On Wednesday the 3 rd of May the whole school celebrated the King's Coronation with a wonderful picnic in the playground. The playground was decorated with balloons, flags and photos of the royal family. The children enjoyed a lunch of sandwiches, drinks and cakes outside on tables decorated in red, white and blue and special coronation glasses. As a treat the children also had delicious ice pops to share with their friends.
Year 4 went to KidZania in Westfield London, to challenge themselves in every way possible; from 'working' to earn money, to deciding whether to 'bank' it for later or spend their hard earned money! Children had the opportunity to become a pilot, a fire fighter, or the next award-winning singer! They were able to try out more than 60 real life role-play activities in the bank, on stage or fighting crime on the streets as a police officer! Each role-play experience was crafted to teach kids essential life skills including financial literacy, team work and independence.
On Thursday the 30 th of March our children had the wonderful opportunity to watch the Oliver Twist show performed by the M & M theatre company. The children really enjoyed the show and joined in with the singing and dancing to this classic story. The actors did a brilliant job and portrayed the roles of Oliver Twist, Artful Dodger and Fagin in the classic Charles Dicken's style. We look forward to welcoming them back next year for another amazing performance.
On 9th February, St Edward’s welcomed Jamie Knight, the Freestyle Footballer to our school as part of ‘Aspirations Week’. Jamie Knight is currently one of the world's best and most in-demand Professional Football Freestylers. Jamie has travelled worldwide working with the most prominent global brands, comprising of the likes of Nike, Adidas & Red Bull. Jamie's performances include some of the most prolific sports events such as an on the pitch performance at the 2017 UEFA Champions League Final in front of 80,000 people and a global audience of 200+ million and also an on stage performance at the 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards in front of the world's best athletes past and present.
Little City is an entirely mobile role play city for the under 6’s to explore and enjoy. Utilising bespoke backdrops and specially selected high-quality toys and equipment, children at St Edward’s got to fully immerse themselves in their own world - their own LITTLE CITY as part of ‘Aspirations Week’. Nursery children are our biggest observers: they have watched us as adults in the supermarket, post letters in the Post Office and style our hair. The Little City workshop enabled Seedlings pupils to be ‘grown ups’ - where nothing was off limits!
Nee Naw HQ recognises that young children love to play as it’s the thing they do best. From an early age, children love to make-believe and pretend play is a key learning element; it allows kids to explore and make sense of their world. Therefore, St Edward’s booked Nee Naw HQ as part of our aspirations week for the EYFS setting (Reception classes) as we wanted to fire up St Edward’s children's creativity and awaken their imagination, as well as helping the children build their self-confidence and strengthen their brains and bodies. The Nee Naw session gave our reception ‘Little Heroes’ the most memorable, fun and unique play experience.
WOW, what an amazing first term for these students. They have been producing some OUTSTANDING work in Science from designing Solar systems and Mini Beasts puppets to researching Lewis Latimer and Rocks. Congratulations to these students who have been standout Scientists this term!
The Children Commonwealth Choir performed two songs at the Guildhall. It was a magnificent evening and a beautiful end to our academic year.
The children choir have a long stint this week performing over four night for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations (5th to 7th July), staring with 4th July full dress rehearsal. They sang beautifully and the evening events were superb.
