Ryarsh Primary School

Forward thinking for a brighter future

Our Favourite Learning


Bikeability—By Sam and Lydia S,

Orang-utan Class

During this week, we have been practising  a range of cycling skills to be safe on the road.  This included  improving our signalling to tell other road users that we are going to turn .  For an emergency stop, we practised using  our brakes.  We were encouraged to always look around whilst cycling and to look twice.  When we cycled on the road, we learnt about primary and secondary positions, how to perform  a u-turn and  the rules of the road (the Highway Code).  It was an exciting way to learn about cycling.

Welcome to Ryarsh Primary School.

As ever, it has been a very busy end of term. Thanks to our hardworking PTFA, children (and staff) enjoyed their disco last Friday. The earlier times seemed to work well so this will be repeated at our next disco in the spring term.

Also this week, children were shown some of the new books that we have just bought for the library with PTFA funds. This provides additional resources for all of our children to use and is much appreciated.

Congratulations to Orang-utan class who showed off some of this term’s learning in their class assembly on Wednesday. Children shared their diary entries based on studies of Anne Frank, a classic rock song and animations which they had created in their computing lessons.

Today Penguin class are on a day trip…. to Australia! Children had their tickets and passports ready and boarded the plane just after assembly. Hopefully they will be back in time for 3.15, with some tales to tell!

Reminder - INSET day after half term

I am sure that you already have this in your calendars, but the first day back after half term is an INSET day. Teachers will be learning about the new PE curriculum and moderating our assessment judgements in writing. Children return to school for the start of the new term on Tuesday 4th November.

I hope that you all enjoy a restful half term break and look forward to seeing everyone back for the start of Term 2.

Ryarsh is an outstanding school.’ Inspectors visited the school on 25th and 26th April 2012 and rated the school “outstanding” overall and also “outstanding” in every category. The inspection team praised the “high expectations that staff have of pupils’ achievement”, going on to say that “achievement is outstanding because of the rapid progress pupils make throughout the school” and that “skilled teaching assistants make a valuable contribution to the outstanding achievement of pupils.” They also said that “pupils’ behaviour, attitude to learning and conduct in lessons and around the school are exemplary” and that “a family atmosphere pervades the school.”
