Welcome Back!

It’s a new school year and the weather has been so very kind to us. The children have returned settled and eager to please. All our children have remembered all the school rules and it’s been a delight to see how mature they have become. Before the holidays we had a professional photographer to capture our children learning around school. I’m including some photographs in this first Blog of the year.

Since we’ve started we’ve had lots of events. Children are celebrating Roald Dahl Day today by dressing up in their favourite characters. See the Class Blogs for specific photos of that. School visits are booked in this month with Y6s planning on visiting Eden Camp to support their World War II project. Loads of our children have signed themselves up to attend the many after school clubs. It’s great to see new faces joining Razzamataz theatre club, Rugger Eds (Rugby Club with the professionals), Athletics Club, Gaming Club, Yoga Club and more besides.

This week, children have been applying for the many schools jobs on offer. Trophy Polishing, Plant Watering, Playground Buddies, Office Assistants, Attendance Officers and Lunchtime Assistants are always popular and in demand. In addition, pupils have been voting for the new School Council this week. We have brand new representatives to continue to give a pupil voice in our democratic school. This shows how dedicated and committed our children are to making our school the Team Prince that it is.

Finally, a brand new Pride of Prince Edward will be announced in assembly later today. Who will it be?

 

Amazing Writing: Before and After

One of our Y5 pupils has been working after school on his writing. He’s had 1:1 tuition with Mrs Weet. Just the other day, he came to show me how his original piece of writing had been developed and improved. I was blown away! Here is the before and after. Well done Moustafa.

Before

She finally swoops in and grabs that bag and climbed the tree and shook all of dreams. As soon as the last happy ending flew out it all went back to normal and Jack ran back home and slept.

After

Sneekily, Jack slunk towards the eerie, elderly, wicked witch. With a glare, Jack snatched the bag from the witche’s twig like hands. Jack scampered backwards like a badger as the witch lunged towards the bag full of dreams. As quick as a flash, Jack scaled the trunk of the tallest tree. Jack could’nt reach the branch. She stretched her hands upwards. She jumped. Her fingers clung onto the rough branch. She pulled her self up, her heart beating rapidly. While Jack pulled open the bag, the witch tried to catch up with Jack. As soon as Jack opened the bag, the happy endings flew out like birds.

When Charlie Bear Came to Visit from the Children’s University

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.
