Music is good for the soul...


I thought I'd try something new this half term! Music is good for the soul :-) and so I thought i'd choose a different artist per week to share with the children - the music they come in to in the mornings will be a playlist of that artists' songs and the morning PowerPoint will also share facts about that artist.

Here is the artists/ musicians we are/ have been listening to! I'd love to hear of any  any suggestions of your favourite bands/ musicians too.

To all of our wonderful children that we are lucky enough to teach this year and your families,

Welcome back to a new academic school year! We hope you had the most wonderful summer playing outside and making special memories, haven't we been lucky with the sunshine? 

We hope that you sleep well tonight and that you're rested and ready to go for an action-packed, fun-filled year ahead, it promises to be a busy one, just the way we like it! And if you're feeling a little anxious about coming back to school having spent all summer at home, then please know we will look after you and you will feel safe and looked after by us and with all of your friends at Ridgeway. 

We will regularly update this page with what we have been up to and additional information we have to share. Please always feel free to ask any questions you may have, we really do look forward to getting to know you all well and feel incredibly lucky to be working with your amazing children on a daily basis; we have the best job in the world!

The Roman Empire Strikes Back!

Our learning journey this year begins by considering what it was like to be a Roman... Who were they and where did they come from? They invaded Britain but why? And did they speak the same language as we do now? The Romans lived in Britain for around 400 years, so when they left did they leave anything useful for us, did we learn anything from them? We may want to know what they ate ( I heard they enjoyed eating dormice and flamingos, can you imagine?!) and what did they wear?

I think it may be time to dig out our body armour, spears, daggers and swords as we delve deep in to this fascinating time in history, are you ready for action, Leopards?! We are and we are very excited...

Extra, fun learning!
