This afternoon year 6 worked alongside Wednesfield Rotary Club to plant crocus bulbs at the front of school. The Rotary have been working hard for many years to try to eliminate Polio across the world. Soon they hope it will be non-existent and that the vaccine will continue to protect people. The purple of the crocus represents the mark left on a nail following the vaccination.
Last Monday, Edwards and Elston had their annual derby game, we all wondered which school would take the win this year. The game began very evenly with Elston taking the lead early on. After a wonder goal late in the first half Edwards were able to even the score. The teams started the second half off 1:1 with both teams doing all they could to prevent goals entering their nets. In the dying minutes of the game Elston took advantage and scored the winning goal. A fantastic game supported by staff and parents from both schools. A great fixture.

On Friday 16th November, the pupils and staff celebrated Children In Need day. The theme was 'Crazy Hair' and the children really did go that extra mile to showcase their crazy hair. A huge thank you to everyone's super efforts to raise awareness of Children In Need.
Edward the Elder and Goldthorn Park were two of the ten schools from across Wolverhampton to be selected to feature on the Mayor of Wolverhampton’s Christmas Card for 2018. Two children from each school went to Bantock Park for the special photo shoot with the Mayor and Mayoress, they were then treated to refreshments, which everyone enjoyed!
Keep a look out for the Mayor’s Christmas Card.
Children spent the day completing activities so they could learn about and understand the significance of the day. Some of our children had the opportunity to attend the Wolverhampton Schools Remembrance Service and marched through the city centre alongside veterans and soldiers. The photograph below shows School Council with Reverend Nick Watson.
We hope you have had a wonderful half term break and we look forward to seeing the children safely back in school on Monday 5th November.
As well as our regular poppies on sale, this year we are also selling poppy themed items: Reflector 50p, Rubber Wristband 50p and Bracelet with a suggested donation of £1.00. Children from the School Council will continue to sell these poppy themed items during the first week back after half term.

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.
