Hello Marvellous Maples


I hope you are all well? What a miserable week of weather we have had this week! Well done to those who took part in the Bench design, the entries I saw were fantastic. I think the judges will find it hard to choose!

I hope the weather brightens up for next week so we can enjoy some outdoor time again!

Next week's work has been uploaded now for you to have a go, keep up with your reading and timestables- they are the most important!

Take care and stay safe Maples.

Hope to see you soon

Hello Maples,

I hope you are all well? What miserable rainy weather we have been having- I do hope the sun comes back out soon, I have lots of flowers I need to plant in my garden!

Poppy is not liking this wet weather either, she shakes the water all over me when she comes back from her walk with her daddy! Naughty Poppy! I am sure she thinks its funny!


Have you seen the new online sharing platform? I have been keeping an eye out to check if any Maples have been uploading their fabulous work! You can create your own profile character too! Check mine out- Poppy is with me!


Don't forget Monday is the deadline for the AWE science bug house competition - I have added the reminder posters below with next week's work! If you join in , please take a photo and upload to the online sharing platform so we can all see, I would love to build one too! 


Take care and stay safe

Hope to see you all soon!

There will be a mathematics, English and science competition running. You can try as many of them as you like, it is up to you! But please remember to spend some time with your family and enjoy this lovely weather we are having.

All the information for the competitions are below.

Happy Half Term Maple class.

WELL DONE MAPLES- You are the top spellers in the school!!

Also extra fabulous well done to the three Maple top spellers you are in 2nd, 3rd and 4th place- Amazing work! - I'm so proud of you all!


Hello Marvellous Maples

I hope you are all well? It seems such a long time ago that I saw you all- I am missing you all and can not wait to see you.

I have uploaded next week's work for you but please remember that you need to take time off for yourselves as well as working. I know you are all working hard as I know just how conscientious and hardworking you all are but, it is important to have some rest time, read a book for pleasure, play in the garden in the sunshine, maybe a walk with your parents or maybe a bike ride. Your well-being is as important as school work!

Please take care of yourselves and your family.

I do hope to see you all soon. Don't forget to watch the videos the teachers have been uploading and our brand new quizzes. See how many points you can win!


If you are interested in dinosaurs and want to trial a new times tables game there is a link for a new game I have found. Let me know what you think about it!


Take care and i'll see you soon!

Hello Maples,


I hope you are all well? Are you enjoying the sunshine? I wonder how many of you have been on bike rides? I can't wait to talk to you all and find out what you have been up to!

Did you celebrate VE day at home, maybe a tea party with your family? I had tea and biscuits in the garden with my husband and my pooch Poppy - although Poppy did eat most of my biscuits!

I hope you are all keeping safe and looking forward to seeing you soon, Don't forget -head over to the children' page and look out for some videos that have been uploaded recently!

Also, Miss Kay has set a music competition - I bet I know which Maple musicians will have a go at that! - Good luck everyone.

Easter Holidays

Given that next week is the start of the Easter holidays, we will only be posting material for one of those weeks. This is to enable you some continued structure, should you desire this, but to also allow all families time to spend together during what would usually be a time without any school work.

Happy Easter from all the Rucstall Primary School Team! 



Hello Maple Class,

I do hope you are enjoying this sunshine and staying safe. I bet you are looking forward to the weekend? I know I am!

I am hoping the weather stays nice so I can go into the garden this weekend with Poppy. I may even clean my car! 

What ever you are doing, stay safe, have fun and enjoy being with your family!

Take care my lovely Maples!


Mrs Fuller and Poppy
