So earlier this half term, we learned about commitment, specifically commitment in Christianity and what Christians believe Jesus taught his followers about it. We talked about what commitment means to us and how we show commitment to different things and different people. We then read a modern day version of "The Good Samaritan" parable followed … Continue reading Commitment
We have been so busy with our learning these past two weeks that we haven't had a chance to update you! First off, our Mathematician of the Week (left) for 29th September was chosen because he persevered with some tricky place-value work and then helped his partner (right). His partner went on to push herself … Continue reading Better Late Than Never… Superstars x2!
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…

Our Mathematician was so focused with her place-value work last week, challenging herself and not giving up, while our Star was asking thoughtful and insightful questions (and continues to do so!). Then we have a special award -- Scientist … Continue reading Last Week’s Superstars
The first Pride of Prince Edward was awarded on Friday to a girl who has been ready for this recognition since she was in Year 2!
This superstar has been a Pride of Prince Edward now for some time. She’s been doing the right thing for years! She has made a fantastic start to the new school year and shows real enthusiasm. She’s helpful and friendly and truly deserves this award.
We had some great news last week. Our school has been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark, Silver Award. This means that:
“Gaining a Primary Science Quality Award is a significant achievement for a school. The profile and quality of science teaching and learning in each awarded school is very high. Children are engaging with great science both in and outside the classroom, developing positive attitudes towards science as well as secure science understanding and skills. Science subject leaders, their colleagues, head teachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.”
Our children love learning about science in our school and we have some very talented teachers who know just how to make the science curriculum engaging, inspiring, enjoyable and creative. Click on our Science Blog to find out just what we have been doing over the last few months:
