All details concerning learning this year will appear here on this page.
Please keep looking as more information is made available particularly spelling lists and project homework that will be linked this term to our whole school theme, 'Whodunnit!?' We are very excited about our Whodunnit!? topic in Maple class, with lots of chat about detectives, mystery and Cluedo!
English will be focused around mystery, linking to our termly topic. We have begun the term with a mystery narrative which included a very exciting hunt for our class beads, stolen by persons unknown! Throughout the term we will be looking at riddle poetry, crime reports and, nearer Easter, an Easter story narrative.
In Science we will be moving on to states of matter, looking at states of matter and conducting some experiments to identify characteristics of solids and liquids. After half term we will be focusing on sound, the way it is made and how it travels.
RE will be focusing on salvation, and what Christianity teaches us about sacrifice. This will be mainly structured around the Easter story, which the children will be discussing and writing about in the second half of the term.
In PE we have begun with Gymnastics, with many of the children also becoming involved in myself and Mr Gibb's netball club. We have some very accomplished gymnasts in Maple class! After half term, we will (hopefully) be getting outside to do some tennis!
Just as a quick reminder of PE kit, the children will need;
Thank you for the bottle tops and plastic bottles you have given us over the last half term, we are still collecting and are aiming to do a project with them before Easter!
If you have any queries or questions please pop into Maple Class at the end of the day!
To develop a lifelong love of learning and valuable life skills, we aim to support every child to develop a positive learning and life approach. As part of this, you will increasingly become aware of the characteristics of PRIME.
Nelson (our school mascot) accompanies and illustrates each strand of this.
I attach a 'poster' to identify each of the characteristics of PRIME which we will be aiming to develop in every child during their time at Ruishton school. Please see below.
