"Songs Of Praise" (22nd September)

Assembly saw the unveiling of our new school hymn books, with one of the rather splendid covers designed by Roxy!

Later, the hall was filled with still more interesting sounds as, with Music Master Mr Firth, we experimented with brass instruments... 

This, coupled with some spacecraft designs, thoughts about "Our Wonderful World" and interesting artefacts courtesy of Angus and Lottie, brought a busy week to a close!  Don't forget that you will need your PE kit on Monday. Have a great weekend! 

The Appliance Of Science (21st September)

Taking cover was a good idea this afternoon as an experiment with vibration meant showers for all!

IN THE FUTURE (21st September)

Don't forget that you will need your PE kit in school on Monday.

The Creation Investigation (15th September) 

Ending the week on a bright note... Not only did we discover that lollipop personnel are getting younger, today we welcomed back music master Mr Firth, penned some detailed WWII accounts and compiled the findings from our Creation investigation!

Take a letter... (11th September)

The Ruswarp School postman has been alarmingly busy since a whole host of correspondence has been arriving over the past few weeks thanks to our Heroes project (not sure what we mean? Look back through last year's webpage for details!). As well as Blue Peter badges, there have also been letters from the office of the Queen and the Prime Minister, plus a rather special letter from a Battle Of Britain veteran, Squadron Leader Geoffrey Wellum!
