Mother’s Day 2018

On Friday 9th March, FS and KS1 held a special assembly for our mummies, nannans, grandmas, aunties and sisters to show them just how special they are to us!


Every class sing a song and then our final song, we sang altogether. At the end of all of our singing, we got to go and see our adults to go and give them a special treat!


Thank you for all that you do for us! We love you all very much!

Pearl class would like to wish everyone a very happy Mother’s Day today! We hope that you are being spoilt and are having a truly relaxing day!


Fairtrade Fortnight 2018

In Pearl class, we have been learning about Fairtrade. This is something that everyone in school has been looking at and links to the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development as set out by the United Nations.

First we looked at what Fairtrade actually is:

  • Trade that is fair
  • People and countries sell things to each other and farmers sell the crops that they grow.
  • Soemtimes trade isn’t always fair. Big companies and rich countries buy a lot of crops from poor countries but they don’t always want ot pay a fair price for the goods.
  • Fairtrade buyers want to make things better for farmers and they agree to pay farmers a fair price for their crops.

Then we looked asked, how does Fairtrade work?

  • Fairtrade farmers know that they will get a good price for their goods.
  • These farmers can make plans for their farms, spending money to make them better and safer.
  • These farmers must also agree to pay their workers a fair price.
  • Fairtrade buyers pay extra money too, called a premium. This money could then be spent on building a new school, health centre or bridge over a river.

We know when goods are Fairtrade when…

If you see this symbol on products, then you know that it is Fairtrade.

Can you find this mark on anything in your house?

Where do Fairtrade products come from?

  • Fairtrade products come from countries all over the world.
  • Bananas are grown in tropical regions.
  • Cocoa to make chocolate with comes from countries such as the Ivory Coast in Africa.
  • Tea and coffee also comes from hot places.
  • Fairtrade flowers grow well in Kneya’s sunny climate.
  • Mines in South America supply glittering Fairtrade gold.

Pearl class decided that they wanted to finish the work that they had been completing on Fairtrade, by having a Fairtrade Tea Party. They decided what they wanted at the tea party and then sent Miss Varley on a little shopping trip. Here is what she was able to get.


It was so lovely to complete our learning on Fairtrade with a chance to all sit down together and eat and drink some delicious foods. Cheers!


World Book Day 2018

In school, we celebrated World Book Day on Friday 2nd March. The snow tried to spoil our day but we didn’t let that from stopping us from having a fab time!


We took a walk around school to look at some of the other decorated doors…


Our fantastic World Book Day Costumes…


We even managed to get into the school library to read and share books with our friends…


The book fair will be in school next week, so why don’t you pop along with your adult and see if there are any books that take your fancy. If you still have your World Book Day £1 token, you can use it to get £1 off a book at the Book Fair.

Alternatively, you can visit your local book shop and swap your £1 token for a special World Book Day book!

Multi Skills Trip to Park Academy

As a special treat, Y1 and Y2 were invited down to Park Academy to complete some Multi Skills activites for the afternoon.


We had lots of fun, trying out lots of different activities and working together in teams.

Thank you to the adults who came to help us and Craig Malkin for organising it. We can’t wait for the next time!


Storytelling with Andy Messer… Part 2



Pride of Prince Edward

We are very proud to announce that the next Pride of Prince Edward is…


Here is the reason why:

You have been ready for this award since Reception and you are truly deserving of this award. You are a little ray of sunshine in the classroom and a pleasure to teach. You are conscientious, hard-working and an amazing friend to others. Your smiley face is a pleasure to see on a daily basis. There is nothing that you cannot do!


Christmas 2017

We have had such a busy time at school getting ready for Christmas. Take a look below to find out just what we got up to in December…

We kicked off our festive celebrations with a trip to City Hall after we were invited to the watch the Variety pantomime Aladdin and Christmas Party. We had such an amazing time, danced our socks off and even Santa popped in to say hello!

Thank you for the invite Variety.

Our grown ups were invited to come and spend the morning with us making some Christmas crafts. We really love it when our grown ups come into school and spend some time with us in the classroom. Thank you!


After weeks of practice, it was time for our Y2 Nativity Performance. We worked hard to learn the songs, rehearsed our lines and had a brilliant time putting on the nativity for our grown ups.


Here are just a few comments about what our grown ups thought…

In the last week before we broke up, it was Christmas Party and Disco afternoon. We had a wonderful time playing games, eating delicious party food and being with our friends.


On the last day of term, Santa took time out of his really busy schedule and paid us a visit! He left us a present which we can’t wait to use in the New Year.


Finally, we were very busy in the run up to Christmas, creating Christmas cards, using printing techniques to making calendars and sewing some snowmen puppets.

We have had a brilliant Autumn term in Y2 and we can’t wait to see what we will be learning about in the Spring.


We hope that you have all had a very merry Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year. See you all on Monday 8th January 2018.
