Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


Welcome Year 6 to Willow Class. I hope you all had a lovely summer holiday. We will be starting this year with the topic of America. This term we will be journeying through the state of California, looking at key areas that make it such a big part of American culture such as; Hollywood, Santa Cruz, San Francisco and Yosemite National Park. In English, we will be learning to write our time slip narratives and acrostic poems.  In Design and Technology, we will be designing and creating our own working amusements rides to add to the world famous Santa Cruz Boardwalk. 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.


I look forward to our first term together.
