Learning at Prince Edward

Prince Edward Headteacher's Blog

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.

IMG3Andy 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…

Artwork in Our School Hall

Prince Edward Headteacher's Blog

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.

Sheffield Music Hub Performance

emeraldclassblog

We had an amazing time when musicians and singers from Sheffield Music Hub came in and performed for us.  They told a story using words, songs and music.  The story was ‘Where the Wild Things are”.

At times we had to join in with noises, playing instruments and singing. Some of us held up props.

Ellie: It was really funny when they told us what the translations were.

Cody W: I enjoyed it and it was really fun. I liked the howling.

Saron: Their voices went really high and it sounded incredible.

Green for Grenfell

Thank you, Pearl class, for writing this post. Mrs Lohoar did not get the chance to photograph our class for this, but we had lots of green in Amethyst, too!

Today, we were invited to wear the colour green to support the people suffering or were involved in the Grenfell fire in London. By wearing green, we show solidarity and support for the people who died, were injured or lost everything in this tragic event.

A huge thank you to all of our parents and carers for sending donations in for this cause. We have raised over £200. This money will go towards helping those that have been affected in London.

100% Attendance for the Whole Year

Prince Edward Headteacher's Blog

100% Attendance Award

33 children met a very important person today – The Lord Mayor! This is because they have been recognised as having 100% attendance for the year which is a really great achievement and one that we are very proud of.
Miss French told me she was extremely proud of the children and as usual, their behaviour and manners were impeccable. In fact, someone on the tram commented how we behaved the children were! Several other Headteachers have told me that they were at the wonderful event and our children stood out a mile as being so well-behaved and respectful.
Well done children, you all have a love of school and learning and are wonderful ambassadors for Prince Edward Primary School.
