As from next term, children in Years 5 & 6 will be allowed to bring a pencil case to school. This reflects their increasing independence and responsibility, as well as getting them used to having the correct equipment in school when they move on to secondary school.
It is not compulsory and we will continue to have a comprehensive range of stationery available to all pupils. Pupils are to take full responsibility for their pencil cases - the contents and whereabouts (!) - at all times. Equally, pupils are not expected to use someone else's equipment, unless they have been given permission to do so.
Ideally, the pencil case should contain: a handwriting pen (blue ink only please, no biros); two or three good pencils; an eraser; a pencil sharpener; and, a ruler. If children wish to include a highlighter or a selection of colouring pens/pencils, they may do so.
We do P.E. on Wednesdays and Fridays.
We believe physical exercise is very important for all children and politely request that ALL children have their P.E. Kit in school, including suitable footwear.
This term we will be playing hockey and working on aerobic fitness, in addition to the Daily 10 run.

Welcome to the Plaza 3 home page.
We are delighted to welcome the children back to school and have already had a lovely couple of days. The children have spent the first few days familiarising themselves with the routines for the plaza and thinking about what they want to achieve this term.
They have also created a Plaza Charter, which sets out their commitments to ensuring that Plaza 3 continues to be a special place to learn at Raglan School. A copy of the charter will be posted on home page in the next few days.
We have also introduced/re-introduced the children to Daily 10 - 10 minutes of running to improve their wellbeing. This was a huge success last year, demonstrated by the fantastic efforts in long distance running on Sports Day. The children have currently selected to be in either Tortoise Group (beginners), Fox Group (steady) or Cheetah Group (speedy!), and we know that we will see great progress over the next few weeks.
This year, we will update the Plaza 3 home page on a Thursday after school, to keep you 'in the loop' with learning and events.
We are both looking forward to a busy, fun term with the children. Please do not hesitate to contact either of us if you have any questions or concerns...we will do our utmost to get back to you as soon as we can.
Mrs Edwards & Mrs Merrett
