  • Parents Maths Mornings

    Published 23/06/17

    Who doesn’t love a bit of Maths? The parents of Ranelagh certainly do! All this week parents from across the school enjoyed taking part in different Maths activities and games with their children.

    Each classroom played host and had different activities and games that the parents dove into. Disha, in Year 5, revelled at the chance to beat both her parents in a game of ‘Fifteen,’ choosing three numbers to make a sum of 15 before her parents could, adding that “It was awesome to have my parents in the classroom with me doing Maths. I loved challenging them both and beating them a few times!”

  • Futures Day

    Published 12/06/17

    On the 9th of June, Ranelagh played host to over 30 professionals including State Street Global Advisors, ELBA (East London Business Alliance) and members of the Home Office,  who volunteered their time to speak to and inspire the children of our school. Sharing insight about their jobs and different careers, they answered an abundance of questions from bright-eyed and eager children, curious to learn about what it takes to be a fire fighter, or a police officer, or even a financial advisor!

    The children enjoyed discussing career paths and the requirements needed to attain certain jobs, as well as the in's and out's of so many different professions. Leaving the event inspired, Malachi in 6T8 commented, “It has inspired me and helped me to decide what I want to do in the future. I’ve really enjoyed speaking to so many adults about their jobs and I’m fascinated to know more.”
