Pride of Prince Edward

Pope July week 3

This young man has been a Pride of Prince Edward ever since he first walked through the door. He is sensible, he is mature and he is such a hard worker. He always pushes himself to improve and to get to grips with things that he finds tricky. He can always be relied upon to set a fantastic example to others, he always has a smile on his face; and he never, ever gives up. In lessons he listens carefully, gets on with his work sensibly and likes to challenge himself. He helps his friends if they are stuck and plays nicely with them at break and lunch times, cheering on his team on the MUGA. It is lovely to see you being a superstar both in and out of the classroom, you truly are a Pride of Prince Edward!


The Pride of Prince Edward


POPE May 1 2018

Our Y3 Pride of Prince Edward has been ready for this award for years! He is polite, well-mannered and a respectful boy who always gives 100% effort. He completes all of his work to the best of his abilities and perseveres even when things are difficult. These qualities and more are what make him a perfect Pride of Prince Edward.

Pride of Prince Edward March 2018

This wonderful young man hasn’t been at our school for very long but he has been ready for this award from the moment he walked through the doors! He is kind and thoughtful. He looks after others in the class and will be the first person to care for someone if they are upset. It is for all these reasons, that he is the perfect choice for the Pride of Prince Edward.

Progress in Writing: Before and After

I always love reading work from pupils. I love to see the pride in their faces when they show me. In our school, our pupils work so hard to improve their writing. They carefully read their teacher’s marking, they self edit their work (or others’), they try hard with their handwriting in order to acquire the ‘pen licence’; and they always try to make the most current piece of writing show the progress they have made since September. 

Have a look at these examples: 

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?
