At the end of half term, Bert Procter and a representative from Audley’s LAP came to visit our school to meet the eco-group and to see their art sculpture made from plastic bottles on the Key Stage Two garden. On their visit they kindly donated 10 litter pickers for the Eco-group to use on their regular letter pics.
Y5/6 had a wonderful time on their visit to Churnet Valley Railway on June 19th. They enjoyed dressing up, tasting food that would have been eaten during this time and meeting some real evacuees who talked about their experiences. They went for a ride on a steam train and experienced what the blackout might have been like when they went through the tunnel and all the lights were switched off.
All of the children in Key Stage 1 worked hard to produce an amazing version of the traditional tale ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. The children in Year 1 all performed in a dance and Year 2 had lines to learn to help tell the story or had a character to play. Thank you to everyone who supported the show and brought tickets. The children clearly loved every minute of performing and we definitely have some budding thespians of the future!
Thank you to everyone who could make it to our Summer Fayre on Thursday 12th July. It was a successful event despite the downpour. The children thoroughly enjoyed the activities and games, especially ‘Soak the teacher’ and ‘Penalty shoot out’. Friends of Ravensmead would like to announce that about £500 was raised for our outside environment and hope you will support the Christmas Fayre, which will be our next big event.
The children had lots of fun at the discos on Wednesday 18th July.
Congratulations to the Blue Team, who won the end of year team point reward. They all enjoyed their morning playing various activities outside and of course, the extra special treat when the ice cream van arrived!
