HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

In this Sunday’s Gospel we will read about the Good Samaritan. In this parable, Jesus teaches us that our neighbour is any person who needs our help, regardless of who they are or where they come from. This is a message that is relevant to us in our lives today - we can change the world through loving and serving our neighbours.

This week has been a very busy one at St. Edward’s - we celebrated our Summer Party, our year six students partied at their Leavers’ Disco, we enjoyed a fantastic end of year production by our year 6 children, class 3 went on an exciting trip to the ‘Chicken Shed’ in Hyde Park, classes 7 and 8 visited Westminster Cathedral and class 11 made the most of the brilliant weather by enjoying a picnic and art in Hyde Park.

I wish to say a very special thank you to Miss Holly Freiter and Waitrose for their generous donation of ice lollies that the children enjoyed at the summer party yesterday - they were delicious! A thank you from the whole school to all the parents who helped out at the party.

Please enjoy the photos of the various events below - the lovely pictures are courtesy of Wu Photography.

Next week we prepare to say farewell and good luck to our Year Six children with a special Leavers’ Mass and Assembly - Year 6 parents are warmly invited to join us for both these events.

End of year class parties are taking place on Thursday 18th July.  Children are allowed to bring one snack for themselves and one non fizzy soft drink for themselves to have during the afternoon. 

Our year 5 parents will be starting to think about Secondary Transfer as the deadline for these applications is 31st October 2019. Below is information regarding open events at Maria Fidelis and Westminster Academy. I urge parents to please start researching by visiting individual secondary school websites for detailed information on their application processes.

A reminder that end of year reports will be sent out on Monday.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Miss Clare O’Connor

In Class 13, we are preparing for our Year 6 leavers assembly with Class 14. As our time at St Edward's is shortly coming to an end, we are taking time to reflect on our religious journey throughout primary school. We have reflected on our achievements, successes, highs and lows and the spiritual life lessons that we have learnt along the way. As we look towards the future, we may be nervous about secondary school and the future ahead, but we know that God has big plans for each and everyone of us and He will be with us every step of the way.

HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

On Sunday, as we listen to the Gospel we will be reminded that Jesus came to establish God’s kingdom so that we all can share in God’s healing love and peace. When we welcome Jesus into our lives and try to live as he taught us, God’s kingdom grows within our hearts.

On Monday 8th July children will have the opportunity to spend part of the day with their new class teachers in their new classes. I know staff and children alike are eager to get to know each other ahead of the new academic year.

Other events happening next week are:

Year 6 End of Year Production on Wednesday 10th at 2:00pm - Parents and families of our year 6 pupils are very warmly invited to come along and watch their production of Rock Bottom. The children and year 6 staff team have been rehearsing and preparing really hard and we are looking forward to seeing their performance!

Summer Party on Thursday 11th - the whole school will enjoy an afternoon of fun, games and sporting activities. This is a highlight on the St. Edward’s calendar and a celebration for the children to thank them for their hard work and good effort through the year. A very big thank to all parents who have volunteered to help out on the day - your help is invaluable and we could not have the party without you!

Year 6 Leavers’ Disco on Thursday 11th from 4:30 - 6:30pm - our year 6 children will enjoy an evening of dancing.

Lastly, but not least, there has been an increase in the number of lost property items. Next week from Monday to Wednesday these items will be in the KS2 playground after school for parents to claim.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Miss Clare O’Connor

The children were very impressed with the school and were excited about the prospect of one day being in Secondary school. Well done to Class 11 and Class 12 for their good behaviour and manners during the visit - and for working so hard during the lessons!

On Thursday 4th July, Year 6 had a wonderful opportunity to visit York House for the Young Readers Program. At York House, Year 6 were separated and put into groups to do a range of different and fun activities- listening to exciting poems being read to us, creating our own bookmark and even got to choose our own book to keep! At the end, my group got creative by using straws, sticks and blue tack to create a structure of our own design. My favourite part of the trip was getting my own free book to take home to keep! I had the best day! Selena (Class 13)

RE CORNER

gp.jpg

This term in Class 9 we are studying God's people. It is really interesting because we learn about people who were just ordinary, but as they followed God footsteps they became Holy.

We are understanding that every single of us is important in a different way and all of us can go around the world, in our houses and school and spread the Good News. We did a lesson about Saints and we researched about St Francis of Assis, St Edward, St George and Saint Lourdes. Their life stories are very fascinating, as we learnt all about the miracles they performed on Earth.

In class 11 our topic is ‘Freedom and Responsibility’. We have been learning about the importance of being responsible even when we wish to have freedom in life. We studied the Ten Commandments and discussed which commandment we thought was the most important to follow. We wrote some beautiful prayers asking God for support and reflected on the meaning and actions behind the Beatitudes from Jesus at the Sermon on the Mount. As we move into Year 6 this topic is particularly important as we recognise the need to show maturity in the choices we make and the responsibility we have for ourselves and each other.

HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

This Sunday we will celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi and we will hear in the Gospel of the miracle where Jesus fed five thousand people with just five loaves and two fish. As Jesus fed those people then, he still feeds and nourishes us today when we receive Holy Communion. Listening to the Word of God keeps our faith strong and nourished.

This week has been a very active week with both KS2 and EYFS enjoying their sports days . I was so pleased to see how our children gave their all in the events and I was very impressed with the level of athleticism displayed. Please see below for some brilliant photos of the KS2 sports day courtesy of Wu Photographers - thank you. EYFS photographs will be in next week’s newsletter.

KS1 will be taking part in their sports day on Tuesday - children to please wear PE kit and trainers. Events start at 9:30 and families are warmly invited to cheer children on. I look forward to seeing you there.

Our school council have been working with Mrs Moon and Mr Abbas on selecting new playground equipment for our children to enjoy during break times. They got to try out the new games today, we have had fun bowling, playing sticky catch and juggling among other activities and the feedback from all year groups is really positive!

A reminder to parents who have children joining our Reception and Nursery classes in September that the induction meeting will be taking place on Wednesday 26th June at 2:00pm. You will be given further starting information as well as a date for a 1:1 meeting with your child’s future class teacher. Representatives from our uniform supplier, Ace Clothing, will also be available to enable you to view uniform/sizes and order if you so wish.

We will be experiencing some very hot weather next week. Please remember to apply sunscreen, wear a sun hat and bring a bottle of water to school.

Have a lovely weekend!

Class 3 has had a lot of fun practicing and finally getting to perform our assembly for an audience this week! The comments we received were very positive and we couldn't be more proud of their efforts. Maybe we'll see some of them on the West End in the future. We used our best voices to relay a very important message to as many people as we can. That message is - the planet is for everyone to share and we need to keep it healthy and beautiful. I know that in class 3 we have learned a lot about what we can do to help the planet. Even though you are still children we all still have a role to play. All that Mother Earth is asking is that we all our mindful of keeping the planet healthy and we try to do our part. Even the smallest actions add up and make a difference. Let's make sure the planet is a beautiful place for us and for future generations.

HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

This coming Sunday we will be celebrating the feast of The Most Holy Trinity - reminding us that in God there are three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Saint Patrick used a shamrock to illustrate the mystery of the Trinity: it has three leaves but is it just one plant - just as within one God, there are three divine persons who love and guide us.

I am happy to inform you that Father Lorenzo has confirmed our celebration of First Holy Communion Mass to mark the commitment made by children who have celebrated their First Holy Communion this year. Families are invited to join us on Monday 1st July at 2:00pm in the top hall. If your child has made their Communion this year, please let the school office know as we would like to include them in this special occasion.

On Tuesday 19th June all children in year 3, 4, 5 and 6 will be taking part in their sports day. We will be leaving the school at 9:30am to make our way on foot to Regent’s Park Athletics Track. Parents are welcome to join us on the walk or meet us at the running track. The day will consist of organised track and field events and of course we will be having a tug of war and parent races! Please make sure children are dressed in full PE kit, wearing trainers, have applied sunscreen, have a sun hat, plenty of water to drink and a packed lunch. We will keep an eye on the weather so in case it is rainy, please dress for the weather. I look forward to seeing you there!

Nursery and Reception will have their sports day on Friday 21st June and KS1 children on Tuesday 25th June at the school. Events start at 9:30am. Families are warmly invited to come along to cheer the children on and join in!

A reminder to parents who have children joining our Reception and Nursery classes in September that the induction meeting will be taking place on Wednesday 26th June at 2:00pm. You will be given further starting information as well as a date for a 1:1 meeting with your child’s future class teacher. Representatives from our uniform supplier, Ace Clothing, will also be available to enable you to view uniform/sizes and order if you so wish.

While the weather is still changeable and wet, children must please come to school wearing coats.

Please note our term dates for the next academic year have been amended to reflect the change in the date of the early May Bank Holiday from Monday 4th to Friday 8th May to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

Have a lovely weekend!

The children learnt about the values of cricket, focusing on teamwork, perseverance and fair play. They took part in a range of activities including cricket games in the MCC Cricket Academy, a cricket quiz in the private boxes and cake decorating. The children had a great day and enjoyed the activities and mixing with some greats of the game!

Year 6 visited Lord’s on Monday where we took part in a variety of activities. These included decorating brownies, playing indoor cricket and doing a pop quiz. This trip has been one of the highlights of our year! It great to get the chance to meet famous cricketers and have a day of fun and we really hope we get to visit Lord’s again before we leave St. Edward’s.

Most of us have tried mini golf but we haven't really play real golf before. We took part in fun activities such as Drive for Show, Chipping and Aiming. It was really great to learn a new sport and to take part in a competition. We came in 2nd place! It was surprisingly enjoyable and I think other people should try it too! By Gracie, class 12
