Ruby Class - Year 1

Welcome to Ruby Class!

 

Your teacher is Mrs Cole and your Teaching Assistant is Miss Price.  

 

What is happening in Ruby Class this term?

Over the next few weeks we will be having lots of fun! We have some wonderful activities planned just for you! They will help you get used to being back in school and give you the opportunity to know more about your teachers and friends! Our very first topic is 'Home Sweet Home'. Do you know what houses are made from? Do you know how to build a castle? Lets find out!
