Ravenswood Primary School

Week beginning 14th March 2022

Science week has been going really well so far. We started this week with an assembly on our scientist families. Thanks to everyone who sent in information and photos of themselves at work. The children loved seeing them and finding out about some of your amazing jobs.

There have been lots of experiments going on in classrooms and some science shared at home. Keep an eye on the year group pages for more information.

We also welcomed back our friends from “The Past Presents”. Last year they came to do a Tudor Day with Year 4 and it was such a success that we invited them back to repeat Tudor Day and give us a Roman Day in Year 3. These days really bring the history topics to life and the team bring with them loads of artefacts and fun for the children to engage with.

                      

Thanks to everyone who came in for Book Look this week. There was a great turn out for all of the year groups and I think the dining hall was a good space to hold the meetings. I hope you enjoyed seeing the children’s books; they definitely enjoyed sharing their work with you. If you have asked for the books to go home this weekend, please make sure they are returned on Monday so that the children can continue with their work.

Next week is Parent Consultation Week. Most of these consultations are taking place on Monday and Tuesday with a few teachers meeting parents on Wednesday. These will be in the school halls; Mr Laurie and I will be around to point you in the right direction. If you haven’t yet booked a place, please contact the office and we can let you know what is still available.

Next week we will be taking part in Sustrans’ Big Walk and Wheel. The idea behind this is to get as many children using active travel to get to school. Walking, scooting, cycling and any other active method will get your child a tick on the class list for each day over the next two weeks. There are daily prizes to schools with high levels of active travel, but the biggest prize is keeping active and fit. If you do live further away, your child can still get an active tick by parking away from the school and walking the last part of the journey. This walk should take around ten minutes. Teachers will be collecting the information each morning in class and I will let you know how we get on.

Next Friday will be our Big Walk and Wheel Delivery Day. Ali from Sustrans will be in school to talk about the School Streets project and will be available to answer questions at the main gate from 8:15 – 9am.

Can I give you an early warning about the next “In the Loop” meeting? This will be straight after drop off on Thursday 31st March. Julian Hughes will be visiting to give you an update on keeping your children safe online. His sessions are always informative and well received, so do feel free to come along.
