Last week, Prince Edward was lucky enough to take part in a Robotics Day with two other primary schools in Sheffield. There were four Year 5s from our school and four Year 6s, and we had to build robotic cars that would compete with each other. We used K'Nex, a construction-toy system. Our Year 5s … Continue reading Robotics Day!

So as you may be aware, last week was Environment Week across our school, and in the afternoons, children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 were mixed into groups to learn about different aspects of the environment.

This week is extra special throughout Prince Edward School, not only because it’s the last week of half term, but also because it’s Environment Week!
What is Environment Week?

All the children got a new swimming bag and a voucher for a free swim. Have a look at the website to choose the venue you would like to visit.
Obviously we dont have any photos from in the pool but here are our excited faces on our journey there.
Thanks to SIV for hosting and to all the organisers within SSELP.
We visited Hary Potter World as part of our literacy learning. Having spent lots of time reading, writing and generally enjoying ‘Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone’, we spent a day at the set in Watford. It was amazing!
We entered the Grand Hall and we were blown away! It was like the book came to life.
As we moved through the aircraft hangers, we spotted so many familiar objects and places.
Everywhere we looked we recognised things. There was so much to see and do. We lifted broomsticks magically, we boarded the Hogwarts Express and we tried to make it through platform 9 3/4.
The place was huge and some of it was outside. We saw the Dursleys’ house, the Knight bus, and we rode on the motorbike and in the flying car.
We walked down Diagon Alley. There were shops and places we recognised all around. We found…
