School Closure - Learning at home

Learning At Home

Congratulations to ‘Nan May’ who has been awarded the title of Edward the Elder Primary School’s lockdown unsung hero!

Last month, school launched the competition to recognise people in the community who had gone above and beyond, or been adversely affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Nan May was nominated by grandsons Lewis and Jacob who attend  Edward the Elder. In usual times Nan May is a regular smiley face at the school gate supporting with the school run. However when lockdown hit, the then 82-year-old was forced to isolate from her family. She has never been out of work but was also placed on furlough. She was even forced to spend her 83rd birthday in isolation. 

As an extra special treat to cheer her up, we decided to surprise her on her doorstep with her giant Easter egg prize, which was donated earlier this year by Vicon Ltd. 

We had more than 30 entries across school for the lockdown unsung hero title. Thanks to donations from the school community before lockdown, everyone who entered received a small ‘runner-up’ treat to give to their nominated hero.

Lucie Davies nominated her Dad who is a police officer: he won second prize. Charlie Evans nominated his Mum who is a carer and has continued to look after her family throughout lockdown; she won third prize. 

Well done everyone – truly deserved winners!
