Health Awareness Day
 
 
On Friday 13th March we had a fabulous time celebrating Health Awareness Day.
The morning kicked of with Mr Newson  leading a great warm up to music session in the playground and everyone running round the track.
After that we had a whole school assembly where we were lucky enough to have a talk from Andrew Johnson who is a marathon runner. He talked about his training sessions and the importance of having a healthy diet. He told us that one of the most important things is never to give up and always believe you can do it. This is a lot like when we do our school work!
Leilaini and Scarlett then told us all about their majorette training and showed us some of their impressive moves! They are going to be competing in a competition in Barcelona later in the year.
Each class was given a grazing tray of fruit and vegetables. The children tried some of the more unusual ones and the teachers were impressed.
Throughout the day, parents joined their children in the hall to do some circuit training in the hall. This was a lot of fun and some of the parents said they felt muscles where they didn't even know they had them.
It was brilliant day with children using all our equipment and learning more about keeping fit and healthy. we are already looking forward to the next one!

Key Stage Testing 2019-2020

2017 saw the follow on from the introduction of statutory tests which in turn, saw an increase in what children are supposed to be able to achieve and demonstrate under the Government's drive to raise standards at the ages of 7 and 11 (Years 2 and 6). At Ravenswood we are always keen to give the children the very best education that we can deliver and strive to support and motivate them to achieve at the highest level of which they are capable. We keep up to date with changes and current thinking through research and professional development and have weekly staff meetings to look at ways to improve what we are delivering to all of our pupils. We cannot control what is decided by central government, we can only prepare your children for their high school and life beyond. We seek to give them a thirst for learning, a curiosity about the world in which they live and a flexible, 'have a go' attitude to all of life.We often hear that SATs are 'for the school'. True every school is judged by what is achieved in the tests and progress made  by pupils in Years 2 and 6, but at Ravenswood we believe that every child has the right to an all round education that will prepare them for their life experiences and an exciting future, one in which they can shine and be successful. Below are two links to a short video on both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 SATs but if you require any further information about them please just come in and talk to your child's class teachers, they are always here to help.

So what is your role in all of this? Working with parents and carers has a really positive impact on children's learning. It is important that, as far as is possible, your child is listened to when reading, or asking questions like 'do you like the book?' or 'what is happening in the book' can be equally useful throughout your child's school life. Having time for breakfast and getting to school by 8.40a.m is also an important part of how you can support your child in their learning. We can all help each other and, by doing that, achieve the very best for your child, which is what they all deserve.
