Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


Hello Fir Class!


I hope you had a lovely summer break and are looking forward to coming back to school. I am so excited to see you all again and I can't wait to begin our learning together; we have lots of exciting things coming up!


Jeffy has made a new friend and he is ready in his uniform to be part of Fir Class with you!


See you soon!

Jeffy has his dragon costume on!

We found some dragon eggs in Fir Class! There were some clues left behind from the dragon visit such as feathers, scales and dragon skin. The dragon has left its eggs behind so we are going to write a wanted poster to hopefully get it back. Here the children are building a house for the dragon and some children decided to write a sign to show the dragon where to go. 

We have been busy writing wanted posters to try and get our blue dragon back because she has left her egg behind! Here is a selection of amazing work from Fir Class!

In Mathematics we have been looking at number bonds to ten!

In English we have been reading the book Dragon Post. We had a go at using drama to act out what might have happened with the characters in the story. 

In Science, we made houses for the 3 Little Pigs out of different materials to see which had the best properties to make a strong house.

Today in Mathematics we were looking at using the addition symbol to combine 2 parts. 

Our outside learning this week!

Hello Fir Class,

I hope you enjoyed your half term break and that you are all well rested ready for another half term of learning and growing our brains!

Jeffy has his new outfit on for the term as we will be looking at fairytales in Writing! 
I can’t wait to see you all soon!

From Miss Kay 

In science we were learning about seasons so we went and explored Autumn outside in the leaves!

In Mathematics today we were looking at what it means to split something in half!

We went to Windsor Castle!

I am so proud of all the children on our trip yesterday! They were so well behaved and were a credit to the school. We had an amazing time watching the changing of the guards, exploring the chapel and walking around some of the rooms. We also learnt all about knights and some of the children got to dress up. 

Today in Mathematics we went on a shape hunt around the school! Can the children tell you what these different shapes are?

In Mathematics we have been comparing and ordering length so today we made Christmas trees. We made sure the pieces went from shortest to longest.

In Mathematics today we were measuring objects using cubes. Can you measure something at home using an item such as paper clips or pasta?

In Design and Technology we have been working really hard to make some puppets based around our dragon and fairytales work. The children have taken a lot of care to sew and decorate these puppets and were very proud of them!
