P4C

At Prince Edward Primary School, we love P4C, and recently we were really lucky to have Miss Caudwell come in to lead a session.

Violins!

Last week, Year 5 had their final violin lesson of the year. We learned so much during the year, and by the end we had really perfected our technique. Don’t forget: if you would like to continue with the violin in Year 6, you can! Just ask Mrs Lohoar for a letter. Thank you, Sheffield…

Terrific Tudors!

This half term Year 5 have been learning all about the Tudors: how the Tudor era began, what life was life for people during the time (particularly for children) and what kind of monarch Henry VIII was. First we learned about the War of the Roses and the Battle of Bosworth, which ended the war…
