“For I know the plans I have for you…plans to give you hope and a future.”  Jeremiah 29:11

Inspire, Enjoy, Achieve


This half-term, our focus text is 'Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish' by Michael Foreman.  You will find attached an outline of what we plan to cover this half term, but we may have to alter it depending on the children's interests.

Welcome back - Autumn 2 curriculum overview.


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.

Behavioural Expectations


For your information, I now attach an outline of the behaviour expected of our children as they move through Reception class and on into Key stage 1.  This should be read in conjunction with the school's behaviour policy.  


As the children progress through Willow class, they will be supported and guided towards meeting the level of behaviour expected.  This is a gradual and ongoing process.  Please speak to Mrs Curry if you have any questions.
