We are pleased to announce the genesis of the St Edwards Creative Writing Club! On Tuesday evenings, Miss Smith and Mr Groome are giving a group of Year 6 pupils the chance to express themselves creatively in different styles and genres of writing.
Last week, Year 3 went on a very exciting trip to Colchester Zoo. We learned a lot about different creatures, particularly those that live in the rainforest.
The children enjoyed seeing the vast array of animals and the habitats that have been created for them, from the ant colony and the creepy-crawlies in the Discovery Centre…
…to the elephant paddock and the tiger enclosure (feeding time was not for the faint-hearted).
It was a great day out. Many thanks to all of the volunteers who gave up their time to come with us!
St Edward’s has been celebrating a belated World Book Day with a visit from Tolu who showed us his new book, The Frog and his Dancing Shoes, and performed it for us.
Year 3 have been sharing their favourite books and characters with each other, talking about what makes a good book, and designing some of our own.
Year 3 staff dressed as trolls.
Let us know what your favourite books are!
