Ravenswood Primary School

Week beginning 15th April 2024

Welcome back. I hope you all had a lovely break and that Easter and Eid celebrations were enjoyed by all.

I was away with Year 5 at Robinwood in the week before the Easter holiday. The children (and staff) had a wonderful time, learnt lots of new skills and challenged themselves in some exciting activities. The children were extremely well behaved for the whole trip and were tired out by the time we got back on Wednesday afternoon. The Robinwood staff were amazing and really looked after us well, so many thanks to them all. We have already booked for next year’s Year 5 children and I would highly recommend the trip to you all.




This week, Year 4 have been away at Hawkhirst Scout Camp on the side of Kielder Reservoir. I am sure that they are having a fabulous time. I will tell you more in next week’s blog.

I have been meeting this week with all of the teachers to discuss the children’s work as we begin the summer term. It has been great to listen to how well everyone is doing and the hard work and progress that they are all making.

On Thursday, Dan from Northumberland County Cricket Club, joined us to deliver cricket lessons to Year 2 and Year 3. These will continue throughout the half term. Dan comes every year and provides our young children with an exciting and expert introduction to the game.

On the final day of Spring term, the boys’ football team played in the semi final of the cup. They came up against Walkergate, the only team to have beaten them this year and I am afraid suffered a 3-0 loss. They have had a fabulous season. Well done to all of the boys who have represented the school this year.

The Friends of Ravenswood have organised another Easter Egg competition and there have been lots of lovely entries. Thanks to everyone who took part. The winners are

  • Nursery - Jacob

Just a heads up that Mrs Nockles has added next year’s calendar to the website under Parents – Term dates. Please note that the holidays and training days are correct, but Mr Anderson may change dates for things such as parents evening.
