IT has been a busy few weeks for staff and pupils at Ranby House School.

They have done a variety of things including a charity crazy hair day, a trip to the Perlethorpe Environmental Centre and their new adventure playground was officially opened.

Pupils in the Prep School came dressed with crazy hair to help raise money for the Red Cross. As well as donating £1 they also brought in spare coins to fill an outline of a cross at morning break, raising over £300 in the process.

Year One and Two pupils recently spent the day at Perlethorpe Environmental Centre where they learnt about animal habitats and the historical aspects of Perlethorpe Church and Thoresby Hall.

Activities included a walk in the woods where the children built habitats for foxes, badgers, rabbits, owls, hedgehogs and squirrels, followed by a mini-beast hunt.

For the second year running pupils also recently hosted an activity morning for children who attend other schools in the local area.

Around 40 children from 10 schools came along and took part in the range of activities including tennis, orienteering and cookery.

Many of the children left with goodie bags containing key rings, chocolate cookies, windmills and various other things they had made throughout the day.

And all the pupils at the school are thrilled that their new adventure playground has now been opened.

Although the school has had an adventure playground for some time, the Ranby Parents Group decided to raise money for a more extensive and challenging site.

Each of the four ribbons were cut by four members of the school community, head boy Jake Turner, head girl Emily Mitchell and Phoebe Emmans and Ptolemy Chapman both members of the Pre-Prep.
