We have had such an busy week 🐝🐝🐝

First we celebrated the amazing pieces of holiday homework made by the children. There were some fantastic  creative masterpieces. Year 5 were visited by the Greeks, year 2 painted plates to celebrate Chinese New Year and Nursery made a Chinese dragon.

Kyro wants a memories page on the school website. What a great idea!

I wonder what memories we will make next week????

Happy New Year!

Welcome to a new decade

This year we are going to be making lots of memories. Every week each class will add a memory to the memories box and at the end of the year we will have a look back at them.

Parent's Evening

It was lovely to see so many of you at Parent's Evening this week. It is always great to hear how much you enjoyed looking through your child's work and how proud you are of them.

Don't worry if you didn't get chance to attend, speak to your child's teacher and they will arrange an appointment for you to see them. 

I look forward to seeing you all next week at our Christamas celebrations.

Back to school

Date: 7th Jun 2019 @ 5:07pm

Can you believe we have been back in school a week???????? This year is flying by so quickly. Summer 2 is one of my favourite times of the school year as I get to read all about the fantastic things the children have been learning.  The teachers are busy writing the children's end of year reports which will be sent home on Friday 19th July.

The children have had class photographs taken this week. We have also had some new photographs taken for the school website, we will let you know when they are on the website.

Year 4 have been practicing hard for the multiplication tables check which they will take this month.

I can't wait till next week when I can see all the amazing pieces of holiday homework, I wonder what fantastic creations the children will come up with this time!

So Proud!

Well done Year 6!

The determination and resilience you have shown this week during your SATs has been remarkable. You should be very proud of yourselves!

Have a good  rest this weekend and we'll see you all on Monday.

What a busy week we have had!

On Tuesday we had the Easter Bonnet Parade and the Easter Craft Competition, it was lovely to see so many parents coming to support the events. I haven't forgotten that we said we would do an Easter Bonnet Parade for parents next year!

As part of there Connected Curriculum topic the children in Y4 organised a cake sale to raise money for Water Aid and Y5 organised an art auction to raise money for Refugee Action.

Today we had three assemblies to celebrate outstanding attendance. Any child who had 98% attendance or above presented their grownup with a certificate to say thank you for getting them to school every day.

I can't believe we are nearly in the Summer term, this year is flying by.

Have a lovely Easter and we will see you all on 23rd April.

It was lovely to see so many of you at Parent's evening last week. Don't worry if you didnt manage to make it, we will be in touch to arrange an appointment with you. Josie Elson, Chair of Governors, was delighted to talk to so many of you about your child's learning, she felt that the children took their learning seriously and that they were very proud of what they had achieved.

I look forward to seeing you at the Coffee and Cake meeting next week where we will talk about Assessment for Learning (AfL).

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

What an amazing week we had last week!

Who needs the X factor!!!!!!! The very talented children of Ravensbury entertained us with their singing, acting and performing. EYFS and KS1 children reminded us of the true meaning of Christmas with their renditions of the Nativity story and KS2 braved the cold to entertain everyone with their Christmas songs (it would have been even more Christmassy if we had managed to get the snow machine to work - sorry crying). The samba band, steel pans and choir put on a musical showcase to share some of the things they had been working on in there after school clubs.

The children enjoyed Christmas dinner on Wednesday. The dining room had been transformed into a magical grotto. The look on the children's faces as they entered the dining room was priceless.

Thank you to everyone who came to the Christmas celebraions, your support is very much appreciated.

Best wishes for Christmas and 2019!
