New School Council
Democracy Week – School Council
Children in KS1 and 2 have taken part in our school elections for this year’s school council.
At Ravenscroft, we believe that the pupil’s voice is extremely important. Each child has had the opportunity to prepare and present a speech to their classmates outlining why they think they would make a good class representative. During our assembly, we spoke about how this process relates to real life and how it was important to vote for the person they believe would do the best job of representing their class. Each child was then given one anonymous vote and the child with the most votes was then elected as the new class representative.
Following the elections of the class representatives, Year 6 then prepared their Head Boy/Head Girl speeches. The candidates presented their speeches to their class and the two boys and two girls, who had received the most votes, were then informed that they would now present their speeches to the whole school. On Thursday 15th September, the 4 candidates presented each of their speeches to the whole school. They were fantastic and did themselves very proud. Each child, in each class then voted again for their Head Boy and Head Girl. The two children who were runners up were informed that they would serve on the council as Deputy Head Girl and Deputy Head Boy. Once again, it has been excellent to watch the children support one another, really consider why they would be a good role model and how respectful they have been through the process.
It now gives me enormous pleasure to announce our 2016/2017 School Council as: (click on their names to hear their speeches)
Year 1 – Isabelle Latimer
Year 2 – Summer Mansi
Year 3 – Kai Greenough
Year 4 – Chloe Jones

On Wednesday the school football team played their first round of matches in the league.
They played three games in total;
a friendly against Westvale which they won 4 – 0 ,
a league game against St. Laurences in which they won 2 – 0
and against Kirkby C of E which they also won 2- 0.
The whole team played well and with such a fantastic start to the season the future is looking good.
Well done to all of the team !
The children in Years 1-6 were treated to a special concert delivered by the Knowsley Music Performing Arts team.
There were a variety of instruments consisting of recorders, trumpet, electric guitar, keyboard and drums. The team were absolutely fantastic and the children (and staff ) really enjoyed listening to the music performed. Children also learned about some of the elements of music (e.g. pitch and texture) and sang along to some popular songs.
I hope the childen have now been inspired to learn some of the instruments on offer in our school.
This year instrumental lessons will consist of :
Year 3 – Ukuele ( whole class)
Year 4 -Guitar groups
Year 5- continued lessons for flute groups
Year 6- continued lessons for keyboard groups
Children in Years 1 and 2 can join our KS 1 singing club.
Children in KS 2 may join choir ( Tuesday Lunchtimes) – Mrs Cochrane
If you would like any further information about music within our school please feel free to come and see me.
Jane Sherriff Shield for Endeavour
The winner of the Jane Sherriff Shield this year is Lukasz S from Reception. Lukasz has only been with us since Easter but in that time his academic performance has been outstanding and he has made friends with not just his Reception class but most of the school. Lukasz can often be seen at dinner time eating and talking with the older children in the Juniors.
Congratulations Lukasz from the whole school.

Awards for Sporting Dedication
It is not every year that these awards are made, They are not given out for winning a competition nor for necessarily being good at sport.
These awards are presented to pupils who show show a fantastic attitude to sport , they join in and commit to every and any sport offered. They can be counted on to step in if needed and if they are not picked for a team they do not quit or get upset they continue to train and try to get better.
The children pictured here have been the backbone of our sports teams not just this year but for the entire time they have been in school and it is their attitudes and perseverance that has led to our sporting successes.
A very big congratulations to : Lewis, Daniel, Charli, Katie and Becky you should feel very proud.
We will miss you all next year.
