Welcome back after the half term break. I hope you had a fabulous week off.
This half term, the title of our topic is 'How to catch a......' more will be revealed as we work through the half term. We returned to school today to a rather mysterious incident that happened over half term. Something or someone has been in the school grounds and has left a trail of evidence. We have spent some time investigating the area and taking photos of the evidence.
Mrs Morris and the Caretaker are keen to discover what has happened and who or what has left the trail of destruction.
All updates will be posted here....
As the children have discovered the intruder was a woolly mammoth, we have decided to research this particular animal in our topic which will lead us into the Stone age. As this rather large mammoth is still roaming around Rucstall, we are going to be writing a newsletter to ensure the local community is aware! Also, using our research we hopefully will be able to write some instructions about how we can catch this mammoth but we will need to find out all about it first!
We will keep you posted...
Welcome New MAPLE class 2017-2018. I hope you all enjoyed your summer holidays and I look forward to hearing about your ventures over the holiday.
Our first topic is UP WITH A BANG! This is all about Volcanoes and Earthquakes. The focus of this topic is to use our geographical skills to examine famous volcanoes and learn how they were made, how they work and lots of other interesting facts. We will be discovering what is, how does it and why do earthquakes happen.
In science we will be looking at forces and magnets and exploring the different types of forces including gravity, friction, air resistance and buoyancy.
Our PE days will be on Mondays and Wednesdays (with Mr Gazzard), please ensure your PE kit comes to school on Monday and remains in school for the week. You will need an indoor and out door PE kit. School colours are BLACK shorts/ jogging bottoms and a PLAIN WHITE Tshirt. School jumpers will be allowed for outdoor PE when it is cold.
