Pride of Prince Edward

Our Pride of Prince Edward this week is such a deserving winner for this award. He is a kind and polite little boy; he tries hard with all the activities he completes; and ‘WOW’s the adults in Pearl class with his super attitude to learning. Fantastic effort and well done!

Learning at Prince Edward

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. 

What will everyone get up to tomorrow?

This week’s Pride of Prince Edward is in Y2 Pearl Class. We are so proud to have him in our school and they are so proud to have him in their class. We can’t imagine the school without him. He always tries so hard with everything that he does, always has a smile on his face; and he never gives up, no matter how tricky he may find something. Congratulations!

Forest Schools at Prince Edward

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. 

 

Artwork in our School Hall

This year our pupils in all year groups have had the chance to work with two wonderful artists from “Artboat”: Soo and Charlie. There is some amazing artwork around school and the latest masterpieces to go up are the Harry Potter sculptures created by the Y5s and the Solar System created by the Y2s. Our school hall looks amazing. We are really going to miss Soo and Charlie, but we know, in a few years, we will invite them back for more stunning art sessions.

Y2 Persuasive Writing

The Y2 children recently showed me some wonderful persuasive writing. At first I wasn’t sure, but they absolutely convinced me to let them have a beach holiday!

The quality of their writing in their Topic Book was just as good as the quality of writing in their English Book.

Today, we had a lovely surprise when we got to have a go at doing some Pilates in our PE session.

Amy taught us how keep balanced on different parts of our body. We had to move different parts whilst keeping the rest of our body still. It wasn’t easy but we persevered and keep on trying.
