New clubs at Edinburgh!

2nd May 2022

 

We are really excited to see two new clubs at Edinburgh - Rhythmic gymnastic for our younger children-Netball for our older girls.  We can't wait to see children enjoying these clubs and making progress, eventually getting to compete within the borough.

The School Council met and have begun work on two awards, one of which is the Rights Respecting Schools award promoted and supported by the United Nations.  At Edinburgh, we will be working to ensure that all members of our community are aware of each of the rights in the convention and to embed these values in every day school life.

Police Officer Assemblies

This week, the children have each had a year group assembly led by the local police – the age-appropriate sessions have tackled safety outside of school~stranger danger, internet safety etc. This was great timing, with the Easter break approaching.

School Council Termly Review Meeting

31st March 2022

 

Over the past few days, our school council met for their termly review and planning meeting. This was a great opportunity for the children and they enjoyed the complimentary squash and biscuits for all their hard work! We look forward to seeing our young leaders get to work next term!

 

Spring Fayre!

26th March 2022

 

On Saturday, the community gathered at Edinburgh for our first Fayre since covid.  Our PTA did a fantastic job and there were a great range of stalls.  Our school council also led a stall and the activites were fantastic!  The weather was great and we all enjoyed the Edinburgh performances which began at around 2pm.  Our performers took to the stage to showcase what they have been working on this term in the range of clubs and musical lessons that we run here at school each week. 

 

The show began with our recorder group playing 'hot cross buns', followed by our flute quartet who really played with such confidence and excellent timing.  Next, our ballet group performed a piece of work that gave a special moment for each member of the group to take to the floor for a solo. Finally, we were wowed by our musical theatre group who performed a song from 'Annie'. The acting, singing and movement was extremely high quality and the sheer enjoyment on the children's faces was just a joy to see.  We look forward to the summer fayre!

Red Nose Day

18th March 2022

 

We had a fantastic day today! Children got to learn about the purpose of RND and also got to dress up as a super hero! Our playground was very busy! Thank you for all donations - we managed to raise £200.  Many thanks to our school council for their participation and fantastic organisation skills!

Swimming Lessons Commence

14th March 2022

 

Our year 5 children begin their two-week intensive swimming course this today. This is such an important skill for our pupils to master and they will get to a further intensive course next year in year 6.  We can't wait to see you make progress!

Edinburgh Explorers

11th March 2022

 

As well as having a passion for the Arts, Edinburgh Primary School is incredibly lucky to have many talented scientists. This has led to the formation of a new group; The Edinburgh Explorers. It will be their job to keep the school up to date with the latest scientific and technological news and every half-term they will produce a newsletter to document the incredible advances that are happening on an almost daily basis.

 

There was an overwhelming response and it has been incredibly hard to pick members of this new group. Some of the applications received were incredible and it has been no mean feat to select our new group. It will be their job to keep the school up to date with the latest scientific and technological news and every half-term they will produce a newsletter to document the incredible advances that are happening on an almost daily basis.

Celebrating World Book Day!

3rd March 2022

 

We have had a fun packed book week and World Book Day.  All week long, children have been treated to guessing the masked reader, reading challenges and 'drop everything and read' when the prefects blow the whistle in the corridors. We are also pleased that so many families came to our book fair and we managed to raise an amazing £1300!  The commission we received will enable us to top-up our school library-thank you!

Netball at Edinburgh

5th January 2022

 

Our years 4,5 and 6 girls have been learning the fantastic team game of netball in preparation for the introduction of our netball club in the summer term. We are keen to get a team up and running so that we can take part in competitions across the borough!
