A HUGE thank you to everyone that supported the children this year with their ‘Numberthon’ event. In total we have raised an amazing £2598.30 which will all go towards supporting the cost of trips, visits and workshops for our children. A massive well done to Ffion, JayJay, and Joseph who managed to raise the most money for their respective key stages.

Your new school is very lucky to have you
On Monday 11th November, author Grant Koper visited Ravensmead to share his first published book ‘The day Granny’s knickers blew away.’ Grant read the story to the children, showed them the illustrations and then answered a range of questions about the book and what inspired him to become an author. If you visit Grant’s website, there is lots of information about his work and you can purchase copies of his book. Stories written by children can be sent to him
Year 6 pupils representing Ravensmead read the poem ‘Flanders Field’ and lay a Poppy Wreath at the Centotaph in Audley as part of the Remembrance Service.
During October, our Year 5/6 children visited the Lego Room at Newcastle under Lyme College. They built a robot and learned to programme it to travel around an obstacle course! A truly Fab Friday!
A group of 16 Y5/6 children have enjoyed a visit to London. They travelled by train and tube to take a tour of the Houses of Parliament. After staying overnight in a Youth Hostel, they visited the Natural History Museum before catching the train home. We’re hoping to give more children this amazing experience very soon.
Audley in Purple The School Council has raised £259.26 for ‘Audley in Purple’. All the donations will go to Cancer Research UK. The School Council would like to thank everyone for their kind donations.
On Friday 27th September, Year 2 visited Peak Wildlife Park as the Wow start to their topic ‘Australia’. The children saw a range of animals including wallabies, meerkats, warty pigs, deer, penguins, giant rabbits, lemurs, zebra and otters. A great day was had by all and we certainly did not let the rain dampen our spirits!
Thank you to all the parents, family members that have already volunteered to come into school to speak to the children about their professions. The children have really been enjoying learning about the different roles. We have already had visits from a Film Maker, Train Driver, Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapist and a Olympic, Mountain bike stunt rider! It is our intention to plan further visits throughout the Autumn Term in order to inspire our pupils to think of the opportunities
