Black History Month Special Event

Date: 17th Oct 2021 @ 10:43pm

Today Year 6 were lucky enough to have a live zoom meet up with Donavan

Christoper, a poet, also known as Rappaman. 

https://www.rappaman.com/

Not only did he read us some of his fantastic poetry, he inspired us to dig deeper and find out more about the origins of Black History Month by researching Carter G Woodson. The children really enjoyed finding out about this inspirational figure and were curious to find out more as well as enjoying listening to a fab poem about him.

Donavan also asked us to find out more about other black heroes:

The Scar eyed Queen of Kush

Ruby Bridges

Frederick Douglas

Mary Seacole

And to research the Ancient World of African Kingdoms such as Nubia and Kush as well as more current heroes like the European Championship footballers who played for England this year!

 

 

Here is what the children said after the zoom...

Goodbye Ghyllhead!

Date: 13th Oct 2021 @ 4:07pm

Goodbye Ghyllhead! What an amazing time we have had! Both Year 6 classes have been a credit to Ravensbury; they have had so much fun and challenged themselves with so many of the activities. They have displayed such teamwork and super listening skills as well as encouraging each other through challenges including the zip-wire, the night-line and even making up their own beds! We have made wonderful memories that will stay with us forever...thank you to everyone involved in making this trip an adventure to remember!

Knife Crime: Why are we talking about it?

Date: 23rd Sep 2021 @ 8:43pm

This week we had a very interesting talk about Knife Crime and it's impact. We had a visitor from Global Policing who came in to speak to us about it.

Ex Manchester City captain Vincent Komapany has voiced his opinion previously too, saying that young people need "the right amount of education and support at every level" to help prevent knife crime. 

Check out the link below to BBC Newsround for more information.

There is also a clip for what to do if you feel worried by anything you hear in the media.

Live music!

Date: 22nd Sep 2021 @ 11:17am

We were very excited on Thursday as we had Miss Kent back in the class room.  It seems like such a long time ago that we had a live music lesson and we were finally allowed to sing again.
