Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


A big welcome back to you all. We are looking forward to a great year in Year 3 and continuing to build on lots of your Key Stage 1 knowledge.


Year 3 sees new challenges, a new subject (French!) and lots of exciting and engaging opportunities to showcase your skills and knowledge across the whole curriculum. 


Please find regular updates on our class pages as well as the newsletter.


We look forward to a fantastic first half term.

Today, Lime class had their first gymnastics lesson of the half term. They remembered lots of different balances and shapes from previous learning and also tried lots of new ones!


Below are the photos taken as the children rotated around the different mats with various balances and shapes on each mat. 


The children will continue to build on these and build them up into a routine later in the half term. 

Update - 12th September

Today, Lime class had their school visit to Butser Ancient Farm, linked to our History unit of work around Stone Age to Iron Age. Joe, our guide for the day, was fantastic and very knowledgeable, asking the children lots of questions and providing lots of facts.


We got to look inside several different types of houses, discuss how they were made and the materials available. The children participated in pottery making, chalk carving and an archaeological dig to find artefacts.


I hope the children have come home talking about the visit and were enthused and excited. We will continue to build on this lesson throughout our History lessons this term.


Thank you to everyone involved in supporting the trip. 

Update: 29th September


Today the children in Years 3, 4 and 5 had the opportunity to attend a scooter and skateboard workshop. Alex, a skateboard teacher, taught the children about being safe on scooters and skateboards, wearing the correct safety equipment and how to correctly hold and balance on both.

The children absolutely loved riding and learning tricks on the scooters and skateboards.


Below are some pictures from Year 3's session this morning.


It was lovely to see all the children engaged and everybody tried everything!
