Welcome to Queen Edith School

Dear Parents and Visitors,

Queen Edith is a large thriving primary school and nursery situated in the south of Cambridge city. We have a diverse catchment area and have many families from abroad (speaking 28 languages at the last count!).

Queen Edith is partnered in a federation with Queen Emma, which is a 5 minute walk away. It 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

Nursery
Children in Nursery and Reception took part in a physical activity and literacy time in our school hall today.  Children took part in races and were cheered on by their friends who chanted words they had learnt from the Gingerbread Man story.  Click here to see more.


Reception
Children’s learning has been based on The Three Billy Goats Gruff this term. They retold the story, found objects heavier than a troll, though about time, acted out the story, grew cress, made bridges, painted trolls and wrote descriptions of the characters. Click here to see more.                                        



Year 1
We enjoyed learning about rhythm and pulse in music. We used African drums to play a range of different rhythms. We used animal names such as ‘Polar bear’ and ‘Caterpillar’ as our rhythm. Click here to see more.
