Health & Well-Being Event
What a huge success! From staff & parent Zumba to kids Smoothie Workshops, we had it all. My thanks to those parents who made it, I hope you enjoyed yourselves? Feedback from the event has been very positive especially for Emma Heathcote, Dietitian, who delivered an excellent presentation on Nutrition and bought you all up to date with the latest myths about food. Our school partners Hoar Cross Hall were also there to present the raffle prizes and launch the fabulous corporate membership available to everyone within the RFSC community. I also have to thank Waitrose for their very generous donation of fruit & veg for the “5 a day” pupil workshops, we had lots of fun exploring and tasting a variety of concoctions, some quite tasty!!!!! others, well what can I say your children did test their tastebuds if nothing else.
I hope to do more health & well-being events soon so watch this space.
Snorgh and the Sailor
Wow! What an exciting week we had during a whole school book week. We started the week being faced with a bath tub in the middle of the court yard! It was filled with all things beach related, including ‘LOST AT SEA’ spelt out in only shells! We went on to read the exciting story of Snorgh and the Sailor and had a fabulous week writing, reading and even dancing around the story! We are all authors, readers and performers here at RCFS after all!
Our partners Burton Albion came in to school and helped develop a dance with each of the classes based around the story. This is what they had to say about our pupils. ” The group work carried out by the children was fantastic. They showed excellent communication skills, shared ideas successfully and this meant that they created a piece of movement they were proud to show the rest of the school.”
During each class session Burton Albion were asked to judge the house teams for creativity and teamwork. The dance day house competition overall results are as follows:-
Joint first with 55 points each, Clarke & Baggot
Third place went to Paget with 50 points
Fourth place, Drabble with 45 points.
As you can see it was a very close call across the teams.

Children In Need November 2018
Thank you to all the children and families who supported our children in need day. We all enjoyed seeing each other dressed in no uniform and it was great to see some children in their Pudsey t-shirts. The children enjoyed their ‘t-shirt’ designing competition and the teachers enjoyed looking at all the different creative designs. Well done all.
Congratulations to our Y1 overall winner whose design was really creative and effective incorporating collection boxes on the design. Congratulations also to some Y4 pupils who completed their own sponsored silences and added to our money raised.

Remembrance and Poppy Appeal
Well done to all our children in our remembrance assembly last week who respectfully remembered those who have died for us over many wars. Our history ambassadors proudly raised our remembrance flag which will stay up all through November to help us remember.
Thank you to the two Y4 pupils who walked with Mrs Hanson at the village parade on Sunday and laid a wreath on our behalf. It was lovely to see so many Richard Clarke pupils, past and present at the parade. Our children make us all so proud.
Thank you to our school community for supporting the British Legion Poppy Appeal. We will be handing over our donation to The British Legion.
