Theme Days

December 2019

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!

Year 3 parents enjoyed coming into school to use the school library.
The children and parents looked at different books before deciding on a book to take home and share together.
We look forward to hearing all about the books that were taken home and looking at your 'Reading Together' posters.

 

  

 We look forward to seeing their poster entries where winners will be awarded a book from the book fair.

The children in Early Years thoroughly enjoyed their Father’s Day celebrations this year! We shared activities such as biscuit-decorating, role play, outdoor fun and creative tasks with our Dads, Grandads, Uncles and big Brothers.  Our staff enjoyed sharing pictures and stories about their own Dads and then it was time to ‘cuddle up’ and enjoy a special story. 
All of our grown-ups loved the special medals they were given by the little ones! What another amazing day!

All of the children in Nursery and Reception took part in a ‘Road Safety Workshop, and had lots of fun whilst learning how to stay safe! We dressed up as School Crossing Patrols and Police Officers and enjoyed lots of role play and learning. We sang a song about how to stay safe as we cross the road. What a fantastic day!

What a fantastic way to end such a super term!  All of the children in Nursery and Reception took part in a wonderful Easter Bonnet Parade and did such an amazing job.
Parents and carers helped the children to make their bonnets at home and we were astounded by their creativity!  Family and friends were invited to watch their children proudly parade their bonnets and we all had a great deal of fun! Everyone received a special certificate to celebrate their marvellous efforts.
