Having a short school week means that we have packed a lot in!
We have held our Talent Show auditions every lunchtime. I have been so proud of all the performers. We have been ballet, gymnastics, pianists, violinists, singers and more! There is some amazing talent at St Edmund’s. Now the difficult decision; choosing the facts that will go through to the final on 26th May. It should be a great day and a lovely opportunity to celebrate our talented children!
Yesterday we were joined by Father Jonathan for a very successful learning walk, looking at learning and teaching in PSHE and RSE across the school. The children really enjoy these lessons and through drama, role play and discussions they approached some interesting topics: appropriate and inappropriate behaviour, body privacy and touch, puberty, resilience and how our thoughts and feeling have an impact on our actions.
Year 3 celebrated Japanese Children’s Day yesterday; a day to celebrate children’s personalities and happiness. They were dressed in red and white and really enjoying making Koi carp flags and trying some Japanese food. You can see them above, in their wonderful Japanese costumes.
Today we have had our Coronation celebrations: an assembly led by Chertsey Museum, picnic lunch and a royal mufti day! During the assembly, we talked about our new King, his succession to the throne and the forty-three monarchs that have reigned before him. We decided to have an indoor picnic as the weather was looking very changeable and the ground rather damp. The children still enjoyed it! There were some wonderful costumes today, lots of kings and queens and very colourful outfits! We hope that this will be a weekend to remember, we are part of history!
I hope that everyone enjoys the Coronation weekend.
