Raughton Head C of E Primary School
Unbelievably, we are within the last 4 weeks of the academic year.
What a quick year it seems to have been and these last 4 weeks are not set to be any slower. The children in Class 3 are super excited about their upcoming residential to Liverpool. Trips include visiting the cathedrals, The British Music Experience, The Waterways Museum, The Museum of Liverpool and the beautiful synagogue (plus much, much more!)
As part of their topic Class 3 also had a lovely outing to Carol Foster's garden, learning about all the different vegetables Carol grows, hearing about her success at local agricultural shows and sampling her beautiful homemade scones...yummy.
Tullie House remains a brilliant local resource to enhance our topic work and children in class 2 enjoyed visiting the museum to learn more about the Romans. Dressing up was great, but it was fascinating to learn all about the impact the Roman Empire had in our area, in particular the creation of Hadrian's Wall.
Class 1 are busy finding out about school in the past - are you an ex-pupil who would be willing to come and talk to the children about how much the school has changed? Please get in touch if you are willing, the older the better!!
The sunshine has finally arrived and we are enjoying the summer sports - fingers crossed it stays dry for Sports Day.
Our final school trip for the year is with Mr. Slater aboard an old steam train. He says that if Mrs. Dickinson behaves, she can drive it - watch out the Eden Valley Railway!
We invite guests to attend our round up of the year in a musical celebration on
Tuesday 19th July at 6.00 pm.
Our Leavers' Service will be held in church on the last day of term.
Wednesday 20th July at 1.00 pm.
Over the holidays, weather permitting, we will be having some new windows and a fresh coat of paint all ready for the new year commencing Wednesday 7th September.
Good luck to all our year 6 leavers; Lizzie, Eve, Adam, George, Liv and Dylan and a warm welcome to all our new children and families starting with us next term - who would have thought we would reach 60 children?
What a great little school we have.
