King Edward Primary School and Nursery Excitement + Determination = Success

2022 - 2023

Our Head Girl & Boy for 2022-23







There's so much going on in Y6 at the moment as always!


World Book Day was last week and we had a fabulous time - the whole school dressed in their pyjamas for the day and our School Council organised a book swap event for both us and the parents! It was fab to be able to take home so many new books and there were some fantastic choices to pick from. Lots of us also took part in the 'shoe-box diorama' competition, converting a shoe box into a scene from one of our favourite books.  The 3 winners were well-deserved and thrilled with their prizes - a brand new book each, of course!


We've been busy all week preparing for our DAaRT graduation, which is coming up on Monday afternoon. We've been taking part in the programme for 10 weeks now and will complete our final session on Monday afternoon just before our graduation. Over the course of the programme, we've learnt so much about alcohol, legal and illegal drugs and knife and hate crimes.  In addition, we've been able to develop strategies to support us in dealing with challenging or dangerous situations as we get older, including resisting peer pressure and ways to combat stress.  Parents are invited to the graduation on Monday and we've been allowed to really take responsibility for organising the event, in terms of how we would like to represent our learning.  There will be sign language, singing, drama and some of us will be sharing our DAaRT reports, definitions learnt and key advice that we'd pass on to the Y5s!


Two things this week have been particularly fun so far... The first is that, as part of our DAaRT graduation prep, we've been designing our own t-shirts to wear on the day!  We all brought in our own white t-shirts and have used fabric pens to decorate them.  They look amazing and we really can't wait to wear them on the day!  The second is that Mrs Goddard and Mr Starr took 10 of us to West Notts on Wednesday for a special team-building event.  The photos and videos that they brought back look amazing and it sounds like those that went had a great time.


For those of us in Y6, SATs are getting closer and we're working very hard to prepare so that we can show off what we can do.  All we can do is our best and that's what we're determined to do - Miss Parsons was so impressed with the improvement in our arithmetic papers this week.  Fingers crossed they go up again next week, as we love smashing our next target!


Anyway, we'll write again next week to let you know how we get on and how the DAaRT graduation goes.
