World Book Day!

We all had a lot of fun making this and hope the children can work out who their class teacher is.

Today, we celebrated World Book day a little differently to how we would in normal circumstances. We put on our cosy pyjamas and enjoyed listening to a story. We discussed the characters and were able to relate the story to our favourite book which was interesting as we listened to each other’s opinions. The teachers at Prince Edward took part in a ‘masked reader’ activity where we read parts of a book and tried to disguise ourselves. Can you guess the teacher?

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.



World Book Day 2019

Well done Onyx Class for all your efforts on World Book Day! Your book cover classroom door looks amazing and I really like how you have documented in photographs how you created it! Thank you for taking the time to photograph all the wonderful doors too. It’s nice to see them all.

We had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day last week. We had to decorate our door with our favourite book. Miss Mohammed asked all the children and they had a vote to decide which book Onyx class should recreate. We had read all the Love Monster stories by Rachel Bright when it was Valentine’s Day and loved them all. It was difficult to decide on a favourite but we decided on LOVE MONSTER AND THE LAST CHOCOLATE🙂 

Everyone worked hard together to make the different parts we needed for our door. First we needed to make a Love Monster. We had to find a lot of different red materials so we could make him the right colour.


Then we made the chocolate box look like the purple one in the story. We added a sign which said ‘chocolates’ by looking at the book and copying what it…

World Book Day

We love to celebrate World Book day by getting dressed up as our favourite characters. We always decorate every single classroom door to depict book covers too. Amber Class looks particularly great!

Today Prince are celebrating World Book Day. This morning I was greeted with so many wonderful costumes of a range of different books that the children love. Here we are!


This week we have worked hard on our door display. We coloured beautifully to create all the fantastic things Mr Wonka has in his chocolate room. We then decided we would make ourselves into Oompa Loompas and have one of the members of Amber class as Charlie!


We even managed to have some real life Oompa Loompas too!


What a great set of costumes Amber class and what a great day celebrating we have had. We have read our favourite books, shared our class story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory whilst relaxing on the carpet and even watched BBC World Book Day Live Lesson.

The London Eye Mystery

When Y6 started writing mysteries in October, I thought that it would be a perfect opportunity for me to read The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd to the children in their story time session with me.

Instantly, the children were gripped by the story line and the strong characters. I was amazed at how good they were at being detectives over the weeks and they soon started looking for clues in the book. They dealt with the themes maturely and synthesized the information read to them.

At the very end of the book, when all the loose ends had been tied up, I asked the children about the characters. This is what they said:

About Kat:

“At first  she appeared to be unkind to Ted or at least to have very little patience for him. ”

“I felt that she was constantly breaking rules. She was sneaking cigarettes and sometimes not going to school. She even tried to avoid showing her mum her school report. She encouraged Ted to lie.”

“She was energetic! She showed enthusiasm at the motor cycle show and could run up 24 flights of stairs in the tower block. I think that in public spaces like school, she’d be very popular and confident.”

“I loved seeing how she worked well with Ted to solve the mystery. It was clear that she loved him and understood him.”

“I noticed how she had highs and lows. One minute she was happy then snappy. Is that because she’s a teenage girl?”

About Aunt Gloria:

“She was emotional!”

“She was frantic at times. She worried constantly.”

“I felt that she was selfish. She wanted to go to New York and gave very little thought about what Salim wanted. She cared about herself and how she looked.”

“In the end I felt that she had learnt her lesson.”

About Ted:

“Ted was smart. He was a thinker. He used his skills to his advantage. He understood his strengths.”

“Sometimes Ted could be clueless. He often jumped to conclusions. It was clear that he couldn’t read people’s body language or understand turns of phrase or sayings. He tried so hard to improve this.”

“He tried to fit in with his autism…”

So then, to conclude I asked the children this:

“We are all different. We love being different. Should we try to change ourselves to fit in? Or should we be who we are without feeling the need to change or fit in?”

And the children’s response was unanimous….. Of course we should be who we are and never change to fit in.

Merry Christmas!
