One of our parents is a key worker at New Cross. She wanted to express her thanks for the posters and cards that the key workers' children have made.

"The pictures have made me cry they are just beautiful.
I will make sure each and every one is displayed. Thank you!

From all the NhS staff and patients."

As we reach what is often the most refreshing school holiday, we are faced with some of the most challenging circumstances our country has seen in recent times.

In our schools, we are doing our best to ensure opportunities for learning are always available on our website and continually brought up to date. We continue to keep Elston Hall open for our ‘Trust’ front line workers and vulnerable families. We have moved to use the Government Voucher Scheme for Free School Meal families to begin after Easter.

I am very grateful to staff from all our schools across the Trust who are contributing to these efforts alongside the personal concerns this brings.

We will continue to review our current procedures and ensure we reflect any national changes and expectations. We do ensure that our ‘school email’ is monitored daily so please use this as a way to keep in touch, ask questions and check things out. While each school’s website remains central in our communication with you all.

Our schools are missing their children, our teachers are too – we just hope like everyone else that we can be back to normal as soon as possible.

All staff in our Trust would join me in these sentiments - Where possible, we hope you are able to enjoy some of this Easter Holiday with your family.

Year 5 and 6 were lucky to receive a session from Project Give. Both the girls and the boys learnt more about periods, got interactive with sanitary products and had many opportunities to ask questions. The girls were even lucky enough to receive a free goodie bag. All the children were a credit and were extremely mature. We'd like to thank the ladies for giving up their time and supporting our school with this, as well as donating many products to us.

We had a great time when Paul from the Wolverhampton music school came to visit us. The day started with a fun filled whole school assembly involving singing with actions to match. The children were buzzing with excitement when heading back to class.
Year 4 and 5 were lucky enough to take part in workshops with Paul. Smiles and laughter were in abundance when taking part in a variety of activities including; keeping rhythm, learning pitch, matching melodies, playing instruments and singing songs. Such a fantastic experience.

All of Team Edwards wore their pyjamas and were excited for the children to see the den they had created! 

Children also came to school in their pj's and were able to spend time listening to and reading stories in the den - it felt like a giant sleepover!

 

 

 

 

 

Throughout the day children enjoyed sharing a book with their friends.

 

 

A special World Book Day Menu too!

Children in Year 4 have really enjoyed learning practical bike skills and how to stay safe on the roads.
