  • New York, Milan, Paris....Edmonton!

    Published 24/06/21

    This term, Year 6 children have been studying fashion through the ages as part of the Design and Technology curriculum.  Children started by researching fashion design from the Victorian era through to the present day and particularly focused on fashion made from recycled materials. 

    As part of the project, children had to design and make outfits from newspaper.  They then presented their outfits to the rest of Key Stage 2 at a socially distanced fashion show, where a chosen model walked the catwalk and another child presented their idea.  The children worked extremely well to create exciting and imaginative designs and really enjoyed showing off their hard work. 

    Well done to all the children and staff for putting on a great show!

  • Year 5 - My Money Week

    Published 18/06/21

    This week across the school has been My Money Week. This is a national activity week for primary schools that provides a fantastic opportunity for young people to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence in money matters to thrive in society. It's the highest-profile and most recognised personal finance education initiative in England.

    Across the school, each year group have been working on fantastic projects, which include buying from class shops to visiting new lemonade stands.

    Year 5 have been working all week to plan, budget and organise a tea party for the year group and a lucky few VIPs. On Friday morning, the children spent time making sandwiches, fruit kebabs, sharing treats and decorating the hall in preparation for the party. From the pictures below, you can see a great time was had by all lucky enough to be invited. 

    Children from across the school have worked hard all week, and we are sure there will be some budding entrepreneurs in the future!

    Well done, everyone!

  • Fun At Lunchtime!

    Published 11/06/21

    For the last couple of months, the children at St Edmund's have been very fortunate to have not one but two sports coaches during their lunch hour. The coaches from Foundation Sports, who are an award-winning coaching company, deliver an active lunchtime program. This aims to keep children engaged with organised games and educate children on how to play nicely, resulting in an even more positive lunchtime experience. 

    'I like the sports coaches because they make up games which are fun to play.' (M - Class 5.2)

    'Sports coaches help make the games we play fun and fair. They teach us to play correctly.'(D - Class 6.1)

    I like the sports coaches because they are funny and help us all to play nicely' (P - Class 3.2)
