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.
This year all our pupils will have a chance to work with the amazing team at Forest Schools. We are so lucky with our school grounds. We have so much outdoor space and it’s perfect for the type of work we’ll be doing with Forest Schools.
Y2 have been spending time with the team this week. They have been exploring, building, investigating and discovering. They have been searching for bugs and identifying them using charts and keys; and they have made potions and perfumes.
We had some great news last week. Our school has been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark, Silver Award. This means that:
“Gaining a Primary Science Quality Award is a significant achievement for a school. The profile and quality of science teaching and learning in each awarded school is very high. Children are engaging with great science both in and outside the classroom, developing positive attitudes towards science as well as secure science understanding and skills. Science subject leaders, their colleagues, head teachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.”
Our children love learning about science in our school and we have some very talented teachers who know just how to make the science curriculum engaging, inspiring, enjoyable and creative. Click on our Science Blog to find out just what we have been doing over the last few months:
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.
