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.
Just look at what our nursery children are doing! They are so enthusiastic about their learning. They are showing determination and using the skills to saw, attach and design. They even revisit their plans and improve on what they have made.
We are very excited to have our new workbench in nursery! We have been using real tools on our workbench and making some great models.
First we learnt how to keep ourselves safe. We explored the tools and learnt about the best ways to use them.
We thought about how to keep ourselves safe and put hand prints on the bench so we knew how to keep our hands a safe distance away. We wore safety goggles to make sure we didn’t get anything in our eyes. There are rules we have to follow when we use the work bench and we have all been very good at listening to the rules and keeping ourselves safe.
We started off by exploring each tool one at a time and finding the safest and most comfortable way to use them.
Once we were confident we started to combine tools by cutting wood…
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.
Some of our Y5 and Y6 pupils competed in this year’s inter-school Robot Wars competition. Every year we invite the Robot Wars expert in to show us how to make our own robots, to embark on challenges and navigate obstacles. We always invite pupils from other schools in Sheffield to take part too.
What is particularly exciting, is one of the heavily, armoured robots from the TV show makes an appearance in our school and we can see how complex the real robots are. They are virtually indestructible.
We were proud to come in 2nd and 3rd place out of all the groups from all the schools taking part.
