Ruyton History

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.


Spring Term Topic

In Nursery for the first half of Spring Term our topic will be ‘The Senses’. We will also be learning about the Chinese New Year and how this is celebrated. Please note anything that your child may need to bring in to support this topic.


Homework for final week of term.

Please make sure the children have read their reading books and marked down the page number in their reading diaries.  They will get marks on their record to go towards the final prize hamper for the most reading entries in their reading diaries.

Victorian School Trip Planning

For homework this week the children have a leaflet about Park Hall Farm and Victorian School.  Can the children please write down a list of at least 5 things that they are looking forward to doing at the Victorian School.  Also, can they write down 5 bullet points about what to remember when going on a school trip.  This might be about their behaviour, staying safe, dressing correctly or any other ideas they might have.  Work needs to be brought back to school on Monday morning.  More information about Park Hall Farm is on their website.

Rabbits Class Homework

This week we began our maths topic on Measurement.  For homework, can the children please find a recipe at home.  Write out the recipe and note down the measurements used, this can be either grams and kilograms or other measures such as teaspoons, cups, pinches etc.

Can they please copy out the recipe in their homework books.

Children MUST read to you or another person over the weekend and make a note of this in their reading diaries. Please then ensure both reading books and diaries are in school each day.

We are challenging the children to find a ‘fun’ or ‘silly’ time to read to another person – for example while someone is cooking the dinner – sitting in the kitchen reading. Alternatively reading to a sibling while they take a bath, reading while waiting for a bus – the children can find a fun time and place to read.

Spellings are listed on the spellings page.
