The “Always” club is in recognition of those children who “always” make the right choices in school and have a positive attitude towards their learning. The children are currently picked by class teachers to attend the “Always” club on a Friday afternoon with Mrs Goodall where they have a treat and can spend time having a chat about other things, not just school. Well done to all of the children who have already attended The “Always” Club.

To celebrate World Book Day Ravensmead invited a poet into school to work with the children. Mel Woodend (the poet) spent time with every class from reception to Year 6. They thoroughly enjoyed listening to some of her own poems and had a go at writing some of their own. We held an assembly at the end of the day to share some of the children’s work.
