On Monday, Coach Neil returned to Dragonfly class to teach Reading the game. This week we practised our comprehension skills and read a text all about the history of Shrewsbury Town Football club. Whilst we were working hard, we had a special visit from Amber the clubs mascot, everyone was really excited to meet her! Finally, we practised our football skills learning ‘around the world’ and several other complicated skills.
Excellent work this week team Dragonflies!
It’s been an active week at Ruyton this week! Bikeability, Cross Country AND a Dodgeball Championship!
Firstly, a huge well done to our Year 6s who underwent Bikeability Training from Shropshire Council. This entailed two days of working with instructors to prove their ability to ride their bikes on the road safely including independent decision making around traffic in the village. We are proud that everyone who took part completed their Level 2 Bikeability!
Well done Year 6 🌟
Our KS2 Dodgeball Team then attended the Thomas Adams School in Wem for the North Shropshire Finals of the competition (following their success in Autumn Term).
Incredibly, our team – consisting of Year 4,5 and 6 players – got through to the semi-finals before narrowly losing out!
A massive well done to all the players involved – it is a super achievement for our small school and you represented us fantastically well.
Cross Country @ Corbet
All children in KS2 (Year 3, 4,5, 6) participated in a cross-country event at the Corbet School on Wednesday. Everyone completed the course – many for the first time- and showed super determination to achieve their best. Well done Team Ruyton!

In other news…
Mrs Beddoes modelled these new hi-viz coats which have been kindly donated by Stop n Go. The jackets will be worn by our Bumblebees children so they are more visible to everyone at playtimes. We think they look great!
Rabbit and Hedgehog Class had a fantastic day at ‘The British Ironworks Centre’. We explored the variety of trails there are and enjoyed looking at the sculptures and thinking about how they were made and what they were made from. We were all very interested in the ‘Extinction Trail’ and learning about how and why animals become extinct. The children were fantastic representatives for the school and impressed the adults on the trip with their knowledge of animal diets and locating where the animals lived!
In Science we are learning about materials. Year Ones have been naming materials and describing some of their properties. Year Twos have been looking at materials and their uses, they thought about how the materials properties link to their uses. There were lots of brilliant scientific conversations going on – great work Rabbits!
