What's happening at Edenbridge Primary School?

Home Learning Superstars!

It has been lovely to hear from so many of you about the fabulous work you have been completing at home!  We have seen creative artwork outdoors, lots of Science, cooking and even computing!  Taking pride in your learning is something we have and always will encourage so please keep tweeting and sending us what you've been up to!

Edenbridge Hub Superstars!

We have been very busy at the Edenbridge Hub this week with lots of learning based around spiders! We've made hats, bobble spiders and even spider's webs!  Do you like spiders?  When the sunshine came out, we took advantage a went outside.  We used the strong winds to fly a kite!

District Netball and Football

A team of footballers and netballers took part in the Netball and Football District Tournament.  All the children played their best and did us proud as a school.  We played a number of games and were up against 14 different schools.  Our netball team came away with 2nd place!

Science Week at Edenbridge

It has been a really exciting week here at Edenbridge, with lots of different workshops and experiments taking place across the school!

EYFS have learnt that our brains are the busiest computers of all and are made up mostly of water- in fact 75% of our brains is water!  They even made their own model brains.  Air resistance experiments have been carried out, with children making parachutes choosing suitable materials to ensure their egg made a safe landing.  Chemical reactions have been taking place, with children observing what happens when they mix a combination of solids and liquids.

Here's just a snap shot of some of the fun!

We are Engineers

To kick of Science week here at Edenbridge Year 5 and 6 turned into engineers.  In groups the children had to use the resources provided to build a bridge- it had to be at least 45cm wide and hold a moderate amount of weight.

Chartwell Cancer Trust

Chartwell Cancer Trust supports families when children are suffering from a long term or serious illness- this may mean having to support parents who are having to juggle everyday work and family life with the needs of a very sick child.  The money we raise will go towards purchasing a robot that can be used to prevent children becoming isolated if their illness means that they are unable to attend school  for an extended period of time.  It provides a way for the child to communicate directly with their class and join in some learning opportunities which should lessen the feeling of loneliness or missing out.

Year 4 Temper Temper Chocolate

As part of their learning, Year 4, with the help of Temper Temper Chocolate Company, turned the hall into a chocolate factory!  The children were taught all about how chocolate is made and were also able to make their own sweet treats, which they could taste before being taken home.  You can see the excitment on their faces!

Remembrance Day

To commemorate Remembrance Day our head boy and girl, along with other representatives from across the academy, went to South Norwood Primary School to attend a special remembrance service.  It was a time for reflection and to give thought to all those who have fought for our country.  School Council representatives also joined Miss Butcher on Sunday to lay a wreath in the town center. 

TT Rockstars

On Friday 8th November we held a TT Rockstars launch day!  Timetables Rockstars is a fantastic online resource where children can compete against eachother in order to improve their timetables recall in a fun and motivational way.  We invited all children to come to school dressed as a rockstar and gave each class the opportunity to use the programme.  The highlight of the day had to be the fantastic costumes from Mr Ming and Mrs Brown.

Edenbridge Bonfire Parade

On Saturday 2nd November, we took part in the annual Edenbridge Bonfire Parade.  This year the theme was 'The Day of the Dead' or 'Dia de Los Muertos' and it was wonderful to see so many people from our school community involved- as a marshall or as part of the parade.  The effort some people went to was fantastic and our brilliant PTA did a fantastic job in co-ordinating  the whole event- a HUGE thank you from all of us!  Now to think about next year!
