Welcome to Year 5 - Rowan Class! We hope that the children have had a restful summer and are ready to learn.
Year 5 is a big step up and provides children with new and exciting learning opportunities. I am confident they will rise to the challenge and continue building on previous learning as we progress throughout the year.
We understand the importance of working alongside everyone at home in order to support children throughout their journey at Rucstall Primary School. We would like to welcome you to our Parent’s Information Meeting in the hall after school on Thursday 15th September, where we will share all you need to know about what to expect in Year 5. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
We look forward to the busy and exciting first half-term.
Miss Scott and Ms Tibble
What a busy half term of learning we have had! From making pizzas in our design and technology unit to making fossils in science, we have covered a lot of key knowledge in the curriculum. We have demonstrated an enjoyment for reading with lots of us achieving our 25 reads certificate and have also made progress with our times tables recall.
I hope you all have a restful break and come back ready to continue our learning journey in Year 5.

What a productive term and a brilliant start to the academic year we have had, year 5. From writing a non-chronological report on astronaut training to writing a letter of complaint to the Home Office, we have used an increasing range of grammar features and writing techniques. I have been so impressed by your perseverance and creativity. I am also so pleased to see lots of us taking care over our presentation and achieving our pen licenses.
We have been learning lots of skills throughout the wider curriculum and can now make pizza and sew our own cushions - some of us can even do it better than Miss Scott! We have also been learning how to give directions around the school in French and it is lovely to see children using this knowledge in games on the playground. We certainly are a talented, hard-working class. I am looking forward to continuing our learning journey after Christmas.
Have a lovely, festive break and come back ready to focus on Spring term.
Merry Christmas 🎄
