All our children were welcomed back last September.  It is heart -warming  to see them taking part in learning and socialising again.  They have adjusted well to their new Covid safe environment and lessons and activities continue as before but in class bubbles.  We now have to think creatively to ensure that they do not miss out on events that we have always celebrated at Edgar Sewter.

The whole school met together virtually on the 23rd of October for Harvest Festival.  Each class read Harvest stories and poems.  Rev J Sermon led the school in prayers and explained the importance of the work carried out by the Waveney Food Bank.  The children had specifically requested that the tinned food they had collected should be donated to the Food Bank.

They again demonstrated their generosity to Children in Need.  They had a non-uniform day in return for a donation of nearly £360.  In lessons they talked about the importance of the charity and the work it does.

They also marked Remembrance Day in a different way this year.  Each class bubble had researched the significance of Remembrance and the older children went outside for the two minute silence looking back at the window display of poppies they had created.

We are now planning how to celebrate Christmas as a school in a safe environment however it is sad that parents and grandparents will not be able to join us but everyone at Edgar Sewter would like to wish them and the rest of the community a very happy Christmas.
