Last Thursday in toddlers we introduced the children to a variety of different fruits. We talked about the different colours, shapes, sizes and textures and also let them have a feel of each piece of fruit. Then each of children were offered a piece of fruit to try to see if they liked it.

Recently we read The Little Red Hen to the toddlers. They really engaged in the story so we decided to make our own bread. Some children helped to make the dough in the morning, taking turns to add each of the ingredients. In the afternoon each child was given their own piece of dough to knead and model. We then put it in the oven to bake and they all took their bread home at the end of the day.

Our Early Years children are fed up with this cold weather and asked for an airport so they could fly to somewhere warm.
We have also been learning about keeping healthy and have been in the hall doing fun exercises and then feeling to see if our heart was going faster! We have talked about foods which good for us and those which are not. The children also said what lunches they would like on the menu and told Maggie our cook.

This month, the children in Baby Nursery have enjoyed playing outdoors in the fresh air! They have explored the gardens and nursery grounds and learnt new physical skills.
Toddlers have been busy with many activities including being creative and imaginative with different painting techniques. Car printing, hand painting and cling film art are just some the activities taking place at toddlers.
On Tuesday, Hunter the Husky visited our Early Years Department.
Whilst on our welly walks and playing outside, we have been looking and talking about winter. We watched a PowerPoint about arctic animals and the children were interested in the Husky, so we arranged a visit. The children were able to ask Lewis, the dog owner, questions about Hunter, including how far he walks and what he can pull. All the children were able to stroke Hunter if they wished and give him a treat! Lewis also showed us how to brush and keep Hunter clean. Good fun was had by all, including all the extra staff who came to see our visitor!
Following an informative assembly about poverty, Year 7 launched an appeal for items to be donated in support of the Rucksack Project for the Wellspring. Staff, parents and pupils have all been very generous and it was really amazing to see just how much our school community gave. Miss Hammond and Mrs Pittman would like to thank everyone for their support.
Over the past few weeks our Year 9 pupils have taken part in a Christmas cake decorating competition. Students had to come up with a design and then decorate their cake. Some baked their own full size Christmas cake while other worked as teams to produce mini cakes. The results were very impressive and it will be a tough choice deciding the winner.
The Baby department had a lovely day for their Christmas party. We had a play in our Winter Wonderland, sang Christmas songs and had a little boogie! At lunchtime, the children enjoyed a variety of different party foods before receiving a visit from Father Christmas.
Oh dear, it looks like Elvis the Elf has been up to naughty tricks in Early years this week. We think he is trying to trick us and get us on Santa’s naughty list!!!! That is never going to happen because all the children are far to kind and helpful. I think next week we are going to have to show Elvis just how good we are because we want Santa to come on Christmas Eve.

The past couple of weeks have been extremely busy; Dawn and Sam have created Santa’s Grotto in our role-play area. We held three Parent Workshops this week where parents came in to help make and wrap the presents, decorate the tree and write Christmas cards.
We had a special delivery from Santa, he sent us Elvis the Elf, to make sure that we are being kind and helpful (all so we can get on that special list). Each night he will fly to the North Pole and tell Santa all about what we have been doing.
We had a very nice visit to Simply Books in Bramhall on 30.11.17.The winners of the Halloween Story competition chose their prizes and we had ice cream and drinks to celebrate!
Recently a few of our pupils who are studying BTec Music went to The Manchester Academy to look into the music industry and how live music venues are managed.
They were given a tour by the Head of Events & Venues and were given access to all areas, including the room that Ed Sheeran and Prince both used when they had gigs there!
The trip inspired the students to consider careers in live music, but also gave insight into what it takes to make sure such events run smoothly.
This Thursday, 30th November 2017, Ramillies Hall School will be holding an Open Morning from 9:30 until 12:00. Prospective pupils and their parents are invited to have a tour of the school and speak to our pupils, parents, and Headteacher.
We are a small independent mainstream school who specialises in supporting children with dyslexia and other associated learning difficulties. We offer small class sizes and a tailor-made education to ensure all our children reach their full potential.
For more information, please contact the school office on 0161 485 3804 (option 1) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Early Years helped to raise money for Children in Need by wearing ‘Red, yellow or spotty’ clothes. We decorated small cakes and we visited the Junior school with a letter to invite them to come and buy our cakes, as well as our families. We even made spotty paper to decorate the top to sell our cakes from!
During the week, we had fun painting Pudsey bear pictures and hanging them on the walls for the day. Then during Thursday night, they all escaped to the field. Therefore, on our Friday welly walk, we went to bring them back. We even invited some of the toddlers along to help! However, we still had time to say hello to the horses as they wait for us to come.
The whole nursery raised £95 in total as the other department had activities going on as I am sure you have seen.
Last week the children in Baby Nursery had lots of fun helping to raise money for ‘Children in Need’. They were very busy throughout the week baking cakes to sell and on Friday they enjoyed dressing up in red, yellow and spotty clothes. They took part in lots of fun and ‘spotty’ activities and an exciting day was had by all.
Thank you to all of the parents who bought and baked cakes and for all of your wonderful donations.
The Toddlers have been outside practicing their balancing skills. A couple of the children even tried walking sideways on the beams.
Today some of our Year 8s and 9s went to the National Football Museum in Manchester. After eating their packed lunches, there was some food left over.
Outside the museum there was a homeless man who the children quickly noticed and two pupils, Nathan and Sean asked Mrs Archer if they could give the remainder of their untouched food and drink to the man. Mrs Archer took the boys to him, where the man gratefully took the food and expressed his gratitude.
Mrs Archer advised the group that this was a lovely act of kindness, but reminded the pupils that they should not approach strangers unless accompanied by an adult.
Last week our Juniors organised an event for Children in Need and raised a fantastic £168.29. They arranged a cake sale, Name Pudsy's Cousin competition, Hook a Bag and Guess the Number of Buttons in the Jar. Children and staff were also encouraged to wear something spotty and bring in a donation.
On Monday the Juniors, along with Mrs Archer, took the proceeds down to the RBS in Cheadle Hulme, where Kate the cashier helped them to count the funds and fill in a paying in slip.
Well done Juniors for organising a successful event.
