Year 6 performed their Haka  to celebrate the end of their SATs.


On 23 October 2014 two girls from Year 6 represented St. Edmund’s in the semi-final of the Mayors Award for Public Speaking. Both girls spoke so beautifully, and with such great confidence, that they made it through to the final which will be held next month. We wish them both the best of luck!

A big congratulations to Mevna and Mikaela for doing a fantastic job at representing St.Edmund’s in the final for the Mayor’s Award for Public Speaking. They wrote and presented their own speeches and showed real passion in their chosen subjects. They even impressed the Deputy Mayor of Enfield, who attended the competition and presented the finalists with their certificates. Well done girls!

In English, children studied the various features used to create a mystery story. 

We identified the different genres in fictional writing, read numerous short stories, then focused on our favourite which were short mystery stories. We watched a short mysterious animation clip. Discussed the ways tension is built and the use of mysterious vocabulary, then began to create our own. 




In English, children studied the key features of a biography and then created a biography on John Lennon.

The whole school took part in the Mary Procession in the Parish garden.


Year 2, 3, 5 and 6 children had writing workshops with author Donna Vann.

We learned how to plan, write and edit a story.

Some children also learnt the importance of hooking the reader and ways to do this.


Back in Week 4, Class 6.1 performed their last ever assembly at St Edmund’s school. As it was the turn of the New Year and time for new year’s resolutions, we thought it would be appropriate to think about different ways we could help people change for the better. So, our fictional company ‘Fix-Up’ acted out a range of scenarios in which people have improved their lives. Apologies that there are elements missing from the recording – this is due to children not being given permission to be recorded.


Level 2, which is completed by Year 6, allows the children to interact with real traffic. By completing Level 2, children show they have the skills to make a trip safely on quiet roads and cycle lanes, and possibly to school. Depending on the children’s progress the children may go for an enjoyable ride with the instructors, leaving them with positive thoughts towards cycling.

 



How we divide by decimals in year 6.


Year 6 children were learning to draw in the style of Stephen Wiltshire. As part of this topic they had to choose a famous British landmark and research its history. Then they had to draw it in the style of Stephen Wiltshire.  

We then created a British landmark display board, displaying their research and art work.

Have a look at our creations.

Jayden (6.1) and Mrs Pearson represented the school at the Royal British Legion (Leytonstone) VE Day celebrations on Saturday May 9th. We followed members of the Legion, ATC Cadets and Drummers, the Army Cadets, the Sea Scouts, the Girl Guides and the St Johns Ambulance from St John’s Church to the Ex-Service Men’s Club in Leytonstone. There was a short remembrance service led by the Legion Chaplain followed by two minutes silence when the Royal Standards were dipped. Then we mingled with the other guests including Pearly Kings and Queens and Chelsea Pensioners (who we told that one of our International Day balloons ended up in their grounds!), joined in the sing-along and ate wartime food including trench cake.


Year 6 visited the CLC to learn how to use GarageBand to make music and podcasts.


Year 6 used JavaScript to draw the Star of David symbol to complement their RE lessons about Judaism.


Class 6.2 went on a walk around the Church Street Conservation Area with local historian, Joe Studland. Mr Studland told us about the coming of the railway in 1849 which transformed Edmonton from a village to a suburb. He also told us about famous people who lived in Church Street: the poet, John Keats, who lived with his grandmother in Church Street from 1805 and was later apprenticed to an apothecary (pharmacist) in Edmonton. Also Charles and Mary Lamb, who wrote a children’s version of Shakespeare in 1807, lived in a cottage in Church Street which was a private mental hospital. We also went to All Saints Church which is the oldest building in Enfield and Mr Studland told us the legend of Peter Fable who tricked the devil three times and is supposedly bricked up in the church wall.

During International Week, Year 6 presented projects on many different countries. We also had family members come in and help us with our presentations. We respected, listened and encouraged each other.


Members of the Royal British Legion (Leytonstone) gave a talk to Year 6 about World War 2. One of them, Mr Bill Allen, was one of Field Marshall Montgomery's bodyguard, helping to guard him in England before D-Day then after D-Day in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. The children were thrilled to meet a real hero!

June 2016: KS2 went on pilgrimage to the Year of Mercy Holy Door in St. George's in Enfield. It was a prayerful time to reflect on God's loving mercy for each one of us.

Many of our Year 6 children performed at the Enfield Mayor's Choral Award final in which the choir finished 3rd. The choirs were selected from all over the borough of Enfield so this was a wonderful achievement.

The Year 6 children had great fun competing at Lea Valley Indoor Athletics Centre for Sports Day.



Sports Day

Since the end of SATs week, Year 6 turned their attentions from revision and exams  to treading the boards of the St. Edmund's Church Hall stage in the end of year production. Children contributed in many ways including the design and creation of props, programmes and tickets; learning songs and their accompanying dances; and, of course, learning their lines by heart.

Sure enough, all of their hard work and dedication paid off when they performed to the school and later on the parents on Monday 18th July. It was an excellent performance and received many plaudits from the audience. Well done Year 6. 



Year 6 children received medals and awards at the presentation assembly on their final day at St Edmund's School. This was a fantastic way to end the year marking all of their wonderful achievements.
