Welcome to Queen Emma School

Dear Parents and Visitors,

Queen Emma Primary School opened its doors to our first Reception Classes in September 2011.  Over the past seven years it has become a thriving community school with all year groups from Reception to Year 6. Our catchment area covers the Queen Edith, Morley and Ridgefield areas and our community comprises families from around the world with over 28 languages spoken in the school at the last count!

Queen Emma is in federation with Queen Edith Primary School just a 5 minute walk away. The Federation is led by one headteacher, senior leadership team and governing body with representation from both schools.  For more information about the benefits of the Federation please visit the Queens' Federation website.

If you are considering a school for your child I hope I will have the opportunity to meet you in the near future and that if your child is to join us they will have a long and very happy association with the school. We are committed to working in partnership with our parents and our desire is that you feel fully involved in your child's education and the life of the school.

Yours sincerely,

Caroline Peet

Executive Headteacher

Dear Parents and Carers,
As you are aware HMI, Sue Aykin visited us last term to complete our Ofsted inspection. As a record of her visit she has written the attached letter about our school. Staff and governors  were delighted with her feedback and pleased that in such a short visit so many of the of school's strengths have been recognised. Please also find the letter from our Chairs of the Governing Body.

 

We will be ensuring we continue to work on the areas suggested in the report but also maintaining our commitment to seeing ever child thrive through the provision of a rich curriculum and excellent pastoral support.
My thanks go to all the staff for their dedication and inspirational teaching.

Best wishes,
Caroline Peet
Executive Headteacher

A Christmas Carol
We are delighted to confirm that our Christmas Production of ‘A Christmas Carol’ will take place on Saturday 25th November 2017 at Queen Edith Primary School. With the help of a large, 60cm tall, pop-up book and lots of humbugs, this very entertaining version of Charles Dickens’ classic tale will take you back to Victorian England.

 

Reception - Parts Of The Body
This week we have been learning about the parts of the body, we started by learning the song ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’. We then drew around each other and had a go at labelling the parts of the body.  Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Reception.

Year 1 - Place Value
Year 1 are exploring place value. We have been ordering numbers and using number lines. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 1.
Year 2 - Art
In year 2 we have been developing our still life drawing skills. We went outside and drew a variety of plants using pencils. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 2.

Year 3 - Science
In Science we are discovering the bones in the human body. We had a go at fitting a skeleton together from scratch and carefully painting the bones onto a silhouette to help us learn where they are in the body.Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 3.

Year 4 - Literacy
In literacy we researched Roman houses, and then wrote an advert convincing others to buy it! Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 4.

Year 5 - West Stow
Year 5 recently visited West Stow as part of our Ancient Britain topic. During the trip, we were able to see a variety of Anglo-Saxon huts including a sunken hut and free-standing huts. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 5.

Year 6 - South America
Year 6 have started our topic on South America by using the atlases to locate the different countries within the continent and find their capital cities. We also looked for key features such as rivers, rainforest and mountains. Click here to read more.
