Amazing Ranelagh Curriculum Ambassadors
The Ranelagh Curriculum Ambassadors are a team of students from across Key Stage Two who have shared a vested interest in the continued development our very own curriculum. These children volunteer their time, during breaks and lunches, to improve many aspects of school life at Ranelagh - they organise and run their own playtime clubs, they monitor classroom environments, they assist with resources and preparation, but perhaps most importantly they provide suggestions and creative ideas about what they would like their learning to look like.
This past term has seen the Ranelagh Curriculum Ambassadors flourish in many ways, and it's certainly been a busy term indeed! The children have been leading on creating a TTLT song with June Fileti, the head of ECAM (Newhams 'Every Child a Musician' programme) and other children from Curwen and Kensington Primary, they have been organising and running their own meetings every Thursday lunchtime, and they have been sharing their ideas, suggestions and curriculum interests on Google classroom (most often at home). The dedication these children have shown to our school is truly astounding - perhaps best exemplified by Gabriel's origami club that he runs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, during play and lunch. "I'm really passionate about the arts and I love origami. I wanted to share my enthusiasm with other children here in our school." You can find Gabriel outside, now with his own team of helpers, running the club by themselves, and a long queue of children lined up to see and try their hand at origami magic.
Elsewhere in the playground there is an arts and craft station, also run by our Ranelagh Curriculum Ambassadors, and soon to be a drama and dance club in the park. Look out for more exciting news from our wonderful team, and a massive well done and thank you for a great Spring term!
