13/7/18 Year Three GANAS share
Thank you so much to all the Year Three parents for a fantastic turn out for the GANAS share. The children’s projects were amazing, and this was down to your wonderful enthusiasm and commitment at home so thank you!
I loved seeing their creativity come alive, and the visiting children in Year 2 and 4 were inspired by incredible projects.
Official Flag raising ceremony 22/6/18
Thank you to 2 ex pupils for coming back to Richard Clarke to be the first to raise the flag they kindly bought for us as a leaving gift. It was a great ceremony and we sang our new Richard Clarke winning anthem and found out how the children are getting on at Oldfields. A super occasion.

All the children have again enjoyed a wonderful experience at Goat Lodge. They got to learn all about nature and wildlife. The collected and identified a great variety of mini beasts and saw the deer. They made fires and dens and artwork using natural materials. It truly is a wonderful experience out and about! Thank you to Goat Lodge and the Forestry Commission for having us again.

Harley the Hawk visit (18/4/18)
We had a wonderful day on Wednesday in school. Each class had a workshop with Katie and Harley and learned all sorts of great things from our village expert. We learned lots of science regarding things like food chains and animal classification as well as about falconry terms still used in language today like ’under the thumb’ and ’fed up’ and a little about it’s place in our history. It was fascinating and everyone learned lots of new things, including the grown ups!
We got to see Harley fly, although this didn’t entirely go to plan as Harley decided to have long rest in the tree and it took us a while (and some help from the fire service) to get him down safely! This added to the excitement and the tree will now, forever be known as ‘Harley’s Tree’ !!
The children will all have a souvenir photo to take home of themselves with Harley and Katie to remember the day by and I hope they’ve shared their new knowledge with you!
