World Book Day

On Thursday 1st March Edlesborough School celebrated World Book Day. The morning started with a family breakfast in the hall followed by an opportunity to share a book with siblings and parents in class. Dressed as their favourite book characters, Year 6 pupils really got into character!

Virtual Reality Experience - Topic Work, Ancient Greece 2 Is it my turn yet?
On Monday 26th February, Year 6 utilised virtual reality headsets to gain a three dimensional insight into what it was like to live in Ancient Greece. The pupils were able to view the Acropolis and the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens before ascending Mount Olympus from where Zeus, the God of War, once ruled the world. The activity was enjoyed by all and generated lots of interest and discussion about what they had seen.

New Start


 By  Jack Jeffery

My name is Jack and I am 10 years old,

I have a story that wants to be told,

It is a story of woe and hardship,

But at the end your heart will flip.


It was about a year ago,

When I felt so very low,

But in times before that,

I was loved just like a cat.


I was at that school for 5 long years,

I was a boy of very little fears,

I had plenty of friends to back me up,

And I soared like a bird and went up, up, up.


But then my life was flipped up-side down,

And I was shipped off to a brand new town,

I had to say hello to the new and goodbye to the old,

Although it was summer I felt so very cold.


They didn’t accept me,

I didn’t have the key,

They threw me to the floor,

And looked at me no more.


Then I realized this was a second chance,

And that they wouldn’t just  give me a first glance,

I will fit in in this b rand new place,

And I would make sure they saw my face.


Now this school has become my home,

And I am Edlesborough to the bone,

And although my blue jumper is always seen,

I will not forget my old friends in green



A Classmate Departs...

Lily, who had been at Edlesborough School since Reception, left Year 6 on Friday 1st December to move with her family to Hampshire. The class celebrated Lily's (and her sister Ella's) time at Edlesborough School during assembly. We wish them all the best in their new school.

Harvest Assembly 2017

Well done to all of Year 6 for a fabulous performance of Autumn Days in our assembly today. A special thank you to Josh and Maisie as Head Boy and Girl who led the assembly, as well as Harry and Jack our sound technicians.

Delivering around the village, Year 6 were exemplary role models and I'm amazingly proud of their maturity whilst carrying out this task.

Lastly, a special thank you to the mums who helped out this morning, without them it would have been an impossible job!!

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch


To start off our new academic year, we have been learning about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. We have used photos to discuss the cause of this, to debate what we can do, produce posters and a short non-chronological report.

Our anti-litter posters based on work about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch
