Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


Welcome Year 6 to Willow Class. I hope you all had a lovely half term. This term will will be looking towards Central America and focusing on the Marvellous Mayans. We will be journeying through the ancient Mayan empire, building sculptures, eating traditonal food and learning about their most popular creation- chocolate! In English, we will writing mystery narratives and autobiographies on a famous jungle explorer.  In Design and Technology and Geography, we will be following the journey of a cocoa bean and hopefully try making our own chocolate. Our PE days will be Mondays and Wednesday, so please make sure full kit is in school on a Monday and left for the week. Please consider the colder weather and pack a warm tracksuit or black leggings.

Today we were working with Year 1 and performing our plays. We made the props, directed the actors and narrated each scene using our scripts that we made.

This week we had a visitor come in and teach us about skeletons and why they are important in keeping our body strong and moving.  He showed us his skeleton called Steve and we learnt about all his different bones.
