Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


Welcome Year 1 to Fir Class. I hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday. Our first topic this year will be Traditional Tales. Throughout the term we will be reading a multitude of story classics such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood as well as some of their more modern versions such as Jack and the Jelly Beanstalk and Little Red Reading Hood. In English we will be learning to write our own fairy tales, too.

In Design and Technology we will be designing and creating our own houses, based on the classic; The Three Little Pigs.

Our PE days will be Mondays and Wednesday, so please make sure full kit is in school on a Monday and left for the week. Please consider the colder weather and pack a warm tracksuit or black leggings.

Children have now been sent home with new Reading Records. I will check these every Friday and change their books twice weekly on a Monday and Friday. 


I look forward to our first term together.
