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.

 

 

Summer Fun Run at Manor Fields

 

On Wednesday all our Key Stage 2 children were involved in an event called Go Run For Fun which was held at Manor Fields. Other schools were involved from the locality and all 850 of them wore pink, branded T-shirts and completed a 1 mile course as fast as they could.

The children were joined by the European Athletics 100m Hurdles Champion: Alicia Barrett. They felt honoured! Alicia will be competing this summer in London at the Anniversary Games.

The children and teachers had loads of fun and remained motivated and determined throughout. Well done to everyone for taking part.

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.

Summertime has Arrived

Over the last few days the weather has really been kind to us. Sunny weather means more outdoor learning. Our school has loads to offer to the pupils. We have a MUGA, a timber trail on astro-turf, a field, allotments, the Biodome, a Secret Garden, the Playpod, an amphitheater, sheltered decking areas, basketball shoots, sheltered bistro tables for outdoor dining and a new cave built in to the banking. 

Today we made full use of our environment and everyone enjoyed their lunch outdoors. The children in our school enjoy having the chance to be active during their breaktimes. The pictures below should capture how lucky we are.
