Pride of Prince Edward

Our Pride of Prince Edward from a few weeks ago 🙂

Prince Edward Headteacher's Blog

What a superstar! This little girl walks in to a room and lights it up with her big, beaming smile. She has such a great attitude to school and her learning, you wouldn’t believe she is in Reception. She gives 100% to everything she does. We are lucky to have her at Prince Edward and see her grow as she moves through school.

Special Mentions Assembly

We went to Special Mentions Assembly for the first time this week. It is always on a Friday afternoon and everyone in the whole school goes. We get to sit at the front as we’re the youngest children there.

In Special Mentions Assembly, Mr Sieczkarek and Miss French give out special mentions certificates to some of the children in school. This week we were very lucky as everyone in Onyx Class (and Garnet Class) got a certificate to say well done on such a wonderful start to full time school.

This week we will start getting individual mentions in Onyx Class. We’ll let you know if your child is getting a mention and you are invited to come to Assembly to see them receive it. I wonder who it will be! There will be 3 special mentions linked to our school values and then all the children who have earned a reading certificate as well. Look out on Thursday and Friday morning to see if its your child. It will then be our turn fortnightly to get certificates in Assembly.

Wonderful World Book Day 2016

We had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day this year. There was lots going on. Our school library officially opened so we went for a look round and to borrow our very own school library book. It was great to see all the books we could borrow and choose our favourite to take home.

We all got dressed up on World Book Day and wore costumes of our favourite book characters. Look how fantastic we look. Can you guess who we are?  

We went to a whole school assembly with Andy Messer who is a storyteller. He told us a wonderful story although we all thought it was gross when the monster was being sick! It was great to be able to see everyone’s costumes in school as well.

We also went to a special session just for Onyx and Garnet class with Andy where he told us another story just for us. We then got to ask Andy some questions about the stories he tells.

And we weren’t finished there! We decorated our door with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom with everyone working hard to complete their part of the tree or the their letter to climb up the tree. We had a look at everyone else’s doors round school as well.

What a busy day! We loved it though and enjoyed all the books and stories.

What have we been learning?

  • To enjoy stories and books.
  • To listen to stories.
  • To talk about the stories we hear and the books we read.
  •  To talk about our favourite books and stories. 

How can you continue the learning at home? 

  • Look at your school library book together and share the story. 
  • Visit the library at Manor Top and take a book home. 
  • Make up some stories of your own together. What’s the silliest story you can make up? What’s the scariest story you can tell? 
  • Go to the Book Shop with your World Book Day £1 book token and swap it for a free book

Books at Bedtime 2016

For the 3 weeks before half term, we ran the Books at Bedtime competition at school in FS and KS1. Everyone had to read books at bedtime for three weeks with their families and record them on the special sheets. On the last day of half term we had a PJ party to celebrate and even brought our teddies to school.

Research shows how important it is for children to have a bedtime story each night and how much children value the time with their grownups. However, there are increasing pressures on time and many families don’t have a bedtime routine which includes a story. We hope you continue the Books at Bedtime even though the competition is finished.

We held a special Assembly with Mrs Ainsley where we found out who the winner was in each class. There had been 2 winners of books at the end of Week 1 and at Week 2- thats lots of new books going home! 🙂

 

Then we had a look at lots of books with our friends from Garnet class and also Year One and Year Two. It was lots of fun.

 

Don’t forget to let us know on a WOW moment if you and your child have been sharing books and stories at home! Which is your favourite book you read together?

The Day we went to Build a Bear

This week was very exciting as we went on our first school trip. We caught the bus and went to Build a Bear Workshop at Meadowhall. This was all part of the learning we’ve been doing about Anti-Bullying Week.

Dalton was able to talk all about it….. “We came in Build a Bear and sit on the floor and we build a bear with fluff and then Elisha put clothes on it and after that we had a picture. After that we had a look at lights and after that eat dinner” 

Here are the pictures of how we got to Meadowhall. First we had to walk to the bus stop remembering what we’ve learnt about road safety when we were near the busy roads. We wore our tabards so we were bright and easy to see.

Then we could see Build a Bear Workshop! Everyone was very excited.

We went into Build a Bear Workshop and Ryan helped us to make our bear. We had to choose which type of bear we wanted and which clothes she was going to wear. We had to work as a team and vote for our favourites. We understood that we got to decide as a whole class so it might not be our first choice which was picked.

We even got to vote for our bear’s name. The winner was Millie Ethel.

Here we all are with our new friend. Can you spot her?

After we’d got our we went to look at some of the Christmas lights and we found the Lego shop as well. It made us wonder what we could make from Lego back at school.

After that we even had time for a picnic at Meadowhall with our special school sandwiches before we headed back to school.

The children were very well behaved during the visit and got a certificate on Friday in Special Mentions Assembly for being Charming Citizens and excellent ambassadors for our school.

If you want to see photos of the whole story of The Day we went to Build a Bear look out for the book in our book corner or when Millie Ethel starts coming to your homes.

A big thank you to the parents/ carers who came with us. We wouldn’t be able to go on visits without your support.

If you would like to come with us on visits, please speak to us in school and we’ll let you know when we’re going and what you need to do. 

What have we been learning? 

  • To be part of a collective team effort to build a bear. 
  • To know we have to share the bear altogether and be friends. 
  • to stay safe when we’re out near the roads and in public places. 
  • To look at and talk about the Christmas lights and everything else we saw on the day. 

What can you do to continue the learning at home? 

  • Go on visits with your child to different places in Sheffield. There are lots of places you can go for free such as The Winter Gardens, Weston Park Museum and Ecclesall Woods or Norfolk Park. Talk about how these places are the same and different to other places you have been. 
  • Continue to remind your child about road safety when near roads and refer to when we go places with school. All the children we’re brilliant when we went as a class. 
  • Look out for the bear coming to your home after Christmas for the weekend or a couple of nights!!!!

Road Safety Day

Some of our Key Stage 2 children organised a Road Safety Day on November 6th. It is really important to think about staying safe near the roads all the time but especially now when its getting dark so early. We were asked to come to school dressed in as many bright colours as we could find.

We talked about Road Safety when we had a special visitor come to talk to use about staying safe on the roads so we worked hard to remember what we had talked about before.

At the end of the school day we went to the whole school Assembly where those of us who were dressed up got to walk on the special catwalk. We had the whole school watching us and then we got to watch them and see what they were wearing. Someone in our class even won a whole school prize for the best costume.
