Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


UPDATE: Hazel Class had some visitors over night; three of our characters from our new English book Tidy came to answer some of our questions.

UPDATE: I think you will agree that the children (& adults) have made a fantastic effort for World Book Day!

UPDATE: Yesterday, Wednesday 28th February, the class took part in the Spring 'Well Being Wednesday'. See what we got up too!

UPDATE: Check out our finished D&T projects, Teddy Bears. The children worked incredibly hard and completely independently to create their products.

UPDATE: Yesterday, Thursday 8th February, Year 2 had a D&T day where we began making our Teddy Bears. The children independently draw out their template, cut it out and threaded their own needles. Look back after half term for the finished product!

UPDATE: This morning in Writing Year 2 began their unit on instructions, they were giving Mrs Earl instructions on how to make a jam sandwich. Were they successful?

UPDATE: This week we made a start on rehearsing our running stitch ahead of making our teddy bears, at the end of this half term.


We hope you had a great Christmas break. We look forward to continuing with lots of learning in Spring term. 


Please ensure NUMBOTS, Spelling Shed and reading home learning is completed weekly. NUMBOTS and Spelling Shed will be checked at 8am on a Wednesday morning and  reading records will continue to be checked weekly on Friday too.

UPDATE: Today, Tuesday 14th November, Hazel class became Geographers and carried out fieldwork across the school. To prepare, they made predictions on which areas around the school were going to be hot and which were cold, and why. They had maps of the school that they annotated as we went about our fieldwork. Mrs Murphy, Geography lead, joined us to see out fieldwork in action! 

UPDATE: Today we were lucky enough to have the Fire Service in to talk to us about fire safety and what to do in an emergency. Check out our photos below. 

UPDATE: Today was the day that we burned the beautiful houses you lovingly made at home. The children were so incredibly mature about it and enjoyed seeing the real affects of the Great Fire of London. When we returned inside, we drew upon how we felt when they were burning and the children create a word wall to support our writing unit. 

UPDATE: Take a peek at some of the activities we got up to on well-being Wednesday. 

UPDATE: Today we enjoyed gathering around the fire pit to experience what may have been experienced in the 1666 when the Great Fire of London happened! The children were able to come up with lots of ideas to support their senses! 

UPDATE: We had a visitor from the Great Fire of London today, to tell us all about what happened. They gave us lots of valuable information to put into our witness reports! Thank you Hanna!

UPDATE: Check out the gallery section of the website, to see some pictures from our Windsor Castle trip. 

Year 2 had the opportunity to look at a box of artefacts from Farnham Museum


What a fantastic first week back: I am incredibly pleased with the presentation of the childrens' learning, they have clearly been working hard on their handwriting. I wonder who will be the first to get a pen? 


A big thank you to those who attended the Information Meeting on Friday, despite the heat. Please see a PDF version below for those who couldn't make it. 


Mrs Earl

Welcome to Hazel Class

Hello and a warm welcome to Hazel Class. We hope that you have all had a fun and restful summer and we are looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Please look at our class page regularly for updates, photos and to find out what we are learning!


Please look at your child's reading record to get started on their home learning and begin their Year 2 reading journey: remember, they should be reading wherever possible. I wonder who will be the first to get their 25 reads?


We look forward to an exciting year ahead!
