Welcome to RAK's class page.

We will share our interesting news and events here.

We had a royal visitor in RAK! King John came to visit us and sign The Magna Carta.

Without this important document people would not be treated fairly. We are glad King John signed the Magna Carta.

The Hygiene Angels

Wednesday 10th June 2015

Did you wash your hands carefully today? The Hygiene Angels visited Reception to show us just how dirty our hands can get! There are germs everywhere that can make you sick! The Hygiene Angels tested to see how many germs were on our hands using a swab. Some of us were germ detectives and watched how quickly germs can spread from our hands to different surfaces. RAK had the cleanest hands! Well done to everyone! Have a look at our photographs.

The children in RAK enjoyed a visit to St Philip's Cathedral in Birmingham. We sang songs on the coach and looked out for any familiar buildings and interesting cars on the way. We spotted two bright pink cars! We learned that the Cathedral has a huge chair for the Bishop and about the special person the Cathedral is named after called St Philip. We saw beautiful stained glass windows that tell important stories and learned about the way that Christians worship. There are many beautiful features inside and outside the Cathedral.


We celebrated Saint George's Day on the 23rd of April. Everyone dressed up in red. That is the colour of Saint George's shield.

Did you know he is the Patron Saint of England? Saint George sounds like a really brave person. Why not share this story about Saint George to find out more about him.

Did you know the 23rd of April is Shakespeare's birthday?

He is a very famous English playwright. People all around the world love to read his stories and poems and watch actors perform his plays at the theatre.

Our visit to Birmingham Cathedral.

St Philip's Cathedral.



St Philip's was built in the early 18th century in the Baroque style by Thomas Archer and is located on Colmore Row, Birmingham, England.[ It is the third smallest cathedral in England after Derby and Chelmsford.

The Cathedral Church of Saint Philip is the seat of the Bishop of Birmingham.  It was built as a parish church and consecrated in 1715. St Philip's became the cathedral of the newly formed Diocese of Birmingham in 1905.


The children in RAK enjoyed dressing up in colourful clothes to celebrate Diversity Day. We learned about the challenges our friends face and explored different activities to help us to think about all the differences we have.
