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.
Parent Consultation Evening takes place on Wednesday 17th October and Thursday 18th October. If you have not yet made an appointment please return your appointment slip as soon as possible as this is a great opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and share any relevant information regarding their learning. We look forward to seeing you.
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!
