Whole School Events 2019/20
New Ambassadors: September 2019
This term’s new Ambassadors were revealed in a special House Assembly. Our Ambassadors are an integral part of our school and are actively involved in assemblies, weekly Marvellous Manners, Developing Pride, new initiatives in school, and the organisation of Parents’ Afternoons - to name but a few things. We greatly appreciate their input and their dedication to this important task. Elected by their peers, they are fantastic role models, consistently demonstrating the skills which underpin all teaching and learning at Edisford: confidence, persistence, getting along, organisation and resilience. Outgoing Ambassadors received a commemorative badge; we thank them for doing such a wonderful job. Congratulations and the best of luck to our new team!
Whole School Events 2018/19
Special Awards Assembly Thursday 18th July, 2019
Red Nose Day Fun 2019
Children were delighted to have their noses painted red for charity on Friday 15th March! At Edisford, we are actively endeavouring to reduce our use of polluting plastic and children all agreed that this was an excellent way to show our whole-hearted support for Comic Relief!
Many thanks to Mrs Darnell and her lovely People Skills group for organising this!
World Book Day 2019
A plethora of characters from the magical world of books roamed the corridors of Edisford on World Book Day (7th March, 2019)! Children looked phenomenal! Everyone was truly impressed by the level of creativity and effort that had obviously gone into costumes. Even more impressive was the fact that children were so eager to explain the story behind their costume!
The first lesson of the day was turned into 'Story Time' as all members of staff, also dressed as their favourite character, invited children to visit different areas of school where they could listen to all of, or an extract of, some of their favourite books. Harry Potter, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Golden Tickets upon entry here, thank you!), Dr Seuss, Nevermoor, The Enchanted Faraway Tree, James and the Giant Peach, Little Red Riding Hood, Elmer, The Gruffalo... these are just some of the wonderful titles on offer! What a terrific time everyone had!
Amazing Achievements Assembly: Friday 15th February, 2019
An atmosphere of celebration filled the air on Friday, as Amazing Achievements were awarded to pupils. This was an especially joyous occasion as their parents, or other family members, were invited to join this special event. Children have received awards for particular achievements, such as producing fabulous work in art, English or maths. Others may have achieved something truly special outside of school, which has had an effect on their school life. Yet others may have received an award for their exemplary attitude towards school life in general. Children in Nursery and Reception held their own Amazing Achievements Assembly on Friday afternoon and received their certificates from Mrs Holden.
Whatever the reason for your award, we congratulate you wholeheartedly! Well done!
Children and staff also took the opportunity to present Carole Matthews with a wave of special cards, greetings and well wishes on her retirement. All the best, Carole!
Points Awards Assembly Friday 8th February, 2019
An atmosphere of celebration filled the air on Friday, as children from Years 2 to 6 came together for our Points Awards Assembly. Children earn points for demonstrating a broad variety of skills in our five areas of motivational learning: People Skills, Organisational Skills, Persistence, Confidence and Emotional Resilience. We know that these a good grounding in these skills are invaluable to our children throughout their education and in later life. Well done to all those who were awarded a medal this time. The next medal award assembly will take place in the summer term.
