Year 2’s Super Harvest Assembly

This morning we were treated to a wonderful Harvest assembly by the boys and girls in Year 2.

We were reminded about how lucky we all are to have enough food to eat and a place to live, unlike so many people in the world today.

The boys and girls told us all how important it is to try and help people who are less fortunate than ourselves; each class then brought up their Harvest envelopes which they have generously filled with money to help these people.

Many thanks also for your kind donations to the Broxbourne Foodbank which will go to help those less fortunate than ourselves in the local community. 

Thank you and well done to all of the boys and girls in Year 2 for sharing their lovely assembly with us and thanks to Mrs Ramsay and Mrs Cina for preparing them so well…and of course to the sound engineer, Mrs Pisaturo!

Afternoon Tea Is Served!

This afternoon our new Chaplaincy Team ventured to the Parish Hall to serve Afternoon Tea for the over 60s at the Parish Centre…and it was a great first ‘gig’! 

All of the boys and girls were extremely courteous and really looked after everyone present…including providing ‘top ups’ and biscuits galore!

As well as serving the over 60s so diligently, the boys and girls also tidied/washed up…take note parents!

Next time, by popular request, the Chaplaincy Team will have a little repertoire of songs to perform for their audience…over to you Mrs Skelton and Miss Gunn!

Wow Walkers!

Four children from Years 5 and 6 extended their Wow walking from Wednesday to Sunday when they gave up a couple of hours yesterday afternoon to join Father John on his sponsored walk for the Night Shelter.

Fortunately the weather had brightened up after a very unpromising start first thing, so it was a pleasant walk in the sunshine.  All four children walked the five miles with enthusiasm and were still full of energy at the end!

Two of them even managed a bit of litter picking on the walk home (that’s this week’s Year 5 home learning task covered then, as well as helping the environment).

Well done to all four children for their efforts.  I’m sure Father John is looking forward to receiving all your sponsor money!

Flying Fish!

A big thank you to Mr. Hunter for making our fabulous fish sculptures fly!!

And they are great company for ‘Finley’ our fish who is now in situ in the School Hall with his flying friends!

 Indeed…the School Hall feels a little bit like an aquarium now!

Strider at his best!

I hope everyone enjoyed meeting our new friend Strider on the playground yesterday morning.  He wanted to leave us with a nice memory of him to encourage us all to get active when we’re travelling to school over the next year.

Parent Partnership Handwriting Workshop

This morning we hosted our second Parent Workshop as part of our new Parent Partnership with a focus on handwriting. Once again, the workshop was a great success with lots of parents in attendance.

After an introductory talk from Mrs Ramsay outlining our handwriting policy and the importance of neat presentation and the use of a flowing cursive script, parents were given the opportunity to see the ‘theory in action’ as they visited their child’s class to share in a handwriting session.

Thank you to all of those parents who were able to attend today’s workshop; we are holding a wide variety of workshops during the course of the term to which you are all invited.

Thank you for your continued support.

WOW Launch

As some of you may already know, this morning saw the launch of our new WOW project which is a year-long project to encourage us all to walk (or cycle, or scoot) to school instead of using the car. 

We aim to become fitter and improve the air quality in our area at the same time.  Strider came with our visitor Mrs Stanton who came to help promote this exciting project.  He enjoyed meeting our children as they arrived at school in the playground this morning.  The WOW project will run all year and children who actively travel to school at least once every week will receive a badge at the end of each month. 

I wonder if anyone can collect them all!  Happy walking everyone.

Amazing Artists

Today the Arts Ambassadors and some other lucky children visited St. Edmund’s Prep School for an Art Day. 

Mrs. Roper helped us to create some amazing fish sculptures which will be hanging up in our school hall very soon – look out for them next time you visit us for Mass.

Our children were beautifully behaved and represented our school really well.  I was so proud of the way all the groups worked together to create their withie sculptures. 

Huge thanks must go to Mrs. Roper and all the staff at St. Edmund’s for giving us this fantastic experience.  We look forward to continuing our association as we work towards Gold Artsmark.
