Dear Parents, Carers and Children,
This Sunday the Gospel will remind us that Jesus is the Good Shepherd and that we can rely on him to guide our lives in the right direction. If we listen to Jesus and follow him, we can live in God’s love to make life better for all around us.
It has been a busy week at St. Edward’s with exciting trips and learning experiences happening. I do hope you enjoy the pictures below.
On Thursday the 16th May, your child is invited to join us for a delicious ‘build a burger’ lunch. For this event, the meal is FREE for all children, however it is necessary to return the reply slip which can be found on the letters that have been sent home today.
We are hoping to host our annual children’s Summer Party on the afternoon of 28th June. The event will only be able to go ahead with the help of parent volunteers. If you are able to assist in the organising of the party and helping out on the day, then please let the school office know. Thank you to the parents who have already volunteered - your continued help and support is very much appreciated!
To all in Year Six, wishing you the very best of luck for your SATS. You have all worked so hard and should be extremely proud of your achievements so far. All of you have shown a great commitment to your learning and next week is your chance to shine! Relax over the weekend. Good luck!
Have a lovely weekend!

NOTICES AND REMINDERS
Class 1’s Assembly
On Thursday, class 1 had their first ever class assembly! The children in class 1 decided that they wanted to do their assembly about their friends. We talked about what it means to be a good friend and how we can continue doing so. Considering the children in class 1 are 3 and 4 years old, they did so well to get up on the stage and perform! They have grown in confidence so much and we are SO proud!

Class 12 meet the England cricket team!
On Thursday, class 12 had the privilege of meeting a few players of the England cricket team. They helped the class with their cricketing skills and they even played a match with the children! Everyone felt so fortunate to have met them and we wish them luck in the upcoming cricket world cup.
St. Edward’s visits QPR!
Ten lucky children were chosen to participate in a rugby and football festival hosted by QPR. The children were taken on a tour of the stadium and also competed in matches on the actual Loftus Road pitch - home of QPR Football Club!
Year 4 get scientific!
On Thursday, in year 4 we received a special visitor who came from Benjamin Franklin House. Did you know that Benjamin Franklin not only invented electricity, but also made the first bi- focal glasses? We had lots of fun and at the end created a plan for our own inventions! Marley invented a robot which would collect all the litter from the streets - it's name was "Save the world 6000!"
Our Art club children had fun trying their hand at tape resist art this week and the results were great!
Good luck to all children sitting their SATs next week! We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
Children are invited to have a delicious ‘build a burger’ lunch on Thusday 16th May. The event will be free for all children. So, if you normally bring a packed lunch to school, why don’t you have a yummy burger instead? Vegetarian options will be available. All you need to do is return the reply slip by Tuesday 14th May.
OUR RE CORNER
In class 10 we have been learning about ‘New Life’ based on the Pentecost. In Pentecost the Holy Spirit came down to the disciples which helped them to share the Good News. Pentecost was after the Ascension, when Jesus came down from heaven and resurrected from the dead in accordance with the scriptures.
The Holy Spirit’s love, protection, guidance and care was shared by the disciples to people across the world. New life reminds us that God is all around us - protecting, guiding, caring and forgiving us always. We always are given chances to start a fresh. By Melanta and Izzy
