Ryders Hayes School


Our first whole school indoor assembly in 2 years. 🥳
Walk to school week 16th May to 20th May 2022

Children are being encouraged to “walk for wellbeing” during this year’s Walk to School Week from May 16 to 20.

Why not give it a go during this week or try parking and striding to school, the advantages of walking to school are;

Each family that walks to school is potentially one less car at the school gate and therefore one less hazard for your child.

Leaving the car at home can play a part in reducing pollution around your child’s school.

By walking to school, you’re teaching your child a lesson about road safety all the time, which is an vital life skill.

Walking can help to increase our sense of wellbeing by making us feel more awake, focused and cheerful. This is great for your child each school morning as it could improve their levels of concentration in class.
Good luck to all Year 6 children this week, we are proud of you and know you will 'do and be the best you can be ...'
Today at Forest School, Preschool experimented using a new art technique, called 'Hapa Zome'.

Hapa Zome is an exploratory art activity, which involves pounding plants to release the natural pigments onto paper or material.
Year 1 are enjoying their Teddy Bear’s picnic today to celebrate the end of term!
A Happy Easter welcome to all of our Ryders Families this morning 🐣🐰🥚

Day 4 at Edgmond Hall:

Another fantastic day where the children have enjoyed some fantastic activities. We have all enjoyed a walk around the village and local church to find out more about the history of the village of Edgmond. The children asked some fantastic and were able to make lots of links with work that we have done back at school in our history and geography lessons. We also did a spot of drawing outside the church to practise our art skills.

Teams A and B have also enjoyed games of tag archery and completed teamwork games, testing their communication and problem-solving skills.

Teams C and D loved den building and making fires. Each team used their teamwork skills to build a solid waterproof shelter and a small campfire- some were more successful than others!

This evening we had fun completing a treasure hunt and a visit to the souvenir shop.

Year 6 have all had a great time and are looking forward to telling their families and friends all about their week away.

A spikey encounter in Nursery....: Happy Hedgehogs Day!

In Nursery, today our wonderful children and staff have experienced an exciting Educational Wildlife workshop delivered by Andy and Hannah, Primary School Teachers who work with the British Wildlife Rescue Centre.

The workshop was an exciting learning experience that was brought to life with a prickly hedgehog interaction!

Whilst educating our next generation of wildlife lovers, the workshop has helped to raise vital funds for The British Wildlife Rescue Centre - helping them to rehabilitate our local wildlife at their hospital in Sandon.

The children all enjoyed listening to a story with a rescued hedgehog from the British Wildlife Rescue Centre, along with lots of creative learning activities, including making a clay hedgehog model.


Exciting news! Nursery Places Available...

We do still have a limited number of places available in our nursery for 3-4 year olds with 15 and 30 hour spaces available.

At Ryders Hayes, we provide a nurturing and stimulating environment for our young learners to grow and thrive.

If you are interested in enrolling your child in Nursery for September, please contact the School Office Team: [email protected] or call 01922 683008

Day 3 at Edgmond Hall:

Today we’ve enjoyed another fantastic, active day.

Groups B and D have all climbed the Wrekin and enjoyed the fantastic scenery and learning about the geology of the hill. They also enjoyed pond dipping and found some interesting pond life including an endangered crested newt which was safely returned back to its habitat.

Groups A and B enjoyed learning how to fence and practised their digital photography skills along with a blindfolded team work game.

This evening we had a campfire and sang some great campfire songs as well as a few Lion King songs.

We are all looking forward to a good night’s sleep and tomorrow’s activities.

Day 2 at Edgmond Hall:

It started off as a wet morning but we braved the rain and splashed in the puddles. However, it wasn’t long before the rain soon cleared and we enjoyed a sunny afternoon and evening.

Well done to teams A and C who ALL walked to the top of the Wrekin. A challenging walk at times but everyone made it to the top and felt a real sense of achievement. They also went pond dipping and loved identifying the wildlife and finding out about a pond habitat.

Groups B and D enjoyed a walk around the village to practise their digital photography skills and competed in fun games of archery.

On the evening, we all played a very competitive game of kick ball rounders. Group C were victorious!

All the children had a great day and have worked so well together, showing friendship and teamwork and making all the staff very proud.

Yesterday some of Y6 had an amazing day doing ‘in’ school activities. Clay faces, natural art pictures, and team-building activities got very competitive !!!!!!


Good morning, looking at the volume of rain that has already fallen today and the forecast of thunderstorms through the day we have taken the decision to cancel sports day this afternoon for Y1 and Y2.

We appreciate the rain may stop however the ground and site will still be slippy and wet. If we can reschedule the event we will let you know in the coming week or else the event will take place in children's PE lessons.

Thank you for your understanding.

A little update from Edgmond Hall

We have settled into routines and made our own beds

Enjoyed a yummy pizza for lunch and sausages and mash for tea.

We have been on a woodland walk and made dens and lit fires or played archery tag and worked well with our teammates with team building games.

Tonight we are going to be orienteering as our final activity before supper and bedtime.

creating a wild meadow. The award also acknowledges that
children can demonstrate what gardening skills they have
learnt and passed onto others in school. It acknowledges

At Ryders Hayes we believe that music plays a valuable role in a child’s education!

Music is an important part of school life at Ryders Hayes and we are proud of our music curriculum and the opportunities given to all children to engage in a wide range of high quality musical experiences.

Here are just a few sound clips of some of our instrumentalists performing. Can you guess the songs?


Pupils at Ryders Hayes will join thousands of children across the UK to celebrate the benefits of exercise during Walk to School Week (15- 19 May 2023).

Walk to School Week is organised by Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking as part of their National Walking Month campaign each May.

Families are encouraged to walk, wheel, cycle, scoot or ‘Park and Stride’ for the whole week to see the big differences that come from small steps, from healthier and happier children to fewer cars outside the school gates.

Children will receive an activity diary to complete during the week.


UNICEF created the Rights Respecting Schools accreditation scheme to acknowledge schools that are committed to putting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the centre of the school ethos.

At Ryders Hayes, we are proud to incorporate the convention into the very fabric of the school to enable us to improve every child’s well-being, encourage their talents and abilities, to realise each child’s potential and to equip each child to become rights-respecting citizens in their own right. Everyone, including staff and pupils, promotes the rights of children but we also instill in the children that rights also come with responsibility. The school has the expectation that each pupil takes their responsibilities as young citizens seriously.

Young carers do so much to support their loved ones, and they often develop an amazing set of skills along the way. They can be incredibly mature, compassionate, and responsible, but they can also face challenges as a result of their caring roles.

Try these stormbreaks to support your childrens’ mental health through movement, and to help build their resilience, self-care strategies, understanding of relationships, self-worth and hope and optimism.

These stormbreaks have been developed in partnership with MYTIME Young Carers Charity. MYTIME exists to level the playing field for young carers of ages 5-25, by providing them with the support, opportunities and friendship that every child needs.

This week we were very excited to welcome Sonia Sabri Dance Company, professional dance artists, to our school to work with children in Year 3 & 4 to perform the art form of miniature paintings from India and Persia through dynamic dance, colourful costumes and larger than life animal puppets!

The children in KS2 were treated to a performing peacock dance in their classrooms before an interactive performance in the hall. No words were used, but colour, drama, music and expression to tell the story which made us feel excited, happy, sad and surprised at times. All of the children enjoyed the performance and we enjoyed welcoming Sonia Sabri Dance Company to Ryders Hayes.
