  • The Royal Society Young People's Book Prize 2022

    Published 24/01/23

    Some of the girls in Year 6 were asked to be judges of the Young People's Book Prize 2022 - an award for the best science book of the year. We all read the books and marked them out of 5 for Ease of reading, Interest, Look and feel and Inspiration. It was a close run thing but most of us decided that Fantastically Great Women Scientists and Their Stories was our favourite, and most inspiring book. Amorae wrote that what she liked best about the book was that it shows powerful women who changed history and did incredible things. We have submitted our scores to the Royal Society and wait to see which one wins the prize. You can now read all the books because they have been added to our school library!

  • Scientists Of The Future!

    Published 13/01/23

    At St Edmunds, Science is taught with an emphasis on improving scientific language and skills. We provide lessons and experiences that allow our pupils to develop and build Science process skills as they move through the key stages. As the world around us becomes more science-driven, we expose our pupils to experiences that spark further interest in STEM-based careers. Pupils can ask and investigate their own questions through weekly science lessons and explore the subject further through cross-curricular learning.

    As we continue to raise the profile of Science in our school, this academic year, we introduced Super Scientists in each class. These individuals have displayed an enthusiasm for the subject or excelled in a lesson /topic. The reward for this fantastic display of Science knowledge or skill is their very own lab jacket, which can be worn for the next block of lessons! 

    So, if you ever see a child wearing one of our lab jackets, ask them any Science questions you may have!

    Well done to all the children who have started the year as their classes' new Super Scientist!​​

  • KS2 Christmas Carol Concert - The Bells Ring Out

    Published 20/12/22

    For the first time since December 2019, it was truly special to welcome all of the St Edmund's community together again to join in prayer and worship for the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ at our KS2 Christmas Carol Concert - The Bells Ring Out. 

    All of the performers and congregation left with huge smiles on their faces and filled with Christmas spirit. It was a truly special evening and the children from Years 3 and 4 acted out and read the Christmas story so beautifully and respectfully. The choir, supported by all of kS2 in some of the carols, sang marvellously and harmoniously in celebration of Jesus' birth. 

    Merry Christmas to one and all - may the bells ring out in each and every household!

  • St Edmund's Choir Brings Joy To Eastbrook Care Home

    Published 13/12/22

    Last Friday, our fantastic school choir took some time out of their day to visit Eastbrook Care Home in lower Edmonton and sing Christmas carols for the residents and staff. Singing and listening to music can be a great source of joy and comfort for people, especially during the holiday season. It's a thoughtful and kind gesture for the choir to share their talents in this way. I'm sure the residents of the care home appreciated the performance and the festive spirit it brought.

    A huge thank you to Mrs Pope and Miss O'Halloran for organising this thoughtful gesture.

  • Reception Fairy Tale Ball

    Published 25/11/22

    Today was an incredibly colourful affair over in our Reception block. Each classroom was full of princesses, knights, dragons and even a few gingerbread men. The children came to school dressed as their favourite characters from a story and attended the St Edmund's Fairy Tale Ball. Throughout the day, there were lots of laughter and smiles as the children talked about their character and even joined in some ballroom dancing. The children have been learning about traditional tales and their characters, settings and feelings over the past few weeks. So this was the perfect way to bring all of this to life.


    Thank you to all the parents who made a great effort to help the children look so fantastic. Also, a big well done to the Reception team, who organised and also dressed up for the day!

    More pictures can be found in our school gallery.

  • Year 2 Fire Station Visit

    Published 18/11/22

    Yesterday morning, in the gloomy autumn rain, our Year two children set out to visit Edmonton fire station. Wearing their jackets and wellies, they walked 15 minutes to Church street to meet the firefighters. The children had a fantastic morning and were shown around the station, had a go in the fire trucks and even had a shot with the fire hose. The children returned to school incredibly pleased with their trip and spent the rest of the day sharing their experiences with anyone who would listen. 

    It was also wonderful to hear the firefighters praise the children for their excellent behaviours whilst visiting. 

    Very well done all of Year 2 for showing how excellent St Edmund's can be.

    A big thank you also to the staff and parents who supported the pupils on the trip.

    You can find more pictures of the day in our school gallery.

  • We will remember them...

    Published 11/11/22

    This morning, Key Stage 2 was part of a special assembly remembering those who have died in armed conflicts worldwide. Mrs Pearson helped organise the assembly, which this year focused on the Falklands War as we recognise its 40th anniversary. The children read beautifully from the front as they told us about the conflict and its significance in British history. Mrs Pope also led the choir in a beautiful rendition of 'We will be heroes'. 

    Also, today at 11'o clock, the whole school were upstanding for two minutes of silence and listened to The Last Stand.
