The topic this term is all about our local history – we have begun the term with a study of the way houses and streets have changed. This week we were looking at the origins of the school. We will be delving deeper into the history of Ruyton and we have our local expert visiting next week to help the children understand why the town is here and how history has shaped us.
I am encouraging anyone in the town to use the walking guide by Yoland Brown to support the children in understanding how the town has changed over time.
Next week we will finish our class book The Wreck of the Zanzibar and will begin reading some more books that are based on diaries which will support the children’s writing.
