We are always keen for our children to participate in sport outside of school.   We have contacts with a large number of external clubs for both boys and girls in a variety of sports.  If your child would like to continue playing sport or would like to get some extra practice, in time for the December trials please get in contact with some of the clubs listed here External Clubs.

If any children would like a pair of football boots for free, please ask them to see a member of the PE Team.  If you have any boots lying around at home, we are always very grateful for donations.

Congratulations to Alisha, Lila, Izzy, Mia, Jakub, Loucas, Luca and Conor who were announced as our Sports Journalists for this academic year.

Congratulations also to our Rattlesnakes (boys football) and Rebels (girls football) who both started their league campaigns with victories.  The Rattlesnakes convincingly defeated Alma and Churchfield 5-1 and 9-0 respectively. Meanwhile the Rebels battled to a hard-fought 2-0 win over Edmonton County.

Raglan Art News

Environmental Art

A group of Y6 children enjoyed a trip to the local park to explore making colourful and imaginative artwork out of natural materials in the beautiful autumnal environment.

Clubs

Art Clubs have begun this week.  Y2 were surprised to learn that the multi-coloured oddly shaped vegetables they were drawing were actually 'organic' courgettes from my local island farm shop!  Y3/4 are focusing on textures and have begun to create stunning sunflower collages using a range of materials including pasta, peas and seeds.  Y5/6 will be focusing on exploring colour inspired by autumn.

Wanted

Y2 need small/medium cardboard boxes, plastic bottles and lids to make alien sculptures. Please bring them to the Art Room.

Annual General Meeting - Friday, 5th October

As we are a registered charity we are required to have an annual AGM.  This will be held on Friday, 5th October from 9-10am.  Every parent at Raglan is an automatic member of the RSA and therefore welcome to come along.  We would love to see you there. There will also be coffee and cake.

At the AGM we vote in a committee who have responsibility to coordinate activities for the year.  Anyone can be nominated for any of the positions including; Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Vice Treasurer and Secretary. If more than one person is nominated for a post, then those present at the meeting will vote.  The person with most votes will be elected.

Last year the RSA introduced an App called Classlist to help keep in touch with other parents/carers in the school.  You can also access it through a web browser. Please sign up if you haven't yet done so at www.classlist.com and search for The Raglan Schools.  There is now another Raglan school on there so please select the right one :)
