  • Year 5 Learn About Dementia

    Published 26/05/23

    In a heart-warming display of empathy and kindness, our Year 5 students have handcrafted fidget mittens for the residents of Eastbrook Care Home. These have coincided with the children learning about dementia and how to support individuals living with the illness, as their Design and Technology projects aimed to bring comfort and joy to those in need. 

    Under the guidance of Mrs Pope, the mittens were adorned with colourful buttons, soft fabrics and tactile elements, allowing for residents to keep their hands occupied and engaged. 

    A fantastic project which shows the wonderful impact our children can make on our wider community. 

    Great work everyone!

  • King Charles III Coronation

    Published 05/05/23

    Today children at St Edmund’s came to school dressed in red, white and blue clothes as they took part in different exciting events to celebrate the King’s Coronation. On this historic weekend, when our country welcomed a new ruler, it was a day full of joy and festivities. 

    As a school, we were thrilled to be part of this significant event, and our students were excited to learn about the significance of the Coronation. Children learnt about the coronation traditions and the history and importance of the crown jewels, the robes and the throne, which will all be integral parts of the ceremony.
    In the afternoon, year groups came together for a Coronation party with a traditional snack, dancing and plenty of singing!

    It provided a fantastic opportunity for our students to learn about the traditions and customs of our country and celebrate an important event in our history. We hope that this day will remain etched in our students’ memories and that they will continue to learn about our country’s rich history and traditions.

    Thank you to Ms Sinclair for planning a wonderful day!

  • World Book Day

    Published 03/03/23

    Today the children and staff at St Edmund's enjoyed an extraordinary end to the week as we all dressed up to celebrate World Book Day. The children enjoyed a brilliant assembly led by Mr Harding and participated in many activities, discussions and games in class. Children have also received book vouchers to spend at our fair, which has been as popular as ever! 

    This year for World Book Day, we also made a massive push to support those impacted by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, with our whole school community participating in 'The Big Read'. Children have been taking part in extended uninterrupted reading sessions all day, and we will share with you soon how much we have raised. All money raised will help CAFOD as they provide much-needed resources to the people.

    Thank you to all the children, parents and staff for the fantastic effort to make World Book Day the best one yet!

    More pictures will be uploaded soon!

  • Chinese New Year 2023

    Published 09/02/23

    We recently celebrated Chinese New Year throughout the school in a variety of ways. Have a look at just some of the fun we got up to!

    Reception learnt all about Chinese food, while Year 1 made lots of red decorations.

    Year 2 enjoyed learning about Ribbon Dances and did some of their very own. 

    In Year 6, the children used the xylophones to create sound stories. 

    At St Edmund's we know how important it is to show and teach others about our own cultural heritage but also to learn and foster an understanding for other cultures.

    Some children in Year 2 and Year 4 discussed why we should learn about Chinese New Year and celebrations around the world. Here's what some of the children said:

     “If you ever visit the countries you will know all about them and it’s very interesting.”

    “It’s good because you learn about other traditions.”

    “You can learn lots about the rest of the world not just about your own.”

    “You can share about your own, so people understand and learn more.”
