A Plea for Sponsorship – Half Marathon!

This Sunday, class 5M teacher, Mr McArthur and class 6JA teacher, Mr Jackson will be running a half marathon (The Big Half) in aid of ‘Children with Cancer UK.’

This wonderful charity is based in the Great Ormond Street Hospital and helps the children and their families through truly awful situations; John and I are very proud to be wearing their colourful Mr Men and Little Miss vests this weekend.

5M Half Term Home Learning

Your task over half term is to research a famous invention or inventor of your choosing. You can present it as a poster, short book, or using ICT. Some inventors you could choose from are Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Benjamin Franklin, James Watt, Marie Curie, Nancy Johnson, Maria Telkes, Grace Hopper or anyone else that you think are noteworthy inventors. I hope you have a fun and safe holiday and I can’t wait to see what you come up with when I see you in a week!

Be good,

Mr McArthur

Choir Performance at the 02

On Tuesday 6th February, the Edmund Waller School Choir headed to the 02 to perform as part of a 7000 strong children’s choir.  The children have been working very hard since September to learn 16 songs that lasted an hour!  They took part in a 3 hour long rehearsal in the afternoon, followed by the concert for an audience of over 10,000 people in the evening.  They sang absolutely brilliantly and they performed with great energy and enthusiasm!
