  • WWII in Stingray Class
    Stingray's have made an excellent start to this terms work and topic which is all about World War 2 over the past week and a half
    We have done lots of research via the internet and found out about when the War started, who was involved and some of the devastating effects it had on children living through the war.
    The children enjoyed watching the TV programme 'Good Night Mister Tom' which gave them an insight into what it was like for a child their sort of age to be evacuated.
    And finally, the children have enjoyed building World War 2 models out of k'nex and Lego and making a paper Spitfire.

  • Summer Fun Day at the Ridge Academy
    Huge thanks to the Big Lottery Celebrate funding for supporting our wonderful Summer Fun Day.  This year the sun shone and it was hot, hot, hot but that made the day even more special for all who attended.  We have families from the local community, parents and friends of our own pupils, the police, the fire brigade, Cheltenham football academy and more at the event.  With bouncy slide, castle and sumo suits, an ice cream van and stalls run by each classroom there was plenty for everyone to do.

  • Summer continues buzzing in Ocean Room

    This week in the Ocean Room we have still been holding on to the summer. We have looked into the life of a bumble bee and how important they are to society. The children have created their own buzzy bee finger puppet and they look great! We have baked some yummy multicoloured cakes which was great fun mixing all the different colours together. The Ocean Room children have been making a big effort this week with their targets, with lots of them reaching their given aims.

  • Pirate adventures in Seahorses

    As part of our pirate topic Seahorses have been learning how to write descriptive sentences using adjectives and positional language to describe their settings. They then created a pirate character and a wanted poster. They have  done a fantastic job and we are looking forward to writing our pirate adventure stories soon.
