Wherever you are around the School the sound of happy, enthusiastic children having fun playing sport along with the positive feedback and shouts of encouragement from Mr Bovingdon can be heard.
At St Edward’s Prep our children are lucky enough to have access to the positive and empowering world of LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art). Two of the key areas that LAMDA focuses on are Communication and emotional awareness, soft skills that employers say they are finding increasingly more difficult to find in candidates.
Whenever you walk in to the Year 3 classroom there is always a great sense of energy and feeling of enthusiasm and enquiry in the classroom amongst the pupils whether it be Maths, English, Geography or Art the order of the day. It’s clear to see that Di Wilson has a passion for all subjects.
What a pleasure it was for our St Edward’s Prep pupils to get back to swimming again at school after nearly a year away from the pool. Learning to swim is an important life skill and our pupils join our swimming programme as soon as they start in Reception.
Hard at work when you walk in, each Year 6 pupil is focusing on their own piece. Then the silence breaks and their lively English teacher Debbie Andrew invites someone to share their descriptive piece for the others to critique. Attentive listening, applause, thoughtful comment and useful feedback and then it is someone else’s turn.
As our pupils return to school for the remainder of the Spring Term they are able to make use of the new outdoor seating area between the astro and the playground.
Mr Slade along with Mr Stanford and Mr Imiolek have been working incredibly hard over the last couple of months to get the work completed in time for our school reopening. We are sure you will all join us in saying a very big thank you to them.
