October 2018

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!

Congratulations to the children who have been chosen for merit. Keep it up!

 

 

On the 28th September, the children and staff celebrated Harvest.  The amount of donations exceeded our expectations.  Each class participated in the Harvest celebrations performing stories, songs and poems.  The donations that we have received will now be distributed to Black Country Women's Aid.  Thank you again to our families for their support.

September 2018

Y6 visited Morrells Wood Farm where they were given a guided tour of the farm which involved a close encounter with the cows (which Taylor was able to name one of them Valentine due to a heart shape on her head!) as well as learning where the different parts of beef come from. We identified different berries in the hedge-row, as well as learning about the straw/hay and silage, and the everyday running of the farm.
We were also lucky enough to work with a professional chef, where we learnt different skills to use in the kitchen as well as knife techniques. We prepared and cooked our own lunch which consisted of vegetable soup and apple & rhubarb crumble. It all was delicious!
Finally, we were able to get up close which 5 day old chicks and quails! A special experience.
Behaviour was impeccable throughout the day - very proud teachers!

We received a lovely letter from the West Midlands Farm Discovery Coordinator which we would like to share with you!

"Yesterday, I helped deliver a Year 6 farm visit at Morrells Wood, and I wanted to let you know how impressed I was by the positive, helpful attitude of the staff and the exemplary behaviour of the children; they listened and followed all instructions, were so kind and thoughtful when handling 5 day old chicks, they displayed unstinting politeness throughout the day, asked lots of questions, were joyful to talk with and Kane was so helpful with clearing away after dinner.  I felt I could trust the children which I think speaks volumes.  It was the best visit the farmer and I have been involved with. 
 The staff and children were an absolute credit to the school and I hope we will work together again in the future."

 

 

 

The 4th October 2018 is School Census Day, so we would like to encourage as many children as possible to have a school lunch on that day.  The more children that have a lunch on that day means we will get more funding to put towards learning resources for your children.

 

 

 

 

Year 3 have been having fun with their science learning.

They explored making their own skeletons using twigs and sticks in the outdoors. They then compared their creations with an actual skeleton, before moving on to naming the different bones.

 

 

 

 

  

 

Summer holidays are nearly over! We hope our families have had a happy one, and we look forward to seeing the children safely back in school on Wednesday 5th September!

All the staff at Edward the Elder would like to wish our Year 6 pupils all the very best in their new Secondary schools. You have now been given the firm foundations on which to build your successes, so make sure you believe in yourselves and aim high, as the sky really is the limit! Good luck children!
