Now a lot of us are learning at home we’re using technology more than ever! Today, the children in school have thought carefully about the risks with this and wanted to share these with all of their friends so that they can make sure they’re safe.

The Staff of RCFS


Today the keyworker children have been very busy creating a piece of artwork of all the teachers, teaching assistants and staff of The Richard Clarke First School with the help of Miss Wain. It has been a month since the school has been open fully, so here is a picture just in case you have forgotten what all the staff looks like!

Can you recognise every member of staff?

Spring Chicken!

Friday, 3rd April marks the end of the spring term. At 2.00pm, we would have been celebrating with our Spring Sing performance in the hall. It’s a real shame because we had so many lovely songs to sing!

We thought that it would be a nice idea to share our Spring Chicken song here – and you can sing along with your family at home. Remember children – to dance like crazy in the chorus!

We would love to receive some photos of your performances! If you like, please take a photo of you/your family joining in and email it to your child’s class teacher! We will then select 2 or 3 per class and share on our website. Please note – we assume permission is granted for publication on our website for all photos received.

Have fun, everyone!

A beautiful rainbow tree!

The small number of keyworker children who we have had in school today, Monday 30th March, have made this beautiful rainbow tree under the expert supervision of Mrs. Johnson. Children from reception, Y1 and Y3 were involved in making it – and we’re sure you will agree it’s lovely! The children had particular fun cutting out the bugs to live down in the grass!

We have spotted lots of rainbows in and around Abbots Bromley during our walks and drives to school – it certainly makes us all smile!

March, 2020

As you are all aware, there have been surreal and challenging times recently in the news as schools have had to close, apart from to those children  of key workers. The children in school have made this message along with the staff to our community; we miss you and can’t wait to see you all again. Take care.

World Book Day 2020

Once again, World Book Day 2020 has been an absolute blast! The children have dressed up as their favourite characters from any book that inspires them. From Gangsta Granny to Big Bad Wolf and Captain Underpants to The Queen of Hearts, we had them all and it was such a joy. We focused on bringing poetry to life  today by performing, composing and illustrating. It really has been a splendid day!

Ganas (verb): To win. To earn. To gain.

We love GANAS here at The Richard Clarke First School. Ganas is a spanish word for ‘desire’ so what better way to describe our project based home learning that bring our topics to life? The whole idea of the project is to give children ownership over their learning where they can explore their passions and share their joy.   We had a wonderful day setting up our projects, sharing our new knowledge and experiences. The levels of engagement and the quality of the learning  has been tremendous and it has proven to be such an enriching journey for all involved. Check out some of the amazing projects below!

Richard Clarke Will Remember…

On the 11th month of the 11th day of the 11th hour Richard Clarke First School pupils took time to remember those who have sacrificed their own lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we do today. Not only that, we met two inspirational members of the RAF who visited each class and talked about their roles and experiences whilst answering many many questions.   What a wonderful yet poignant day we had! Richard Clarke First School also had the privilege of playing our part in the Abbots Bromley Remembrance Parade alongside the whole community. We felt honoured.
