Florence Nightingale Workshop

 If you read our class blog a few weeks ago, you will know that we have been learning about Florence Nightingale and would know that there was a very special visitor in school…

Check here out this post to have a quick catch up…

We have made a video to show you just what we got up to with our special visitor. Let us know in the comments sections below what you think!


Project Homework – Summer 1 2018

At Prince Edward, we have changed the way that we complete homework.

This half term we have been learning all about Florence Nightingale and homework this half term was to create something that reflected the learning that the children had taken part in.

Here are some of Pearl class’ entries…



This superstar visited the library with her mum to learn more about Florence Nightingale!

What a fantastic effort – you really were able to bring your learning to life.

We are looking forward to seeing what next half term brings…

Premier League Primary Stars

This half term, we have been learning how to play football with Ash from Sheffield United Community Foundation. As an extra special treat, Ash came into the classroom to help us with our learning.


We looked at the values that footballers need to have on and off the pitch and how this can help us with our learning in and out of the classroom.

This values are:


We thought about what it meant to play the right way, what it means to be respectful and what qualities we would need to be a team player and/or a captain of a team. We learnt that we can’t always win but more importantly, how to react if this happens.

Thank you Ash, we had a wonderful morning and we will make sure that we are using this values when we are in the classroom.

Ice Skating at Prince Edward

We were so lucky to be able to have a portable ice rink from Ice Sheffield come to school for the day.

Each class were given time on the ice to come and practise their skills. It was such a treat and we had special boots to put on before we could go on the ice.


I’m sure that you will agree that we had a brilliant time and can’t wait to get back on the ice!

Excellent Behaviour

On our way back from our trip to the English Institute of Sport, the tram was very busy, crowded and full of passengers.

The following day, we received this email and felt very proud of ourselves.


Good Afternoon,

I have just had the privilege of meeting some of your students from Year 2 and your teachers/helpers.

The children were impeccably behaved and had good manners, followed instructions, and listened well. They also kept noise to a minimum.

I have twin babies and the children were great at keeping a distance, not touching.

I spoke with a little girl called ‘Summer’. If she is a reflection of the students at your school, you should be very very proud.

I just wanted to say compared with another school I had the unfortunate pleasure of meeting on the way to Meadowhall… your children were amazing.

My little girl attends Sacred Heart Catholic School and I’d like to think they behave like your children.

With kindest regards
Mrs Laura Holmes
We are role models and ambassadors of our school when we attend trips out of school and we strive to make sure that our behaviour matches that of our behaviour in school. Thank you for your email, it was fabulous to hear from you!
