Staff at Edwards filled 27 boxes for charity in collaboration with Wednesfield Rotary Club.
These were filled with toiletries and other essential items to be distributed around the community of Wednesfield.
They were gratefully received by Reverent Fish for Ashmore Park Foodbank.
Well done Edwards staff – another fantastic success!
Well done to one of our children in Reception who was shortlisted as one of seven winners for the MP's Christmas Card Competition. His design has been printed on the back of the MP's card for this year.
He received a special letter and gifts all the way from the House of Commons – along with a visit from MP Jane Stevenson.
We are extremely proud of you - well done!
Thank you to Edward the Elder School Council for presenting a wonderful Harvest Celebration Assembly!
We found out where food comes from and all about foods which are healthy for us to eat.
All of the food which was generously donated by our parents, carers and children was carefully packed by our School Council representatives and sent to our local Moathouse Foodbank to support families in our community.
Thank you everyone for you care and generosity!
Years 5 and 6 had their first annual session with the PCSO this afternoon - today's focus being Internet Safety. The children learnt all about how to keep safe online, including information about privacy settings. The children asked lots of sensible questions and the answers added to their bank of knowledge on the subject.
We would like to send a huge ‘THANK YOU!’ to Wednesfield Rotary Club for their wonderful donation of £500 which has allowed us to purchase brand new thesauruses for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and also a set of beautifully illustrated Spanish dictionaries for all of the pupils across school to use.
The children are thrilled and very, very grateful!
Thank you to families for joining us at our Christmas Fair - it was such a wonderful event! We raised £489 for schools funds which is fantastic - thank you! A big thank you to the friends of the school for all their help with organising and running the event - it is always appreciated! The raffle with continue throughout the Christmas performances.
Children from across Elston Hall Multi-Trust Academy performed their piece to ‘Speechless’ which reflects the importance to never underestimate the power of a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, or the smallest act of caring. We have two ears and one mouth, so we should listen more than we say. We have within us, the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world one small step at a time.
The children were fabulous and made us all proud.
We celebrated a lovely assembly for Harvest at Edwards with Reverend Nick. Many thanks to all our families who contributed, it was much appreciated.
Year 5 enjoyed two visits from our local Police Community Support Officer. During these visits, she discussed e-safety and antisocial behaviour as well as other elements. The children were engaged throughout and were clearly surprised and intrigued by some of the information they were told. They were very appreciative and listened carefully throughout.
Year 3 and 4 were joined by a Police Community Support Officer, who talked with us about internet safety. Children in both year groups were intrigued with all the information shared. They all took part in a fabulous discussion detailing how to stay safe whilst using the internet at home. They have now become more vigilant and aware of how to keep their personal information private. A very informative afternoon. Edward The Elder are very appreciative with all the support we receive from our local emergency services.
