Monday 16th November marked the start of this years ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ event. Our school were excited to join in with others around the UK to participate in Odd Socks Day!
As part of our involvement in the event within school, we asked children to come to school with odd socks on Monday 16th November. We used this day to celebrate that we are
all unique and children took part in a variety of activities linked to this theme throughout the week.

Y6 really enjoyed raising money for children in need. They completed ‘Five to thrive’ with activities including origami bookmarks, learning how to draw Pudsey and having fun in PE. A big well done to Joe Wicks too!

Year 4 enjoyed finding out about where our food comes from, but the best part of all was eating it!

We also looked at different types of foods, the processes needed to change food into what we eat as well as designing a new food bag.

A busy, but fun day of learning was had by all.



Year 6 LOVED our special Harvest Celebration Day! We learnt so much about Harvest and where our food comes from, got crafty with nature and enjoyed a delicious lunch!

All of Team Edwards wore their pyjamas and were excited for the children to see the den they had created! 

Children also came to school in their pj's and were able to spend time listening to and reading stories in the den - it felt like a giant sleepover!








Throughout the day children enjoyed sharing a book with their friends.



A special World Book Day Menu too!

The children in Nursery and Reception have really enjoyed performing their Christmas play: ‘Everyone Loves a Baby!’ From hard-working elves to Bethlehem newsreaders. From rocking angels to screaming babies… even a special flying visit from Prince Harry and Meghan! We have had so much fun singing, dancing, playing instruments and acting – the children have been the most magnificent performers and made us all extremely proud! What a wonderful way to start Christmas!

All of our children in Nursery and Reception have enjoyed ‘Cultural Week’ so much!
We have shared ‘Show and Tell’ objects from home from different countries and cultures.
We have made and tasted delicious chapatis with Miss Bhella and created beautiful Mendhi hand patterns too.
Best of all we dressed in clothes from India and danced and made Indian music together.
What another wonderful week of fun and learning!

What a wonderful week we have had here at Edward the Elder!
We started our week with a special launch assembly to promote ‘Acts of Kindness’ within school.
Each class chose kind acts from their jars during the week which resulted in so many compliments, smiles, helpful deeds and even hugs!
Everyone took part in ‘kindness’ learning in their classrooms and brought in their own completed ‘Acts of Kindness Rainbows’ from home…these were absolutely fabulous to share together!
Staff also received some fantastic acts of kindness from other staff and even parents…Thank you so much!
Class teachers nominated one pupil per class to be awarded their ‘Act of Kindness Award Winner’ for the week and all of these pupils received special certificates to celebrate their achievements.
Keep it up everyone…let’s keep the kindness going every day!
