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

Author Visit
Years 4, 5 and 6 were delighted to meet authors Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler who came to school to talk about their new book series ‘Defender of the Realm’,  a fantasy adventure books series for 8-12 year olds . Both guests are Emmy award winning scriptwriters of top children’s shows such as Danger Mouse, Thunderbirds Are Go, Peter Rabbit, The Octonauts, Shaun the Sheep and more. Click here to see more.

Maths Day 
The whole school celebrated an amazing Maths Day together.  We dressed up in mathematical costumes ranging from calculators to Rubik’s Cubes to times table t-shirts. During the day, different teachers taught us maths on all sorts of different topics. Click here to see more.


Children in Nursery have been settling in and exploring all our areas of learning.
They have been making models, painting, threading numbers and making patterns with shapes. They have enjoyed being outside in our Nursery garden and have been playing with the mud kitchen and enjoying our digging area  Click here to see more.

We harvested some large turnips from our garden and talked about where food grows and which vegetables and fruit grow below or above the ground. Children learned the story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’. Click here to see more.                                        

Year 1
Year 1 enjoyed our visit to the Raptor Foundation! After learning all about Plop the Owl, Year 1 were so excited to see the birds of prey! Click here to see more.                                            

Year 2 
This half term in Year 2 our Science Topic is Materials. So, not only have we been naming lots of different materials, but we have also been describing their uses, sorting them and investigating their properties. Click here to see more.

Year 3 
This week, Year 3 travelled back in time to spend the day in Ancient Greece! Dressed in our fabulous Greek outfits, we worked hard to make wax tablets, clay charm bracelets, herbal medicines and mosaics (with the kind help of our parent master-craftspeople!). Click here to see more.                                                                   

Year 4 
In maths we have started the year by consolidating our knowledge of place value and using mental and written methods to add numbers together. We also put this knowledge into practice as we tackled a puzzle, trying to sort the numbers from 1 to 20 into six groups with equal totals. Click here  to see more. 

Year 5 
Thank you to everyone who managed to come to our Class Assembly! We had a great time rehearsing and performing.
Now onto our new topic: Mountains and Rivers!  Click here to see more.

Year 6
6.1 have been lucky enough to receive individual letters from a pen pal in France. The letters were written in English and included information about their age, hobbies, pets and families. Click here to see more.
