  • Little Things Make A Big Difference

    Published 31/01/20

    “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

    Recently, Year 6 have been studying Inua Ellams’s magical retelling of, The Little Prince, the much loved story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. On Thursday 30th January, Year 6 were lucky enough to be invited to watch a performance of the story, directed by Femi Elufowoju jr, at Stratford Circus. This is part of Ranelagh's commitment to ensure Every Child ia a Theatre Goer.

  • We're Going on a Theatre Trip...

    Published 08/01/20

    As part of Ranelagh’s Every Child A Theatre Goer, Year 1 swished and swashed their way to Stratford Circus in December  to watch We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.

    The Little Angel Theatre company brought the fabulous book alive.It had catchy tunes, a quartet of puppeteers who switched to being live performers and ,of course, the delightful puppets.

    The Year 1 children were mesmerised and were thoroughly entertained .

    ‘The puppets were amazing’ said Lilly May a Year 1 pupil.

    Their teachers Mrs Afshan and Mrs Malik were amazed at how the children reacted to such an opportunity.

     Mrs Afshan , Ranelagh’s Year 1 lead, said, “It was wonderful for the Year 1 children to see a much loved book on the stage. It was also great to have the opportunity to go to a real theatre."


    She continued, "Theatre not only entertains and fires  their imagination, it gives our children opportunities to develop their  curiosity and to see creativity in action."

  • The Voices That Begin The Change

    Published 29/10/19

    Ranelagh Playground was a cacophony of sound as the children sang their protest songs to raise awareness of what the local community could do to save the planet. As one of Year 6 posters warned –Earth First.It was our annual Action Project Event. Every Autumn term, the children learn geography skills and develop their global awareness. They learn about different areas of the world- aquatic, desert and forest biomes and find out how humans have impacted on the area.

    Year 6 have been learning about how our local area has an impact on the Arctic Circle. Children had to persuade parents to sign a petition to stop a planned expansion of London City Airport.The children logged the flights coming in and out of the airport and found out that 7 flights departed during their lunchtime.They then calculated that these flights were responsible for destroying 3m² of Arctic ice due to their carbon emissions contributing to the greenhouse effect.


    In  Year 5, children learned about how extreme climates are effecting our global population. They raised money and awareness for the Red Cross .In Year 4, the children researched how desertification is damaging our climate. The children made seed bombs and raised money for the Great Green Wall. The Great Green Wall is an initiative that is endeavouring to end desertification in the Sahel by planting desert trees all along this region to regenerate the land and create sustainable lives for the people who live there.

    The Rainforests were being saved in Year 3, the children made Rainforest calendars using the artistic pointillism style to draw animals and features of the rainforest. The calendars raised money for the Rainforest Foundation UK, a charity which tackles deforestation locally and globally. Year 3 activists also designed leaflets for children in Years 1 and 2 outlining key facts about climate change and dangers to the rainforest. 

    In Year 2 the children baked delicious penguin biscuits to sell and raise money to help save the Arctic animals from the melting ice. The penguin biscuits raised money for the World Wildlife Fund, an organisation that protects our planet’s iconic animals.
    In EYFS and Year 1, the oceans were being saved. In Year 1 the children talked about what is happening to our oceans and why should we care? They then discussed how they can be part of the change and painted beautiful ocean scenes onto bags to reduce the use of plastic bags and promote the use of reusable bags. This helped in raising funds for ‘The Plastic Oceans UK - experts on plastic pollution . In EYFS cakes the colour of the deep, blue sea were sold.

    It is incredibly important that our children realise that humans can have a positive impact on this planet and that they are the voices that begin the change.

  • #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
