Love, Care, Share Our Religious Assemblies R.E.  Page

On the last day of the Autumn term, the whole school, from Reception to Year 6 showcased the songs that they had been learning during the term. It was a raucous celebration which enabled all in attendance - especially the teachers - to rejoice in the Christmas spirit.

Our assemblies for Remembrance Day were led by children from Year 2 and Year 5. Once again we were lucky enough to be joined by some of our friends from the Leyton branch of the Royal British Legion including WW2 veteran, Mr Bill Allen, who will be 99 next month. The choir performed a medley of patriotic songs as well as leading the school in singing Happy Birthday to Mr Allen. The British Legion chose the winners of our Centenary Cross competition and presented the prizes - congratulations to Jediael (KS1 winner) and Ellie (KS2 winner). As well as their prizes, they won the right to lay our wreath at the Edmonton Remembrance Parade - which they did beautifully.

One of the spectators wrote to Father Witon of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Saint George Parish​ to complement Ellie and Jediael: "I thought I would drop you a brief line to say how fantastic the two children from St Edmund’s Catholic Primary school in Edmonton conducted themselves at the wreath laying at Edmonton Green. They laid the wreath with such solemnity, respect and grace it was simply outstanding. Please do pass on my thoughts to their headteacher as they not only did themselves proud, but the entire Edmonton community."

On Tuesday 20th November 2018 we celebrated Our Feast Day. All the children went over to Mass, which was led by year 4 children. Children from Year 4 read out the story of St. Edmund's life whilst children from Year 2 acted it out. We had a very happy feast day.
