Writing and Representing

6 Year Joyful Writing Journey

Writing is a skill to be developed in every child and besides compositions, writing can take many forms - from poetry and narratives for leisure reading, to note taking for information.

In Edgefield, we firmly believe that developing the skills of writing in a child should not be for the sole purpose of performing well during examinations.

Therefore for every child that steps into Edgefield Primary School from Primary One onwards, he or she has become part of our family where every Edgefielder will travel on the 6 year Joyful Writing Journey to produce Big Books, Calendars, Poems, Class Newsletters and Voices; allowing every Edgefielder to see writing in a different light; that is beyond compositions for examinations, and a journey that will ignite a spark to fire up the author in every child. 

In Edgefield, we believe that “Every Child can be a Confident Speaker, a Story Teller and an Author”.

The children were excited and eagerly took up the challenge of spelling 50 words that were read out to them, such as “catamaran”, “bamboozle” and "iconoclast”. We are proud of them as they put in valiant effort in representing the school.

We are also thankful for Mrs Magoo, a parent who volunteered to accompany the pupils there. She assisted the teacher in ensuring the safety and well-being of the pupils.

Great work, Team Edgefield!

RHB-The Straits Times National Spelling Championship 2016

On 26 Mar 2016, more than 1800 pupils gathered at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre for the RHB-The Straits Times National Spelling Championship.

Eight pupils from Edgefield Primary School were selected to participate in the competition, after having gone through two intense rounds of selection at the school.

At the competition, the pupils were challenged to spell fifty words, ranging from “leisure” to “haberdashery” and “guillotine”. It was an hour of gruelling session that they were being put through. We are proud of these pupils for their commitment and dedication.
Well done, Edgefielders!
