A busy week with sports and sunshine...
What beautiful weather we have had this week! We are now well into the term and September is moving fast. We have had the whole school in full time this week and the Year R children have settling in brilliantly, it feels as if they have always been here. We are loving getting to know them all!
We have had our first school council meeting and updated the display board in the hall with the new pictures. They are all excited about their new role and have great ideas for ways to improve school life already. We are planning our School Council trip to the Houses of Parliament next month. Here are the new School Counciloors pictured above.
The children had their school photographs yesterday, they all looked very smart and the photographers took their time to ensure that the children were relaxed and looking their best, we hope that you are pleased with them, I think you will be!
Next week Year 6 is on a big adventure to 'Outdoor Adventure' in Bude for their residential trip. It’s going to be an amazing week and such a wonderful start to their final year at St Edmund’s. We know it will be a week of learning new skills, facing exciting challenges, teamwork and cooperation: a week they will remember for the rest of their lives! I can’t wait to spend it with them and although I’m not sure the weather will be as good as it has been, we’ll make the best of being beside the sea. Have a look at the website here for a taste of what they are up to: https://www.outdooradventure.co.uk/school-residentials/
We had our annual Deanery Mass yesterday after school, it is always a lovely opportunity to come together as a group of schools to welcome new staff, catch up with colleagues and start the new school year together in prayer. We were talking afterwards about other ways in which we can support and work more closely with one another.
Year 5 kicked off our class celebration assemblies this morning with a very special assembly looking at friendship. They have had very little time to prepare but were brilliant. They had so many lines, poems and songs to learn and every child knew exactly want to do and say. I was very impressed by how sensible and grown up the children have become. Thank you Year 5.
Have a lovely weekend,
