Happy New Year everyone! It’s Friday and we have had a great first week back. The children have returned to school with amazing attitudes to learning. They have remembered exactly how we do things here at Prince Edward Primary. They are polite, courteous, friendly, sincere, hard working and responsible. I’ve enjoyed seeing all our pupils and their families each morning when they come to school. Meeting and greeting our families on the school yard is a great start to the day. The children have thrown themselves straight in to their learning and after school clubs: Y6 are looking at alternative fairy tales, Y3s have been excited about their dance; and gaming club, Razzmatazz Drama Club and Handball Club have got off to a great start.
It’s been a week since we all returned after our Christmas holiday. Welcome back to all our children, their parents and families and to all the dedicated staff. The children never fail to amaze me! They returned settled, keen to learn, enthusiastic and each year group seemed to have matured over the holidays. In just one week, the pupils have proved that they haven’t forgotten any of our school rules, routines or expectations. Well done: I am very proud.
Welcome back to all our pupils and staff. We arrived back on a bitter January morning and cracked straight on with all the exciting activities the day brings. Our Y5s are playing the violin and our Y6s haven’t stopped speaking French this morning. Y3s unwrapped a fish tank and there’s lots of play dough in the Early Years.
I will look forward to reading Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein with the Y6s this afternoon. Before Christmas, the monster had been reunited with Frankenstein and had requested that he create him a “mate”!
