Year 7 Learning from home.
Monday 29th June 2020
It was great to see you and speak to you all on Friday. A huge THANKS for all your gifts, cards and kind words. It was so generous of you and your parents. We hope you treasure all your memories of your primary school. Sadly, your time at Edwards has come to an end but the next stage of your educational journey will be starting soon. May we wish you all the very best for the future and we hope you do well in your next school. Take care, stay safe and good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Harry for your final pieces of work. Well done!!
WOW!! Such a kind and thoughtful poem written by Harry.
CLASS OF 2020
We have been together for 7 years, Sharing our hopes, dreams and fears.
But in March, we were sent home to stay, Learning online was our new school day.
We made rainbow pictures and went out to cheer,The key workers protecting those we hold dear.
What should have been a time for celebration, Became a time of worry and isolation.
But what we have learnt in a time like this, Is what's truly important and the friends we miss.
It has not been the final year we had hoped, But we're amazed at your strength and how well you have coped.
Hold on to the memories that we have shared, Remembering friends and those who cared.
The class of 2020 will hold a place in our hearts, For the courage you've shown from the very start.
You have carried on regardless during this period of change, And continued on when things were strange.
You're moving on to somewhere new, Filled with the confidence you need to see you through.
FROM ALL AT EDWARDS, WE WISH YOU ALL THE BEST, SMILES AND HARD WORK WILL BE YOUR KEY TO SUCCESS.
BEST WISHES FROM MRS DONAGHY AND MISS ROKE

What a journey we have been on since September! It's so hard to believe it is June and what would be our final month together at Edwards Primary School.We may have lost a few months of learning together but it has given you the opportunity to spend extra time at home with your loved ones. You can enjoy outdoor activities and play your favourite games. We hope you are managing to do some of the activities we have provided each day. This week as part of our work for Leavers we would love you to design the front of our DVD. This can be done by adapting the editable version below and sending to Miss Roke. Remember, we love to hear from you. Continue to send us your emails.
