What a fantastic week - in the final week of term, the Year 5/6 children put on an amazing performance of The Lion King for parents and children to enjoy. There was fantastic singing, great acting, drumming, and even a dew dance moves. A marvellous end to the year.
We've had a busy and great sporting year.
For those who missed it or those who want to watch again, please enjoy this video about the year we have had in sport!
All the best
Congratulations are due to four of our departing Year 6 pupils who received prestigious awards in our final assembly on Friday 22nd July.

Ben Marshall Award
The basketball team competed against the best school teams in the county on Friday.
Firstly, the opening ceremony showcased singing, international football freestylers and a street dancer before the children moved onto the Wildcats Arena for their competition.
The team can be really proud of what they achieved by finishing 5th in the County!
What a great day today! 16 children took part in the annual Primary Games, where the top 8 performing schools in Ashfield faced off in sporting competitions throughout the day.
Having qualified by finishing 4th in the primary medal table and gaining the 2nd highest medal haul overall, we looked forward to celebrating a fantastic year of sporting competition at Edgewood by competing with similar schools.
Edgewood Sports Week -
The weather held off today and allowed the children to enjoy the sunshine as well as the activities on offer.
Y5/6 enjoyed a day of climbing and slacklining. A lot of children faced their fears on the climbing wall, whether going up or putting their feet over the edge on the way down! Slacklining proved to be really popular, as children were finding interesting ways to gracefully dismount the tightrope! During some downtime, the children even managed to involve Mr Tidd in a competitive game of Nine Square!
The Tri-Golf team had a great time on Friday afternoon, competing in the competition at Selston High School. Well done to the whole team for ending the competition in a very close 2nd!
On Tuesday 14th June, Year 6 students visited Nottingham Trent University as part of the university's outreach programme. The day explored the experience of life at a university, and made comparisons for the children with their impending transition to secondary school. We found out about the various courses and activities available at universities across the country, before taking a tour around the campus to see sights such as the library, sporting facilities, canteens and accommodation blocks.
