  • 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.

  • Summer arrives in Ocean

    Keeping to our summer theme the children have been listening to and following instructions to make their own yummy edible flowers. We have been having lots of discussions on keeping healthy and safe in the hot weather and how to keep ourselves cool and hydrated.

  • Aztecs in Stingray Class

    This week has been another busy week in Stingray Class. 

    The children have continued working on their Non-chronological reports linked to the Aztec's. They have identified the features and started to gain an understanding of how one should be set out. In maths we have started looking at multiplication and division sums.

    In topic the children have created Aztec head dresses using a variety of materials and they have identified where cocoa beans grow in the world.
