To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow

13th May 2021

Throughout April the Little Learners have been very busy tending to the nursery garden. First the children helped to dig over the large planter and add more soil. Then we re-potted the smaller planters with flowers in. We talked about what the plants and flowers needed to grow and guessed how big they may be….

The Elephant in the room – Do people who run marathons know that they don’t have to?

28th April 2021

These words appeared in my social media feed: ‘Do people who run marathons know that they don’t have to?’. This obviously got me thinking. It will come as no surprise to you that I have a fondness for endurance events. It wasn’t always this way but it has grown as I have aged. Over the…

Meet Hayley, our new Baby Room Supervisor.

16th April 2021

When I was asked to take over leadership of the Baby Room at Edenhurst Nursery, I jumped at the chance. It was my role at my previous nursery and an age group I love to work with. I have worked with children from the ages of 3 months to 11 years and have been a…

End of Term Fun

1st April 2021

World Book Day 2021- a little different this time- like most things this past academic year! It was important to us as a school, however, to ensure that we still gave the children the opportunity to dress up and celebrate their favourite characters and celebrate the incredible love of reading that we have seen blossoming…

Resilience

31st March 2021

I write this as we approach the end of quite an unusual term and definitely one that has tested our resilience as a community. We arrived in early January only to be told that we would be in Lockdown the next day. I was astounded how well our children were able to once again, without…

Open Mindedness

26th March 2021

Mental Agility – Open Mindedness We all carry our schooling with us for the rest of our lives. This is particularly true when it comes to teachers. There are definitely two camps here: those teachers who loved their time at school and strive to emulate their own experience, and those who are putting to right…

To Learn Takes Courage

22nd March 2021

  Learning takes courage. As human beings, our natural inclination is towards the status quo. What is learning if not a change of mind, of thinking? Any change can be daunting and often unwelcome but it is in this place of discomfort where we (and our children) learn best. So, how do we lead our…

The importance of Snappy

12th March 2021

  Life is a risk. Never before has our awareness of this been higher. One can’t help but feel bombarded by the statistics and the temptation to lock yourself indoors and never go out is huge. Even shopping has become an adrenaline-filled extreme sport!     In the run up to the full reopening of schools…

Children’s Mental Health Week

3rd February 2021

Children’s Mental Health Week   This week is Children’s Mental Health week and never before has this been more important to highlight. It is important that we recognise that if we as adults don’t look after our own mental health, we will not be able to support our children as we need to.   Never…

The recipe for a great school

22nd January 2021

What makes a school good or great? Educational researchers have poured over this for years and generated huge amounts of data. Data is important and can provide us with a great deal of insight but sometimes you have to go with your gut. That is what is reflected in this blog. I have been working…
