Residential 2018

World Book Day 2018

As part of learning about people who help us, Isla's mum came to Swallows class to talk to the children about her work in the police.  They had a great time as you can see from the pictures and were even allowed to sit in the police car.

Robins had a brilliant time at Ripon Workhouse.  We all dressed as Victorians and had fun in the Victorian classroom and doing the laundry! We also carried out some tradtitional workhouse chores and had a go at rag-rugging. Finally, we played some Victorian games and played with some traditional toys.


The infant children of Ripley performed their Nativity beautifully at All Saints Church Ripley

Welly Walk - Our children raised over £300 to help send children in Africa to school by walking 2.5 miles around the back of Ripley Castle in their wellies.

Imran came all the way over from Manchester to teach us about the Islam faith, and what it is like to be a Muslim . He shared lots of artifacts with us and explained what they all meant, and also took workshops with each class where he explained some of the traditions and routines that all Muslims must follow. We had a great time learning from him, and we now have a much better understanding of Islam.

On our trip to a traditional Saxon village , Robins found how Saxon peasants used to live years ago. We ground corn using a grinding stone, made oil lamps from clay from the ground, collected wood on an old wooden cart and defended the Saxon village from a Viking invader. As the day came to an end, we listened to a Beowulf story in the Mead Hall.It was a fabulous day

Our Year 6 children celebrated the end of their SATs exams with an ice cream and picnic and games in the grounds of Ripley Castle

Queens 90th Birthday

The children at Ripley Primary School celebrated the Queen's 90th birthday in style by dressing as Kings and Queens and holding a coffee afternoon in Ripley Town Hall.  The children had helped the school cook, Mrs Atkinson, bake cakes for the event the day before and all proceeds went to Age Concern.

STEM ICT Conference

A group of children from Years 4, 5 and 6 attended a STEM ICT Conference at Kettlesing Fellescliffe Primary School.  They had a fantastic afternoon exploring a range of new technologies!  There was a carousel of activities ranging from stop-motion filming of bridge building, to programming lego robots, to inputting codes and even trying to solve a murder!  The people running the session were especially impressed with the children's responses to their questions and challenges.  Maybe we have some future engineers at Ripley?
