Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


Hello Willow Class and parents/carers!


Welcome back to the new term.  I hope that the children have had a lovely Christmas and are ready for the busy year ahead.  We will be working hard this term to ensure that they have the skills and knowledge required to be successful in Year 6. This is a very busy, yet exciting year, as we work hard to ensure the children are well-prepared for secondary school. 


We very much look forward to working with you all this year.

Design and Technology Day - Maya Shelters 

On Friday 10th December, Willow class had their DT day where they were able to design and create a scale model of a typical Maya shelter.  They thought carefully about the purpose of the structure, what design they wanted to make and how to make their structure stronger by considering any reinforcements that might be needed.  Their finished products will take pride of place in our DT cabinet to showcase their skills to the rest of the school.  Willow Class should be exceptionally proud of their achievements today.

January 2022 - English Writing 

Willow Class produced some fantastic non-chronological reports, some of which we sent to Sir David Attenborough to have a look at - we are hoping that we will get a response! The children, and myself, are very proud of what they have produced and each child took home a copy of their work to share with you.
