End of the School Year

What a year! This year has been truly wonderful. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing the children grow and learn; achieve and make progress; investigate and explore; and all the while enjoy their time here at Prince Edward Primary.

Today was our last day and children who had met all their reading targets were invited to an Ice Cream Sundae making event! We’ve handed out loads of certificates to the children who earn credits for the Children’s University.

Sports day has been a huge success and everyone took part…even the staff and some parents! We’ve also had celebrations for the children who have had 100% attendance and perfect punctuality.

Our exam results this year were the best we’ve ever achieved with 83% in Reading, 93% in Writing, 93% in Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar; and 89% in maths! Well done everyone. This was a “Team Prince” effort.

I personally want to thank all the  governors, school staff, children and families for working in partnership to provide the best possible education and life chances for our children. I feel so proud to be part of this amazing team.

 

 

Children’s University

Here at Prince Edward, we encourage all our children to take part in out of school activities which can earn Children’s University credits. The more credits a child earns, the higher ranked the badge and certificate. We have children who have earned Ruby Gold, and Ruby Platinum certificates for totaling many, many hours of activities.

End of Year Celebrations!

What a year! This year has been wonderful. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing the children grow and learn; achieve and make progress; investigate and explore; and all the while enjoy their time here at Prince Edward Primary. I personally want to thank all the  governors, school staff, children and families for working in partnership to provide the best possible education and life chances for our children. I feel so proud to be part of this amazing team. 

Today, it is our last day and we had a celebration assembly. Children received certificates for the Children’s University, for knowing all their multiplication facts, for 100% attendance and for homework. Some children not only had 100% attendance for the year, but some children had 100% attendance for two, three and four consecutive years!

One child had five consecutive years of 100% attendance and she was presented with two very special gifts. She loves reading, so she was presented with a bundle of books to take with her when she leaves for secondary school. She also received a glass paperweight with inscription. Well done. We are all so proud and we will miss you. 

There were three sports awards to present too. One child received the school’s Outstanding Contribution to Sports’ Trophy. This was for putting 100% effort in to a range of sports in school. She takes part in the daily mile run, Take 10 daily aerobics, the school’s orienteering team and the girls’ football team. Another child received the Outstanding Sporting Attitude Award. A few months ago when she started swimming lessons at school, she was petrified. With her growth mindset, she persevered, worked on her weaknesses and focused on putting in the right effort in order to get better. As a result she can swim a full length of the pool and has even taken up swimming for pleasure after school. The newest award to add to our huge collection of trophies was a trophy awarded to two girls who took part in speed cycling in the city finals. They came third out of all the competitors. 

Finally, we were proud to present the highest accolade our school can award. It is the Outstanding Approach Cup. This young lady was awarded this for her thirst for knowledge, her love of reading, her consistent 100% attendance, her ambition to be better everyday, her love of school, her love of challenge; and how she can create an epicentre of positivity with all those who know her. We are so proud and we will miss her. 

I sincerely wish everyone a wonderful summer. Please stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all in September when you return. I can only hope that next year brings as much success as this one. 

Thank you and best wishes.

Here at Prince Edward we work in partnership with the Children’s University. Children who participate in clubs and out of school activities can earn credits. We present certificates and badges to pupils on a regular basis in assemblies and we can celebrate just how many hours and credits the children have totalled up. Every so often, our children attend a very special ceremony wearing robes and mortar boards, meeting special guests. Here’s the photograph from the ceremony which took place last week.

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.
