Moses Boyd Played at Our Assembly Today

Today, in assembly we had a special guest named Moses Boyd and he is a famous drummer. Moses is an excellent drummer, who has now started making albums with other bands. When everyone watched him in action, we were flabbergasted and excited. We all thought that Mr Boyd was great at his rhythms. These are the questions that we all asked Moses with his answers:

  • How old are you? 26
  • Who is your inspiration? Dennis Chambers
  • What other instrument do you play? Piano but slightly flops, because he concentrates more on the drums than the piano.
  • Do you have any siblings? A brother
  • What school did you go to? Holbeach Primary School

Apart from that, I think Moses is a very good role model and he is going to be my inspiration for drumming.

Reading Newsletter

At Edmund Waller, we are passionate about the children developing a lifelong love of reading.  Children who enjoy reading are happier, healthier; they are more empathetic, do better academically and do better in life generally.  In school, teachers read to their classes every day.  You will find the books they are currently enjoying displayed on classroom doors.  In the fifth edition of our bi-annual Reading Newsletter, children from every year group talk about the power of reading with someone at home.

On the reverse of the Reading Newsletter, you will find: Why Read Aloud? a powerful infographic summarising the benefits of reading aloud.  It is one of the practical resources created by the Read Aloud 15 Minutes National Campaign

At Edmund Waller, we strongly agree with their message about reading: “Every child. Every  parent. Every day”, encouraging 15 minutes of daily    reading aloud.

The Bring and Buy Sale

IMG_7819

On Friday we had a WILD Bring and Buy Sale at Edmund Waller School, to raise money for the famine in East Africa.  It was so popular, the weather was lovely and the classes provided so much to sell!

There were toys, books and we are pretty sure we saw a keyboard, some paintings and a model boat. There was one table for each year group and they were all run by our School Councillors (the teachers, teaching assistants and some of our classmates helped us).  They were set up so everyone could see everything and nothing was left behind.  Customers chose a fair price to pay for each item.  We collected so much money we are sure the Red Cross people will be happy with our donation!

Remember if you did not buy anything on the day, you can always go on the internet with your parents and donate your own money to help buy starving children food to eat.

Today we counted the money we raised from the Bring and Buy Sale. It took a long time!

was a bit like the pile on our table.  There was also £160 worth of notes! Over all we raised £373.19 and it was all because of the wonderful children and parents in our school.  Well done Edmund Waller!
