Ealdham Primary School


At Ealdham there's always something exciting going on.

Our Arts and Crafts after school club made some beautiful lanterns for Eltham Lights Up. The theme this year was the BFG.

Children In Need 2016 was a real fun day. We dressed up in our pyjamas but believe it or not, we stayed awake all day!

Carnival 2016 was a huge success. Everyone had a fabulous time creating banners, flags, costumes and preparing food such as cucumber sandwiches and real lemonade!

World Book Day 2016 - We had a great day! The children enjoyed dressing up and also took part in competitions. They created their own story and characters made from different materials.

Comic Relief 2015 was a great success, we had great fun and raised £196.00

Science Week 2015 was great fun. Everyone had a great week making lots of scientific potions and learning lots about how Science works.

World Book Day - March 2015 was a fantastic day. The whole school enjoyed dressing up and taking part in lots of exciting literacy lessons. The children enjoyed being read a story from another Ealdham teacher.

Thursday 26th June 2014 was our annual carnival. Our theme was 'Music from the decades'. The children had a fabulous week designing their costumes, flags, watching movies and having a special treat.

Ealdham choir were extremely proud to be chosen to sing at the Mayors Inauguration at the Painted Hall on Tuesday 17th June.  Miss Shore, Miss Fisher and Miss Blackie led the choir and everyone was delighted with their performance.

On Thursday 3rd April Key Stage 1 took part in an Around the World Day where children were invited to dress up from anywhere around the world.  Throughout the day they took part in many activities including painting, designing a pattern, making their own instruments, cooking and lots more.

Friday 21st March was Sport Relief.  The children and teaching staff dressed up as a sports person and took part in many activities during the day.  Nursery and Reception took part in a range of activities including: bean bag throwing, parachute lifting, bike races and running races.  Silver and Aqua class had great fun playing basketball splitting into four teams and shooting hoops for their team.  Year 3 enjoyed playing different games and year 6 went outside for a  kick about.  All the children and adults had a fun day for a very worthwhile cause.

World Book Day was so much fun with children and adults joining in on the fun dressing up from a range of characters such as Where's Wally, The Gingerbread Man, Cat in the Hat, Snow White, Superheroes, Princesses and many more.

We were very fortunate when Kidz Fit came to visit.  This proved to be great fun with the children raving about how much fun it was, although for us adults it was quite tiring!

Skipping has taken over Ealdham!  We held a skipping workshop where children were taught skipping skills and quite complicated techniques.  The children have thoroughly enjoyed combining exercise with fun and have purchased their own skipping ropes to play with during break and lunch time.  You might even catch the adults taking a turn - recapturing their youth!

Science week was great fun.  We dressed up as scientists and took part in some wacky experiments (which was a bit messy)!
