Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


Welcome back! 


Welcome to Year 5 - Rowan Class! We hope that the children have had a restful and enjoyable 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 14th 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!

Our DT unit began with a trip to Pizza Express! We learned how to make a Margherita Pizza before making our own- yum!

Wellbeing Wednesday! We had a lovely afternoon talking about ourselves, our strengths, the things that we enjoy and winding down with some mindfulness colouring.

DT- Pizza Making


Last half term, we followed up our trip to Pizza Express with making our own Pizzas! We challenged ourselves, to see if we could make a pizza that was even better than the ones from Pizza Express. We carefully designed our pizzas before completing the exciting task of making them. 


Today, we received a visit from Hampshire Fire Service and took part in a workshop all about fire safety and the role of the Fire Service. Look out for the booklets your children will be bringing home and quiz them on their fire safety knowledge!

Science 20.02.24

This term we have been looking at materials and how new substances are made. 

Today, we were investigating reversible and irreversible changes. The class were challenged to turn a piece of toast back into bread.

Sadly, they were unsuccessful and discovered that this is an irreversible change, but they did have lots of fun in the process!
