Christmas Activities December 2017
Christmas Activities at Richard Clarke
We all enjoyed December in school and took part in many activities to celebrate Christmas. We had parties, Christmas dinner and performed our Christmas plan ‘Its a baby’. Our RCFS choir also sang Christmas songs in church and at the Christmas fair. A joyous time.
Remembrance Parade (12/11/17)
Well done to all for the money raised in school for the ‘Poppy Appeal’ this week. Also thank you and well done to all the children who took part in the Remembrance Parade on Sunday 12th November. I was so proud of all the children for the respectful way they conducted themselves on this very moving occasion. Mrs Hanson
Whole-School History Day (3/11/2017)
On Friday 3rd November all classes had a history morning. This was to highlight the importance of the subject and how history has affected all of our lives in someway to the present day. Reception children looked at the history behind the gunpowder plot and why we celebrate this event. Year One children learned like Egyptians writing in Hieroglyphics, doing food tasting and being Mummies! Year Two set alight a mini version of the Great Fire of London! Year Three looked at Stonehenge and some ‘real’ Vikings visited Year Four. A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all of us!
God’s Eyes (2/10/17)
Y3 had fun making ‘god’s eyes this week. We have been learning in RE about how different religions think about God. We learned about a primitive form of star weaving, reminiscent of a dreamcatcher, Ojo de Dios, or God’s Eyes are still woven today by the Huichol Indians of Mexico. The idea is to use bright colors to serve as an eye to watch over others (especially babies) and to bring good luck.

Father’s Day Picnic (20/6/2017)
It was a joy to see the children eat their lunch with a dad, uncle or grandad . The children were so excited to share their dinner time with their family in celebration of Father’s Day. The sun shone and so did the smiles!
A Glorious Trip to Gladstone (13/6/2017)
Wow! What a fantastic trip Year Two had at Gladstone Pottery Museum! It is a working museum so we were able to see pottery being made live in action! We went in the huge kilns but don’t worry, they were not in use! We asked so many questions and we even got the opportunity to create our own plate in the style of Clarice Cliff!

Year One visit Dudley Zoo (27/03/17)
On Monday 27th March, Year One went on a school visit to Dudley Zoo. This visit linked with their topic Meerkat Madness. The children left school promptly to arrive at the zoo.
On arrival, the children got to see camels, baboons, and Asiatic lions. As part of our experience, we were able to feed the meerkats and have a talk about meerkats by one of the staff members at the zoo. The children loved this experience and not only did they learn more facts about these animals, but they impressed the keeper too by how much they knew!
After this, the children had a close encounter with some of the smaller creatures at the zoo. Children got the opportunity to stroke snakes and ferrets which was a wonderful experience – even the teachers got to do it too!!!
