  • #HelloYellow

    Published 16/10/19

    On Friday 11th October, Ranelagh was awash with different shades of yellow as the children and staff showed their overwhelming support for World Mental Health Day.

    The event allowed us to learn how important it is to look after our minds as well as our bodies. Resilience is one of our 5Rs  and we recognise the importance of knowing sometimes ‘it’s okay not to be okay.’

    The children know they can talk about their feelings and that teachers at Ranelagh as well their parents/carers are here to listen to them.

    Lessons throughout the week helped the children to understand why they are feeling how they do and what they can do to try and make themselves feel better.

    And that only be a good thing!‚Äč

  • Newham Harmony and the New Youth Voice Choir

    Published 12/07/19

    This week, our KS2 choir put on an incredible performance in collaboration with Newham Harmony and the New Youth Voice Choir. Children learned 10 songs from cultures all around the world and performed them in conjunction with choirs from other schools, young musicians and a live orchestra.
    “I love performances. Everyone was so happy to watch us and there were all of these people who conduct and put in all that effort. The parents weren’t joining in at first and at the end all the parents were joining in and that made me happy. And I like our t-shirts,” Aicha (4T3) said.
     It was a long event on Monday, but Ranelagh children showed continuous enthusiasm and top-notch show biz attitude!

  • When I grow up, I want to be a.......!

    Published 21/06/19

    Children from Ranelagh took on the role of teachers in our school last Friday. The children were absolutely amazing.

    Adele in Year 3 (Mini Mrs Lawrenson) hosted Friday’s celebration assembly. Mrs Lawrenson’s job is so difficult she had 3 Mini teachers – Sasha and Saffron from Year 3.

    The children enjoyed being in the staffroom during break where they were treated to hot chocolate.

    In the afternoon, bankers, doctors, police, dentists and scientists came to show children what they could be in the future.

    "I am going to work very hard practising my times tables, "said a child from Year 4, "because I want to be a banker."

  • In Remembrance

    Published 14/06/19

    Reporters - Skye and Kelvin

    On Thursday 24th May 2019, Year 6 children travelled to Ypres, in Belgium to lay a wreath at the Menin Gate for all the unknown soldiers that sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

    Ruqqayah, Jobelle and Kelvin showed incredible respect and reverence as they were chosen to lay the wreath. They were the youngest there and showed amazing maturity.

    This incredible and moving event ended a day’s long travel to the trenches and the Tyne Cot Cemetery where there lay dead the bones of thousands of soldiers. 

    This enriched the children’s understanding of the sacrifice people made in order to give all people the opportunities that they have today.

  • Up the Creek

    Published 10/06/19

    Children in Year 5 donned cagoules, wading boots and long walking sticks to clamber through a river. Deptford Creek or ‘Deep Ford’ was named after its tidal Creek. As the tide falls each day it exposes almost a kilometre of riverbed. As you can see, the children loved wading across it.

    As part of developing the children’s skills of geographical enquiry, Year 5 found out about the many stories the river bed can tell. The Creek has a long history of fishing, ship building and dockyards. Trades and industries from chemical works to tidal mills and slaughterhouses have all used its banks. There is still evidence on these river beds and Year 5 were keen to discover.

    “It was amazing, “said Nasim “We were able to see many live animals such as leeches, shrimps , flounders and we even found a crab’s exoskeleton .”

    “The water level was high but we were able to see things beneath the water. There was even a pair of old trousers.”  Brian stated “But it was able to teach us about how we need to keep our rivers clean. We have come a long way since the Victorians used to throw horseshoes and old meat carcasses in to the river.  I will definitely be recycling all my waste.”
