Arts week in Hedgehog Class

Today the children have been singing ‘Three Little Birds’ by Bob Marley – link here to a children’s cartoon version if you’d like to watch it … 

We then made our own little birds from collage materials – just like the hummingbirds that live in Jamaica. Year 2 children have also made a friendship bracelet out of red, gold and green thread, significant colours to Rastafari people living in Jamaica.

As it is our World Turtle / Oceans Day in school today too, we also made collage turtles as there are four different types of sea turtles living in the seas around Jamaica – green turtle, the loggerhead, hawksbill, and leatherback turtles.

As it was so hot the children enjoyed an ice pop after morning break and lots of extra water.

What a busy morning!


Football Friendly ⚽️ ⚽️⚽️

We had a fantastic afternoon today as Baschurch brought two football teams for a set of matches. Ruyton kicked off with a great 2-0 win, followed by a Baschurch penalty in the second game leading to a 1-0 Baschurch win. The last two games were both at 0-0!

A brilliant effort from all the boys from both schools; it was fantastic to see such talent and effort.

A special thank you to ex-pupil (and football legend!) Will Thomas and his friend Sam who came and refereed the matches. Superstars!

The Village Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

It was just wonderful to see the school grounds filled with so many people enjoying the Village Jubilee Celebrations on Saturday. On behalf of the school, we would like to say a huge well done and thank you to the organisers for bringing everyone together – this includes our Chair of Governors, Keith Lister, and his wife Alyson. Alyson also continues to help keep our sensory garden which many people commented on as we all enjoyed the school grounds in the sunshine. We thank you both. In case you missed it, here is the School Hall and our children’s work in all its royal glory !
