Our topic in Ruby Class for the Autumn Term is World War One. The war lasted from 1914 — 1918, and was known as the Great War.
The children started this topic by visiting the Military Museum in Chester, where they were able to examine artefacts from that era and experience a workshop in a World War One trench. A curator from the Grosvenor Museum led an art workshop where they studied the sketches of William Hutchings, which they subsequently replicated in class. This excursion also included a visit to Chester Cathedral where volunteers guided the children around a range of World War One Memorials.
Ruby Class enjoyed a workshop, led by Joanne and Louise from Cheshire East Reflects, where they had the opportunity to handle a variety of artefacts from the Imperial War Museum in Salford, including an original Princess Mary Christmas Gift Box and a replica Training Rifle.

In Science the children have been looking at Forces with Mrs Standley.
Homework will be set for the children on a Friday and I am asking the children to retun it on or before the following Wednesday. Homework will usually consist of an English and Maths piece. In addition to this, children will be expected to practise key spellings and consolidate times tables knowledge. Reading is a vital part of children's education. All children will have guided sessions in school. If you could try to hear your child read as often as possible and make a note of this in the Home/School Diary, then this would be much appreciated and of great benefit to your child.
Our main PE day this term is Friday but if children could have PE kits in school every day then that would be helpful. Children will need a t shirt and shorts for indoor PE and a warm tracksuit or jogging bottoms and jumper with trainers for outdoor PE as we will continue to do outdoor PE in the cold weather.
