Good bye and thank you Mrs Griffiths


After 27 years at Ravensmead Mrs Griffiths has decided that it is time for her to retire. Most of these years have been spent as a Teaching Assistant. This has placed her in the unique position of ‘teaching’ and getting to know every child (and many of their parents) in the school. Mrs Griffiths has been there when you have nervously handed over your precious son or daughter at the door.  She has been there to reassure you and your

Ancient Egyptian day in Y3/4


On Thursday 19th July, to bring their topic of Ancient Egypt to an end, the children of Year 3/4 had an Ancient Egyptian day. They were all asked to come dressed as somebody from the time period, costumes included Pharaohs, slaves and even mummies. We also had a very impressive Anubis costume. Throughout the day, children took part in a number of activities to bring their topic to an end including making papyrus paper and neck collars, and learning how

Foundation Stage visit National Adventure Farm


On Monday 17th July, all of the children visited the farm and had a very busy day: planting beans and retelling the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’; looking for bugs in the growing garden; going on a trailer ride looking for hidden scarecrows; stroking the animals and having lunch (always a highlight of a trip for the children!). The sun was shining and the children were smiling!

In the garden there are raised beds which are going to be used to grow vegetables and flowers, there is a bird house, shed for tools and a water butt so children will be able to maintain the garden.

KS1 Jack and the Beanstalk production


This year the KS1 production was Jack and the Beanstalk. All the children in Y1 and Y2 enjoyed taking part. We sold 340 tickets for the three performances which invited family along to see their children take to the stage. Thank you to everyone who attended. Proceeds went towards the three radio mics used in the show and we’re hoping to use the rest to help purchase a professional lighting rig for future performances. Here are a few quotes we

Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside!


Year 5 and 6 had a lovely day in Llandudno on 29th of June – despite the dreadful weather. They took the tram up the Great Orme and enjoyed a tour of the Copper Mines before treating themselves to an ice cream and a short stroll along the prom. Check out Archie and Sharntae’s report on the Roving Reporters page.

Ravensmead choir perform at Audley Theatre


On Saturday 1st July, our choir performed two songs in the Music thru’ the Decades show at Audley Theatre. They sang  Skye Boat Song and ‘When I Grow up’ from Matilda. It was a sell out show with all proceeds going to Douglas Macmillan Hospice and was a fantastic experience for the children to perform on stage in such a wonderful venue. They were superstars and we’re really proud of them! Here’s what Ruby had to say about it: On
