At Prince Edward Primary School, we love P4C, and recently we were really lucky to have Miss Caudwell come in to lead a session. We had been learning about rainforests in Topic, so for our stimulus we watched a video about forest clearing. For our philosophical question, we chose the following: Is medicine good our … Continue reading P4C
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 … Continue reading Violins!

Miss Deighton invited Y5 children to take part in a Reading Buddies after school club with Reception children.
