Year 4 really enjoyed making fruit smoothies, but with a twist. Children firstly made fruit kebabs and ate them. After that, they then got to choose what fruit they wanted in their fruit smoothies, it got put in a blender. Now here comes the twist... Children had to pedal on a bike for the smoothie to work, the more they pedalled the nicer the smoothie. They then got to drink their smoothie. Mmmm!

All of our children in Nursery and Reception have enjoyed ‘Cultural Week’ so much!
We have shared ‘Show and Tell’ objects from home from different countries and cultures.
We have made and tasted delicious chapatis with Miss Bhella and created beautiful Mendhi hand patterns too.
Best of all we dressed in clothes from India and danced and made Indian music together.
What another wonderful week of fun and learning!

What a wonderful week we have had here at Edward the Elder!
We started our week with a special launch assembly to promote ‘Acts of Kindness’ within school.
Each class chose kind acts from their jars during the week which resulted in so many compliments, smiles, helpful deeds and even hugs!
Everyone took part in ‘kindness’ learning in their classrooms and brought in their own completed ‘Acts of Kindness Rainbows’ from home…these were absolutely fabulous to share together!
Staff also received some fantastic acts of kindness from other staff and even parents…Thank you so much!
Class teachers nominated one pupil per class to be awarded their ‘Act of Kindness Award Winner’ for the week and all of these pupils received special certificates to celebrate their achievements.
Keep it up everyone…let’s keep the kindness going every day!

The Sun newspaper have launched a scheme entitled The Sun: Books for schools in partnership with Collins Big Cat. This scheme gives schools the chance to receive 106 books worth over £600! Our school has registered for the campaign and we would love it if you could help! Please ask friends and family to collect the tokens from The Sun newspaper which will be available from Saturday 23rd November, up to and including Saturday 18th January. We need a total of 3500 tokens to qualify for the books! It sounds a lot but multiple tokens will be up for grabs on a daily basis (including their Sunday newspaper!) All tokens must be originals – they will not accept photocopies!

Please send any tokens you collect into school by Friday 24th January so that we have ample time to post them as they will not be accepted if they are late!

Year 3 parents enjoyed coming into school to use the school library.
The children and parents looked at different books before deciding on a book to take home and share together.
We look forward to hearing all about the books that were taken home and looking at your 'Reading Together' posters.

 

  

We look forward to seeing their poster entries where winners will be awarded a book from the book fair.
