Ruswarp Church of England Primary School Think for Yourself and Act for Others

Autumn 2019

It's Christmas! (20th December)   The surprise arrival of letters from our pen pals in Kleve was a lovely way to end the term.

Grand Designs (18th December)   There was teamwork aplenty today as work continued on our Blitzed Street designs...

Multiplicity (18th December)   Numeracy work with multiplication has been pushing into some tricky areas... The result of one of Daisy's calculations today was a mere 39352599992666. Now here's the big question: what is this number?

Democracy In Action! (12th December)

Policies, speeches, rosettes and staged photo opportunities can only mean one thing: election time! It was a hard fought contest too, with a range of parties seeking election: The Sea Party, The Charity Party, The Coastal Party, Animal Party, Save The World Party and The Wildlife Party all stood up and expressed their views on important subjects as diverse as hospitals, littering, homelessness and child protection. However, when the election was over, it was The Blue Party (named after the oceans they wished to protect) with their firm focus on children and climate who had won the majority vote...   

Shocking! (11th December)   Which materials will conduct electricity? This afternoon we decided to find out... 

Infamy! Infamy! (11th December)   It's not every day that a Roman soldier pops into Collective Worship. The reason for today's out-of-time visit? To publicise this weekend's Christmas event at Eskdale School!
