Norwich Castle - March 2018


On Thursday 8th March, Ravensmere Infant School visited Norwich Castle as part of their learning on Castles.


We had a fantastic time meeting some of the residents of the castle and learning all about what life was like living in the castle.


The children had the opportunity to handle and explore various objects that were several hundred years old as well as having a go at making their own pennant. They also learnt what it was like to work in the castle and about the types of jobs that different people had.


We all had a brilliant day and have enjoyed bringing what we learnt on the trip back in to the classroom.



World Book Day - March 2018


Due to the heavy snow, we rescheduled our World Book Day for Friday 9th March and were so impressed with the amount of children that were able to come to school in such fantastic costumes!


The children also took part in some book themed activities throughout the day!

Experiments - January 2018


Reception Class at Ravensmere have been participating in lots of exciting experiments this week.


They’ve been experimenting with different sized hoops to make giant bubble, measuring to check there is the correct amount of water in the cup and experimenting with food colouring on the ice.




Fire Bowl - January 2018


Reception Class at Ravensmere had a fantastic learning opportunity last week.


Mrs Kershaw brought the fire bowl to Ravensmere and the children got to sit outside around the fire bowl and listened to the story of George and the Dragon.



Alien Crash Landing - 30th January 2018


Ravensmere got a surprise this week as an alien spaceship crash landed in their playground!


The children approached the spaceship very carefully and listened to see if they could hear anything inside it.


They then cordoned off the area and made signs to let the aliens know they were welcome and not to be scared!

Reception 'Campfire' - November 2017


Reception children had a wonderful evening reading stories by torch light with their adults around a 'Campfire'!


They got to enjoy a hotdog and a hot chocolate to keep them warm on a chilly night.


"A 'fire', torches, hotdogs and reading in the dark. A magical evening for the children (and the grown ups!)".


"Joshua really enjoyed his campfire stories with his brothers. His best bit was reading outside with his torch, he found it very exciting!".


"I thought this was a great idea. The icing on the cake was the hotdog!".


A big thank you to all who attended!
