Today we were treated to a tour of the school garden by two members of Year 5. They showed us all the produce that is growing and the office were treated to some lettuce and garlic. Currently the various Gardening Clubs are growing, lettuce, butternut squash, peppers, courgettes, beans, tomatoes, strawberries, and a fabulous selection of herbs including rosemary, mint, sage, fennel and thyme! They also took us into the Prayer garden and showed us the beautiful flowers that they have been caring for. It has been a wonderful experience for all the members of the Gardening Clubs, thankyou to all the parents that kindly donated and how lucky were we to be treated to fresh lettuce to go into our sandwiches for lunch today!!!

On Friday Year 4 visited Hampton Court. First they went to William III's State Apartments, which consisted of the Guard chamber, the Presence chamber, the Eating room, the Privy chamber and the Communication chamber. After the state rooms, the class visited the gardens and the beautiful fountain, and then to the canal where they saw many swans and geese sitting under the tree's that were shaped as mushrooms. Next they visited the Georgian section and were lucky to find the hidden door! followed by the Tudor area and the famous kitchens. Finally the day ended with a workshop held by Mistress Anne Harris who was a scullery maid. Everyone agreed they found the trip very interesting and really enjoyed their day out.
The children had the opportunity to sing at the Rose Theatre alongside many other Richmond schools on Monday morning. Choir representatives from Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 sang beautifully and were very impressive. They sang The Osprey by Lewknor School, Oxfordshire and Moana by Auli'i Cravalho, as well as completing a medley of songs with the other local school children. Thank you to Mr J for his patience, enthusiasm and good humour whilst we have been learning all our songs and thank you to Mr Oliver (long standing friend of the choir) in helping to get us to and from the venue safely.
On Tuesday our Tag Rugby team travelled to the Stoop, they were greeted by Harlequins officials. All the players ran on to the pitch like professionals and met the mascot, Harley, before their first game. They won all of their games except one, against St Mary's. When the results finally came in they found out St Edmund's had come joint first with two other teams – St Mary's and St Stephen's. Well done to our Tag Rugby team and also to the other winners too!
To celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi, the children had the opportunity to spend some time in prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament on Friday.
