

News from All Saints Primary School, Bishops Caundle

It’s the start of a new term at All Saints, and we’ve already been very busy.

First of all, the new reception children have settled in to their first year at our school. To help them feel welcome the Year 6 children have been their buddies, helping them get ready at lunchtimes, playing with them at playtimes, rocket building and supporting them on the play equipment. 

At the start of the school term, Sainsburys were kind enough to donate some packets of poppy seeds. Children in Key Stage 2 went outside planting the Poppy seeds in the field. This is significant because Ruby and Sapphire classes are all learning about World War 2 this term and poppies are a symbol of remembrance.

Soon in Yeovil, there is going to be a Literary Festival and Sapphires Class have been lucky enough to get tickets to listen to Cressida Cowell, (the author of ‘How to train your Dragon’) talking about her life and what it’s like to be an author. After that, Cressida Cowell will be doing a book signing.  The children (and staff) are all really excited about this opportunity!

Children across the school will be experiencing lots of exciting learning this half term, including visits from our local super heroes, forest schools, cooking, a harvest welly walk and lots more.  No one can deny that this half term is surely going to be a good one!
