Raughton Head C of E Primary School
We have all had a lovely Easter break and a are all looking forward to the warmer days of the summer term. While the children were off school Rod Phillips very kindly organised a team of workers to help us to prepare the early years play area for our outside learning space. In September we will be welcoming at least 12 new children into our school and sadly saying goodbye to 6 of our year 6 children. With such positive numbers we are hoping our outdoor learning space will allow us a little more flexibility in the number of children we can accept into our school while still being able to maintain our unique family atmosphere. How exciting that school is prospering so much.
In school we are busy learning about dinosaurs in class one, sadly, we can’t meet one for real but we will be having a visit from the reptile department at The Lake District Animal Park to learn more about these prehistoric animals.
Class two will be very green fingered this half term with their topic ‘the secret garden’, inspired to find out more from a talk with Lynne Brunetti a local gardener who visited the children and told them more about what the job entails.
Class three are exploring the works of Darwin and his impact on science and the diversity of life and will also enjoy the visit from the reptiles.
All classes are enjoying the return of cricket training and our After School Sports clubs are busy with at least 10 children attending a club after school,
With the return of playgroups we eagerly await our first ‘stay and play’ session for parents and their under 5s. How nice to be allowed to have the children back in school and to give them chance to use our fantastic space.
Tours of school can start again, so if you are interested in visiting for a place in the future pop us an email: and we can arrange that for you.
