Sending Emails

Dear parents/carers,

As we return to school, parents understandably have many questions about a wide variety of topics. We wanted to clarify the most efficient way of getting an answer to these enquiries. We are attempting to reduce the volume of emails being sent to the main office as they cannot possibly have all the answers, particularly to class related questions. This, combined with the high number of emails being received, is leading to us being concerned that our families will not be getting the answers they need within an acceptable timeframe.

Below are the best email addresses for a variety of enquiries – the examples given are a best fit and cannot cover every eventuality, please use them as guides.

For the time being, the main office will still be available by appointment only. Please use one of the following email addresses:

General class/learning related enquiries:

Questions about curriculum, home learning, PE kits etc should be sent to the email address that corresponds to your child’s year group:

Nursery – nursery@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

Reception/Year 1 – earlyphase@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

Years 2 & 3 – lowerphase@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

Years 4, 5 & 6 – upperphase@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

These email addresses will be checked weekly.

Inclusion:

For questions regarding inclusion and Special Educational Needs, email the following address:

send@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

This address will be checked daily and a response sent within 3 days of receipt.

We would ask you not to contact staff members directly, teachers will not respond to emails that are not sent to one of the addresses listed here.

If you feel your enquiry is urgent then please send to the main email address:

office@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

Please think carefully about where to send your email as it will allow us to get the most accurate information back to you.

Sunflowers

We can’t believe the size of the sunflowers that we have grown in the nursery vegetable bed. Yesterday we noticed that one of the sunflowers was starting to wither and the petals were coming off.

We watched a time lapse film of sunflowers and found that it takes about 80 days to grow and then decay.

Today we are disecting sunflowers to find out more about them. We cut up the stem and looked inside it and then we removed the petals and had a go at cutting up the receptacle. we have been able to examine the stamen and see the different parts of it.

At the doctors surgery

The children are bringing all their experiences to our role play doctors surgery this morning. lots of talk about medicine and bandages as we slowly nurse the dolls and each other back to good health.

This doll hurt herself when she fell off her scooter.
They were poorly so I was getting them better.
We are being doctors. I was checking my friend.
“She’s taking calpol. All day her is sick”
“Now I will be the doctor, we’re going to do a blood test”

Dress up day

Lots of different characters arrived at nursery today, there were some Elsa’s, some Matildas, Batman, some pirates, Harry Potter, a butterfly, Pippi Longstocking, Adam’s Aquatic Adventure, a tiger, a policeman, Elmer, Belle, and some superheroes. We also had a really rock and roll princess. Well done everyone for making such an effort you all look fabulous.
