I love enterprise projects like this. In fact, the whole of Key Stage 2 will be making profit from their starter £5 this week. Today, from the Y4s, I bought a “Memory Box”, a friendship bracelet, I pre-ordered a personalised key ring and paid to play darts. I scored 37 (with 3 darts) and stayed in the lead until a Y5 girl knocked me off the top spot.
Well done Y4 for kicking this whole thing off. I’ll look forward to see how you get on over the week.
Today, after lots of week preparing for this moment, Year Four opened up their stalls ready to sell their products. We have created this business idea from scratch, made a logo and slogan, completed market research and designed and improved our products. We have then made some protocols and created order forms. After we had completed all of this, we created some order forms ready to hit the yard.
This breaktime was the first time that we opened our doors for people to place orders or buy. To say it was our first day, we did extremely well. For sale we had: BRACELETS, SLIME, BADGES AND KEY RINGS AND NAIL PAINTING. I am very proud of everyone today for their sales techniques and hope this good business lasts all week.
Don’t forget, if you saw our stalls today and wish to buy something, bring your money at either BREAKTIME OR…
What a great time I’ve had at Prince Edward Primary! I’ve made so many new friends and I have taken part in so many different after school activities.
Yummy – I really enjoyed after school Cooking Club with the Key Stage 2 children. We made a delicious fresh pasta salad.
Tired – after school Tag Rugby was brilliant. Meet the team.
I got to sing a song in Razzamataz; shoot and score at Netball club; practice my downward dog at Cosmic Kidz; and build a tower in Construction Club. There was so much to do at Prince Edward.
During the Easter holiday, I had the opportunity to attend Easter Eggstravaganza with all the Year 6 children. I couldn’t believe all the activities we could take part in including: inflatable obstacle course, SUFC coach, Easter Egg Hunt, SPaG & general knowledge quizzes, Spring crafts, multiplication challenges, and many more. If we attended every day or won a quiz, we had some great prizes to choose from – I really wanted the tickets for Jump!
My maths and literacy skills were put to the test when I went to some after school tutor sessions. Parts of it were easy; other bits were very tricky but I persevered.
Thank you Prince Edward, I have had an amazing time visiting your school and meeting all the children. You do so many interesting activities after school.
Today, there is so much going on we just had to share it. Our children, across school are involved in so much today.
Our resident French teacher, Monsieur Barthelemy teaches all our KS2 pupils weekly. They are making excellent progress and today our Y5s were explaining what the weather was like in France.
Our pupils in our school learn to play the violin. The whole of Year 5 have just started to learn how to play and follow simple musical notation and some of our pupils have elected to study the violin for a second year and take part in a select group. Heather Cordwell is our resident music teacher.
Andy Messer (professional story teller and writer) spends a day in our school each week. He’ll be part of our school for the full year! We are so lucky to have our literacy sessions enriched with his skills and enthusiasm. Today he was working with y4 and he led the whole school assembly at the end of the day captivating every single one of us.
Many of our year groups have been baking for Macmillan Cancer Support today. Y2s have made flapjack and the Y6s baked vegan brownies! The school has smelt wonderful today. Not only are the children involved in fundraising, but the staff have been baking all week to raise money for this worthy cause.
Our Y3s have been learning about the Stone Age since they started this school year. They’ve been up to all sorts. Today, they went in to our Secret Garden working as archaeologists to discover hidden artefacts.
This year all our pupils will have a chance to work with the amazing team at Forest Schools. We are so lucky with our school grounds. We have so much outdoor space and it’s perfect for the type of work we’ll be doing with Forest Schools.
Y2 have been spending time with the team this week. They have been exploring, building, investigating and discovering. They have been searching for bugs and identifying them using charts and keys; and they have made potions and perfumes.
We had some great news last week. Our school has been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark, Silver Award. This means that:
“Gaining a Primary Science Quality Award is a significant achievement for a school. The profile and quality of science teaching and learning in each awarded school is very high. Children are engaging with great science both in and outside the classroom, developing positive attitudes towards science as well as secure science understanding and skills. Science subject leaders, their colleagues, head teachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.”
Our children love learning about science in our school and we have some very talented teachers who know just how to make the science curriculum engaging, inspiring, enjoyable and creative. Click on our Science Blog to find out just what we have been doing over the last few months:
Everyone in school has got off to a flying start. The children have settled in really well to their new classes and the teachers have been planning loads of exciting things for their class. I’ve been reading all the blogs in our school and here are some you might be interested in:
This year our pupils in all year groups have had the chance to work with two wonderful artists from “Artboat”: Soo and Charlie. There is some amazing artwork around school and the latest masterpieces to go up are the Harry Potter sculptures created by the Y5s and the Solar System created by the Y2s. Our school hall looks amazing. We are really going to miss Soo and Charlie, but we know, in a few years, we will invite them back for more stunning art sessions.
