Our netball team made up of Year 4/5/6 pupils thoroughly enjoyed representing our school in the first Inter-Trust Netball tournament.
Such great encouragement, effort and teamwork went into each game.
The children thrived from representing their school - most for the first ever time!
They were awarded 3rd place.
Well done children, so proud of you!
Great teamship shown from all players! Super proud to see their efforts across all 4 matches to finish 3rd.
Edward the Elder took part in their first netball match against St Thomas' C of E Primary School. They worked well as a team and should be proud of themselves. A big well done to all of them!
Year 4 enjoying sports day!
The sun was shining, proud parents were watching and children were enjoying themselves. The right ingredients for a SUPER Sports Day!
Children took part in a sprint, an obstacle race, javelin throwing and a sprint whilst holding a bat and a ball.
Well done to everyone in Year 1 for taking part and most importantly having fun!
Year 6 enjoying Sports Day
Year 3 having fun on Sports Day
The children developed their skills over a 6 week block, gained confidence, learnt new skills and learnt about how to keep safe on the roads. Some children even learnt how to ride a bike! The final sessions ended with a Go Ride race where the children were awarded medals and certificates in a ceremony. The sessions are sponsored by HSBC and Chris Hoy.
After coming third in the West Midlands Regional Heat, our fantastic dancers made it through to the The Great Big Dance Off Final in Oxford on Tuesday 4th June 2019. The children performed to the song ‘Survivor’ to an outstanding standard! They were truly incredible to watch and we are so very proud of them. Thank you to all the children, their families and teachers for working so hard, it certainly paid off! Out of 30 schools, our talented dancers ranked 5th! The children worked amazingly well together as a team but they couldn’t have done it without Miss Jones, who choreographed the fantastic routine.
Ready for rehearsals!
A fantastic game played by both teams. Taking the lead in the first half 2-0 we knew we were in for a great afternoon!
The team rotated players continuously which supported their teamship skills.
After coming in at half time Mr Smith discussed keeping focused and making sure our heads were not to go down if the opposition were to score against us.
Woden then came back into the game with some out of this word strikes not even Jordan could save. The boys kept their heads held high even when going down 4-3. With seconds to spare, we scored a late equaliser ending the game 4-4. A fair result. I would like to say a huge thank you to the children' s older siblings who came to not only support their younger brothers but the whole team, continuously providing encouragement and support. We are proud to have had you as a part of our school and to see you have grown into mature supportive young men.
Well done Edward the Elder
Edward the Elder football squad are enjoying a busy period involving three games in three weeks.
Our first of the three was against Oak Meadow Primary school.
After a wet afternoon, we got the go ahead for the game. A combination of Year 3, 5 and 6 boys represented the school in this game. A slow start for the boys followed as 3 wonder goals by Oak Meadow were scored in the first 8 minutes. The boys heads did not go down, they dug deep and scored two goal enabling us to go in at half time 3-2. Following regrouping and a team talk led by Mr Smith, the team were ready to go back out there and pull another goal back. Within 5 minutes we were back in the game drawing 3-3. This pattern of falling behind and then catching up continued until we were again drawing at 4-4. Unfortunately the game ended 6-4 to Oak Meadow, but a great game played by all. The boys are now showing a clear understanding of playing as a team. At the end of the match Oak Meadow's teacher came over and complimented our team as a whole. This was an amazing way to boost the boys confidence and embed their understanding of sportsmanship. It was lovely to see the growing amount of children, parents and staff that came to support our Football team.
Third place takes us through to the final!
A massive well done to all who took part!
Super proud of all our little performers!
Rehearsals complete! Everyone working hard! Ready to smash it tonight at Birmingham Alexandra Theatre in The Great Big Dance Off!

The game began with a little disappointment as Edwards went down 1-0 very early on. All of the team kept their heads held high and remained positive. This included those on the bench who were cheering alongside staff. When the half time whistle blew the score was yet to change. The children had a positive team talk with the more experienced children coaching alongside Soccer 2000.
The second half was when ALL of the action started, goal after goal began flying into the net. The team were communicating more and playing like part of an established team. Parents, Staff and children watching were excited and extremely enthusiastic as every goal was scored. Edwards finished the game winning 5-1 which is more than impressive!
St Stephen's staff were very quick to thank our school and compliment several of our players.
A continued fantastic start to the season.
Pride! This is the first word that comes to mind after yesterday's football game. The first game of the season was full of excitement. Our boys did themselves and our school proud! After going 1:0 down in the first minute, the boys didn't let their heads go down and dug deep to lead for the majority of the game. The game ended 4 all, with 4 amazing goals scored by our boys - not to mention some mind blowing saves. Fantastic effort made by all and superb sportsmanship shown. A huge thank you to all the support from staff, parents and pupils. Well done Edward The Elder Football squad!
