19 children from the year group took part and truly enjoyed the experience. They have increased their knowledge of road and bike safety whilst impressing staff with the array of fantastic bikes and helmets. Well done Year 4.

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

On Friday 8th March, the children and staff celebrated World Book Day.  The theme for this year was 'Classical Authors'.  Each class chose a classical author and book to learn about during the week finishing with World Book Day where they children and staff had to dress as a character from the book.  Examples included P.L Travers - Mary Poppins, Charles Dickens - Oliver Twist and Enid Blyton - The Secret Seven.  The focus for Early Year was 'Fairy Tales'.  
The children, staff and families did an incredible job with their spectacular outfits.  We really have some fantastic creativity within our school!

The children in Early Years had a wonderful time learning all about how to cross the road safely. The Lollipop Lady taught us all how to use a zebra crossing safely and we had lots of fun dressing up and acting out different roles. We especially enjoyed singing ‘The Road Safety Song’.

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.

Year 5 had the opportunity to go to Cosford Air Museum to develop their understanding of the Battle of Britain. During the visit they were also able to enjoy some activities that linked to their science unit on forces - which they loved. It was a fantastic experience which all the children thoroughly enjoyed. The gasps of wonder and surprise were a pleasure to hear. They were a credit to the school and showed how much they had taken on board from our history unit. One child exclaimed "I didn't expect it to be so interesting". Well done year 5!
