Our School took part in this special event to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee.

The whole school celebrated the Royal Wedding with a Royal street party in the playground.

Many thanks to Mr Fitch and Miss Lynch for being William and Kate for the day.

The whole school including ex-students and parents took part in our centenary event celebrating our 100th year as a Catholic school.

On Friday 11th July 2014 we (St Edmunds) held our third Sports Day of the Year, this one being for Key Stage 1.

Key Stage 1 were due to have their Sports day in the Junior Playground, but due to poor weather, we had to hold it in the school hall.

This resulted in a limited number of events, but it was a great success as every child took part and everyone had a great time.

Thank you to the teachers for organising this competition and making sure it still went ahead. Next year, Key Stage 1, like the Juniors, will have their Sports Day at Lee Valley Athletics Stadium!


A very special visitor known as Google came to our school demonstrating his great work towards aiding people.

The referee’s decision is final!



Members of the Code Club have been running a lunchtime Penalty shoot-out competition for Key Stage 1 pupils using the Roamer robots.

For World Book Day, children were able to dress up as their favourite Roald Dahl character! The children had a fantastic day of activities including the chance to add their own part to a story during a workshop.

Year 1 learned all about voting in the General Election.  We found out about the five main parties standing and thought carefully about who to vote for.  Then we put an X next to the party we wanted to win.  We took our polling cards to the polling station in year 2 and posted our votes into the ballot box!  We wish we could have voted in the real thing!

Years 1 and 2 enjoyed a trip to the Cinema thanks to the Into Film Festival. We saw the Minions film in 3D and it was fantastic!

Well done to all of those children who entered the KS1 Playground design competition. There were so many fantastic entries that it was decided there would be a winner from both Year 1 and Year 2 classes. The winners were awarded special certificates at assembly and their final designs are now on show for others to admire. Can you spot any of their ideas in our exciting new KS1 playground? Well done again to Janosha, Ebuka, Maya and Rebecca.

Year 1's Christmas performance of ' The Sleepy Shepherd' was a great success!  The children did an amazing job and had a lovely time showing off all their acting, singing, dancing and reading skills!  Well done Year 1! 

We were surprised and excited to come back from our summer holiday to find that an enormous pumpkin had grown in our playground!

The pumpkin measures nearly 150cm around and is shown here being measured by Amerie who is in Year 1 (and measures nearly 100cm tall!)

We were treated to a visit from some creepy crawly creatures! We held giant African snails, stroked snakes and were tickled by centipedes! It was great fun and we learned about the habitats of all the different creatures."

Year 1 enjoyed a Chinese New Year inspired dance workshop.  We were all peacocks using fans to be our tails.  We learned all about the Chinese New Year story and we are looking forward to the Year of the Monkey. Gong Hey Fat Choy!

Year 1's Christmas play, 'The Sleepy Shepherd', was a triumph!  The children had lots of fun singing, dancing, acting and narrating.  Well done Year 1!

Year 1 enjoyed a workshop all about Roald Dahl.  The children thought up new words, like Roald Dahl did in the BFG, and they thought of imaginative new uses for a satsuma, a washing up glove and a Frisbee, amongst other things!  It was great fun.

There were some great costumes for Book Week in Year 1.  Peter Pan and Spiderman were just two!  The children had great fun.

We were all very excited when the Easter Bunny came to visit us!  To welcome our very special guest, the children designed and made Easter hats and we had an Easter Parade.  The hats were absolutely fantastic and the children put lots of effort and enthusiasm into making them.  Well done!  The Easter Bunny had a very hard job deciding on the competition winners!  

Year 1 visited the church. We talked about the events of Holy Week and we prayed at the Stations of the Cross.

Cheers to the Queen on her 90th birthday! We had a fun party to celebrate and used our commemorative plates for our snacks. Happy birthday your Majesty!

Queens Birthday

We went on a picnic with our teddy bears!  We had a great time eating, dancing and singing.
