HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE

Dear Children, Parents, Carers,

We have now reached the end of our spring term and what a busy and productive term it has been!

 I wish to thank our children, parents, senior leaders, teachers, support staff and governors for all the hard work and dedication that has been put in this term.  We have been preparing during Lent with special prayer services and assemblies.  As we await Christ’s Resurrection and we journey through Holy Week and the Triduum, I would  like to wish our St. Edward’s community a happy and joyful Easter.

I hope all our families have a restful and safe holiday and I look forward to seeing you on Monday 29th April when school reopens. 

Best wishes,

Miss O’Connor

Mary’s Meals

Last week, every class took part in a sponsored event for Mary's Meals. The children really enjoyed their events and it was wonderful to see everyone take part.

On behalf of Mary's Meals, I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who sponsored and donated. As a school we have raised £1780.00, this will go a long way into making a big difference to the lives of children in parts of Europe and Africa.

Thank you very much for all your support and a big thank you to all the children who took part in the events. Thank you too to WAES Amberley College for collecting money on our behalf for Mary’s Meals.

HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

Each day we are given the opportunity to make a new start. As Easter approaches let us think about any new starts that we can make with our family, friends or with God, remembering that God is always ready to help us to start afresh.

The most solemn week of the Christian year, Holy Week is the week leading up to Easter, and this is the time during which we particularly remember the death of Jesus.

At St. Edward’s we will be reflecting on Holy Week by celebrating the Liturgies (please see below). Parents of the children in the year groups presenting the Liturgies are very welcome to attend.

  • Monday 8th April at 9:00am - Y3 Palm Sunday Liturgy -Year 3 parents are invited. Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday.

  • Thursday 11th April at 9:00am - Y4 Maundy Thursday Liturgy -Year 4 parents are invited. Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter and it is remembered as the day of the Last Supper when Jesus washed the feet of his disciples.

  • Friday 12th April at 9:00am - Y5 Good Friday Liturgy - Year 5 parents are invited. Good Friday is the Friday before Easter - it commemorates the Passion and Jesus’s crucifixtion.

As I have mentioned in previous newsletters, it has been brought to my attention that pupils in KS2 are playing the game Fortnite. As with many online games, Fortnite comes with risks to children and young people. The game is PEGI rated at 12+, however, proof of age is not required and this can expose younger children to inappropriate content and comments from other users. The NSPCC website has relevant and useful information on how parents can help their children enjoy online gaming safely.

Please note that this week (week ending 5th April) has been the last week of after school clubs for this term. Fit for Sport will continue to run as usual.

School will finish at 1:30pm on Friday 12th April for the Easter holidays. Children return to school on Monday 29th April.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Miss Clare O’Connor

NOTICES AND REMINDERS

Art Club

In Art Club the children designed their very own colourful puzzles and then had fun putting them together!

 

Year 4 make damper!

In Year 4, as part of the Literacy curriculum children are reading the book ‘Odd and the Frost Giants’, which tell us the story of a young Viking boy . This week in class, children made damper - Viking's bread - and afterwards they wrote fantastic explanation texts on how to make yummy bread.


OUR RE CORNER

This week, each year group have been completing their sponsored event for Mary’s Meals.

Early Years hosted a sponsored obstacle course. They worked with their teachers to complete the course in the KS2 playground and all children completed it. They had so much fun! 

Years 1 and 2 completed a sponsored dance. This was just any dance; they had to dance for as long as they could without stopping!

Year 3 completed a sporting event. They had lots of fun in the playground, keeping active whilst raising money.  
Year 4 completed a sponsored spellathon. They had to learn 100 words and all worked really hard. If you see them in the playground, ask them how their spelling has improved.   
Years 5 and 6 took part in a 3 km fun run! The children worked very hard to raise lots of money. They also worked hard to complete the run! They puffed and huffed their way around, but they all truly made a valiant effort. 

Thank you to all the parents who got involved and sponsored their child. We have raised lots of money and all donations will go to Mary’s Meals which is a truly worthy cause. Read next weeks newsletter to find out how much we have raised. The class who raises the most will win an extra prize from Mrs Wright!

HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

As we read and listen to the parable of the Prodigal Son at Mass this Sunday, we will be reminded of God’s merciful and forgiving nature. Forgiveness is one of God’s greatest gifts to us and, as we are all part of God’s family, we should try our best to forgive one another.

Next week Wednesday photographers will be coming to our school to take individual and sibling photos. Please make sure that children are wearing their full uniform - including ties. Parents will have the opportunity to purchase these photos - order details to follow.

Please don’t forget to collect your sponsorship for Mary’s Meals - our Lenten appeal. All the money collected will go towards providing a daily meal to children in school in some of the poorest areas of the world. Thank you in advance for your generosity in supporting this very worthy cause.

Wishing all our St. Edward’s mothers and grandmothers a happy mother’s day! Thank you for all you do! I hope you have a relaxing day on Sunday!

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Miss Clare O’Connor

NOTICES AND REMINDERS

Year 4 learn about electricity

Year 4 have been building circuits in science this week. They have been learning all about conductors and insulators. The children now know why metal is used in electric plugs and light bulbs and why electrical wires are covered in plastic. They experimented by using an energy source to convert electrical energy into another type of energy, i.e. light.

 

Nursery says ‘thank you’ to their brilliant mums!

Our Nursery children have been busy this week creating special surprises to say thank you to their mothers for being the kindest and best mums ever!

 


School Photos

Come to school dressed smartly in full school uniform on Wednesday the 3rd April, ready to have your school photo taken. Remember to wear your tie! Individual and sibling photos will be taken.

OUR RE CORNER

In year 2 we have been learning about making a new start. During the time of Lent we remember that Jesus gives us all an opportunity to change and start over. We can make a positive change by giving up things that take up our time, and serving others instead. These are some examples we thought up: making a cup of tea for mum or dad, letting our friends go first when we play a game or helping with tasks at home. In year 2 we are thankful for new beginnings.

HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

As we journey through Lent, we are encouraged in this Sunday’s gospel to look at each new day as an opportunity for us to change and to keep growing in faith and goodness. By making and sharing positive changes we can live better lives and make the world a better place.

I am aware that some of our older children play the multiplayer action survival game Fortnite: Battle Royale. Concerns have been raised over a function in Fortnite which automatically allows users to speak to other players through voice and text chat functions. It means children can be contacted by anyone else who is playing the game.  Research from NSPCC revealed that that one in four children have been contacted online by someone they don’t know and NSPCC are offering parents the following advice:

- Talk to your child regularly about what they are doing online and how to stay safe. Let them know they can come to you or another trusted adult if they’re feeling worried or upset by anything they have seen.

- Explore your child’s online activities together. Understand why they like using certain apps, games or websites and make sure they know what they can do to keep themselves safe.

- Agree your own rules as a family when using sites, apps and games.

- Manage your technology and use the privacy and parental control settings available to keep your child safe. 

Please follow these links for further advice: NSPCC and UK Safer Internet

Fit For Sport will be holding various Easter Holiday Camps across London with the closest one being held at the Bayswater Children’s Centre. Visit Fit For Sport for further details and booking information.

Please see below for information from our Chair of Governors regarding the Governors’ Fund.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Miss Clare O’Connor

NOTICES AND REMINDERS

Class 7’s assembly

Well done to class 7 for their amazing assembly about ‘Light and Dark’. You were all super stars, especially your excellent dancing skills!

 

‘World on a Plate’ thank you!

Once again, we would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to local businesses - Firebrand Pizza, Sea Shell and Tesco, Lisson Grove - for their very generous donations towards our ‘World on a Plate’ day. You helped make our event even more special. Katia and Noor delivered thank you cards handmade by St. Edward’s children to convey their appreciation for the support our school has received.

We also want to extend our gratitude to Waitrose Edgware Road (Miss Freiter) for the wonderful donations towards our class hampers. Thank you!

We are pleased to announce the winners of our hampers:

Europe £22 (Youssef)

Asia £22 (Oskar)

South America £25 (Elsa)

Worldwide £25 (Ugbad)

Our total funds raised from ‘World on a Plate’, including the hamper raffle, is a fantastic £698.36! This money will be benefitting the children of St. Edward’s as it will be used to create a new technology department. Our PTA worked incredibly hard to organise the day and we are very thankful to them for giving up their free time and skills.

So, on behalf of all the children and staff, THANK YOU to everyone who supported our PTA to make ‘World on a Plate’ such a success!


 

Our Art Gallery

Miss Caridade has created a beautiful display showcasing some of the amazing art that has been created by our children. Please do come and have a look to see!

Last week our Art Club children created leprechaun inspired art to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

This week they made their own masks and journals - aren’t they great!

Giving All

In year 3 we have been learning about ‘giving all’ and have been looking at occupations that help people. Examples of these are doctors, firefighters, charity workers and many more. We have also learnt that in Lent we give through charity and kindness and we have been strengthening our Lenten promises. By Grace

HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

There are times when we all need encouragement, just as Jesus encouraged his disciples. May each of us encourage someone during this Lenten season by offering words of support and helping someone if they are struggling.

Yesterday we celebrated Multicultural Day and the children had an activity packed day starting with a fantastic assembly performed by class 8, followed by African drumming workshops, art and learning interesting facts and information about the different continents. We have so many nationalities represented at St. Edward’s and yesterday was a perfect celebration of our diversity. I loved seeing everyone dressed in their cultural clothes and colours - proudly displaying their cultural origins.

Our Multicultural Day ended with our brilliant ‘World on a Plate’ event. Thank you so very much to everyone who supported - either by cooking delicious food or attending. Our PTA put so much time and hard work into planning the event and so on behalf of the whole school community I wish to express our gratitude and appreciation. A very special thank you too to Firebrand Pizza, The Sea Shell and Tesco Lisson Grove for their very generous donations of pizza, fish and chips and Easter eggs. The money raised will be used towards redeveloping our technology department - something that will be of great and direct benefit to the children of St. Edward’s. So once again, thank you!

We will be auctioning the hampers that were made up with the donations from our own clothes day. Parents will be able to place bids from Monday morning till afternoon - bidding closes at 3:45pm. Please come to the KS2 playground where the hampers will be on display under the awning.

Please see below for message from our Governors and our term dates for the academic year 2019/20.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Miss Clare O’Connor

Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for encouraging us. Please help us to be more like you - to be an encouragement to those around us. Amen.


ATTENDANCE

Class 13 are our attendance cup winners this week with 97.7%.


NOTICES AND REMINDERS

Class 8’s assembly - Multicultural Day

Class 8 conveyed a beautiful message in their assembly - everyone is the same no matter where we come from. Class 8 has 20 different nationalities in their class and so were the perfect class to host an assembly on our Multicultural Day! Thank you to all parents who came along to watch.

 

Multicultural Day

We spent the day taking part in fun activities that showcased our appreciation of all the different nationalities that we are so fortunate to have at St. Edward’s. Our families come from so many parts of the world and that is what makes us such a great school!

 

World on a Plate Day

As you can tell from the photos we had a excellent ‘World on a Plate’ day with so much delicious food and good company! Our PTA pulled out all the stops to create a lovely event for us all to enjoy. We were very fortunate to receive donations from Firebrand Pizza, The Sea Shell and Tesco of Lisson Grove. We are very grateful to them for their generosity and the pizzas and fish and chips were very much enjoyed! Thank you to all who supported the event - we are already looking forward to next year!

 

British Values

il.jpg

In Year 5, we looked at the British value, INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY.  We spent time discussing what that meant to us and what it involved, in order to have liberty in Great Britain today.

Year 5, Mr Twigden and Mrs Pini then created and sang a song about Unity in Britain.  

The message was to reinforce that ‘WE ARE ONE’ despite our differences.  


OUR RE CORNER

mm.jpg

As we are in Lent it is a time to reflect and think about those less fortunate then ourselves. Part of what makes St Edward’s school so special is the generosity of our students and their families and friends. Over the next couple of weeks, each year group will be holding a fund raising event to help raise money for Mary’s Meals.

Mary’s Meals is a charity that believes that every child deserves an education and enough to eat.

Please see below to find out what your child's class will be completing.

  •  Year 5/6: Sponsored 3K fun run

  • Year 4: Sponsored Spellathon

  • Year 3: Sponsored shootout

  • Year 1/2: Sponsored dance

  • Reception/Nursery: Sponsored obstacle course

Please support your child in any way you can. It costs just £13.90 to feed a child for a whole school year in countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the Caribbean. Thank you.


SPORT

WSU Annual 3 v 3 Basketball

Our team played well alongside 19 other schools, displaying impressive basketball skills. The children enjoyed the pregames training and the competition games. Congratulations to Gracie (year 5) who, out of 160 children, received a medal during the warm ups for showing great determination!

ST. EDWARD’S PTA

PTA-JoinToday200x200.jpg

The PTA wishes to thank all families of St.Edward’s who helped, donated or came along to our ‘World on a Plate’ event. It was a great success and the delicious food was enjoyed by everyone who attended! A special thank you to Firebrand Pizza, The Seashell and Tesco, Lisson Grove for their generous and much appreciated donations!

All parents are automatically part of the St. Edward’s PTA and there are many opportunities for everyone to get involved.

One of these opportunities is volunteering as a class rep - a great way to help the school and to get to know the other parents. Reps provide a great communication channel between PTA committee, the school and parents in the playground. The PTA is an important asset to the school. We organise events and help raise vital funds to benefit all our children. Being class rep allows you and the parents in your class to have a more active say in what the PTA does in terms of events and fundraising.

Typically the duties for class representatives are:

- To pass on information from the PTA to other parents in your child's class, collate the results of any surveys and encourage parents to support the PTA.
- Attend the AGM and PTA committee meetings (dates and times to be confirmed)
- Coordinate volunteers to help with fundraising activities. Reps will help to run a class stall at fairs with responsibility for setting up, managing the rota, clearing up and feeding back any information to the PTA committee.
- Organise informal social activities for parents/families in their child's class, ranging from play dates to coffee mornings. (That is optional but an effective way of generating team spirit and welcoming new families joining your class)
- Seek feedback from parents regarding PTA events or funding requests and pass it on to the committee.
- Recruit a new class rep towards the end of the summer term to take over in the new academic year.

We encourage you to sign up in pairs - tasks seem less daunting with a friend or a like minded parent  by your side! There is no formal specification for the role, but someone who is sociable, confident enough to approach parents and encourage them to help out at events and support the PTA, having organisational skills will also help. Being around at either drop off or pick up times most days will also help to build relationships with other parents. Being class rep isn’t only a job for the ‘MUMS’. Being involved as a dad can bring in fresh ideas and a different perspective!

Our PTA is currently looking for a Secretary to join our team. The Secretary ensures that the PTA runs smoothly and provides a link between Committee Members and the PTA, and between the PTA and the School.  This requires good organisational and communication skills and being able to stick to deadlines.

Secretary Job Role:
The Secretary is a key committee member as they are responsible for ensuring effective communication links between committee members and between the PTA and the school. The Secretary deals with all the correspondence that the PTA receives and helps the Chair ensure that committee meetings run smoothly. As well as dealing with correspondence, following a committee meeting, the Secretary will need to make bookings and other arrangements for events. Confirm arrangements made by telephone in writing (by letter or e-mail).  The Secretary will make arrangements for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and help the Chair prepare the annual report. 

Main duties:
• Deal with correspondence
• Arrange meetings
• Prepare and distribute agendas
• Take the minutes of meetings, type them up and distribute them.
• Write the annual report with the Chair
• Preparation and distribution of newsletters and other communications to parents
• Preparation of publicity flyers, posters, tickets, etc. for events
 
You will not do this role alone, we work as a team and always help each in anyway we can!

Easyfundraising

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online you could be raising a free donation for St. Edward’s Catholic Primary School PTA? There are over 3,100 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation when you shop with them, including Amazon, John Lewis and Sainsbury's and it doesn't cost you a penny extra!

To get started, all you have to do is:

  1. Join.
    Head to easyfundraising, search for St Edwards RC Primary School PTA - London and sign up for free.

  2. Shop.
    Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first, pick the retailer you want and start shopping.

  3. Raise.
    After you've checked out, that retailer will make a donation to us and it won't cost you a penny extra!

Please help us by giving more than a gift - there are no catches or hidden charges and St Edwards Catholic Primary School PTA  will be really grateful for your donations.

Thank you to all our families for their continued support.
