  • St Edmund's Day

    Published 22/11/21

    Yesterday was a very special day for our whole school community as we celebrated and remembered St Edmund. St Edmund's day, which is celebrated around the world on the 20th November each year, is a day to remember his sacrifice, faith and strength to not denounce Christ to the invading Danes. St Edmund was loved by his people for his loving, caring nature and each year we remember his story and try to learn from his example. 

    Children in school have been retelling St Edmund's story through role play, posters, poems and writing, as well as all joining a very special virtual assembly led by Miss Pittendreigh. There was even some time to enjoy some special treats and a class party.

    During the assembly Aysha-Rei, who is in Year 6, shared with us all exactly what it means to be a St Edmund's pupil. It was a lovely piece of writing and demonstrates the special community we have.

    'I have been in this school since Reception. Over the years, I have not only made great friends, but made great memories. To be a St Edmund's child to other people looking in, may seem like being a child at any other school, but it is not. St. Edmund's is not only a school or community, it is a family, it's a home. To be a St. Edmund's child means to be someone who is comfortable being themselves and who is celebrated for it! I am proud to be a St Edmund's child, and I wouldn't change a thing!'

    Please make sure to ask your child about our special day, and we hope you all had a great St Edmund's Day too!

  • Year 6 And The Chocolate Factory

    Published 18/11/21

    This week Year 6 were lucky enough to go and visit The Chocolate Museum in Brixton. This linked to their Topic unit, which this term is all about the Mayans. Children had the opportunity to learn more about the history of the Mayan civilization and even made their own dark chocolate slab, which they could then take home. There was also lots of chocolate tasting!

    Both classes had a great time, and all the adults shared that the children were a credit to the school! 

    Well done everyone!

  • Stars Of The Week!

    Published 12/11/21

    Each week children are chosen by their class teachers to be the 'Star of the Week.' They are chosen for many reasons, including following our school rules 'Ready, Respect and Safe' or by demonstrating our school motto 'Love, Care, Share.' These winners each week are a great example to their peers and make all the adults in St Edmund's very proud. As well as getting a particular certificate, the children receive a special reward in school, and a text message is sent home so that the celebrations can continue. 

    Each week you can find the 'Stars of the Week' by visiting this page.

  • A Busy Week!

    Published 04/11/21

    Pupils have been taking part in lots of different activities across school, making for a very exciting first week back!

    On Monday and Tuesday, Year 1 went on their first-ever school trip. They visited our local library in Edmonton Green. They walked all the way and were able to enjoy an afternoon reading and listening to short stories. They all had a fantastic time and looked very smart in their school uniform and high-vis jackets.

    Each day this week, children in Year 6 have been working hard to complete their Level 1 and Level 2 Cycling proficiency. Pupils had to complete a number of activities where they learn and develop the skills needed to be safe when cycling on the road. The children have thoroughly enjoyed their lessons and well done to those who have achieved their certificates.

    Finally, well done to Thomas, Kwaku and Emmanuel who attended the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation half-term holiday camp. They took part in a number of different NFL games and were rewarded with some amazing goodies at the end of the week. They all had a great time and said they would recommend it to everyone in future. So keep an eye out for future opportunities!

    Well done everyone on a great first week back. Now enjoy a rest this weekend! :-)
