Rev. Hannah Lins has sent this prayer to all the families and staff at Ruyton School. It is a beautiful prayer and she was happy that we share it with all of you on our website.
As you are aware, today, 3rd April is the last day of term. Ruyton School will not be open during the Easter break. We would like to thank all of our school community for how they have calmly continued their good work over the last few weeks; it has been a strange situation, however we have tried to give the pupils some continuity via the school website to post work that can be completed at home.

Good afternoon all!
We are very aware that the children will possibly be spending more time on the internet than usual at the moment for various reasons. E-Safety is a high priority in school and we regularly speak to the children about keeping safe on the internet. The DFE have put together a list of websites to help parents and carers keep their children safe online. They are as follows:
- Internet matters – for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
- London Grid for Learning – for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
- Net-aware – for support for parents and careers from the NSPCC
- Parent info – for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
- Thinkuknow – for advice from the National Crime Agency to stay safe online
- UK Safer Internet Centre – advice for parents and carers
Feel free to have a look at any of these to support you at home and please remind your children to stay safe online!
Year 1 have been busy researching vehicles and axles this term. After designing the vehicles that we were going to make, we collected all of the resources that we thought we might need. We carefully measured and cut the materials to the sizes that we needed and joined all of the different parts together. Some of us found it really tricky to get the axle and wheels just right so that they turned!
As part of our new English topic on recipes Hedgehog class made some slime this morning. They had to carefully follow the instructions to successfully creat their slime. They worked in pairs brilliantly and we all had a great time!
The year 1 children have been busy learning about vehicles and axles this term in D&T. After lots of practical work, they designed their own vehicles. Yesterday they started making their final product. This included measuring, cutting and assembling. We can’t wait to see the final product!
Young Voices 2020
A group of children in Y5 and Y6 have been going to a club called Young Voices, where you sing and practice songs for an arena concert. On the 21st of January, they set off with their t-shirts and lights bought by parents to the Genting Arena in Birmingham. With 6,349 children singing they were able to spread a smile on anyone’s faces.
Colourful lights spread across the room making our t-shirts change colour, parents took out their phone lights making the room glow. The concert finished at 9:30 and we were all exhausted but very happy. Half of us were asleep! After an hour and a half we were home, tired from the great day we had had.
