Baltonsborough CE VC Primary School

Welcome to Russet Class

A very Happy New Year to you all and welcome to the Spring Term!


This term we will be discovering why some creatures prefer to live under the sea. This will involve using maps to identify seas, oceans, continents and countries and exploring different habitats and the animals that live in them. We will also be using instruments to create sounds that reflect the sea. At the end of term, we hope to entertain you with our mini musical. ‘Stella the starfish’.

It’s going to be a very busy and exciting term!


How can you help your child at home?

*Read regularly with your child, discuss a range of books and practise high frequency words/common exception words

*Help them to learn their spellings. Practise writing them in different ways using colours/paint/chalks etc

*Carry out independent research on our topic to help encourage and enthuse your child. 

If you have any questions, please come and see us. We look forward to teaching your children and working alongside you this year,


Mrs Rees and Mr Sansam

Visit to Bruton School for Girls

On Monday, 27th November we visited Bruton School for Girls. They gave us a wonderful day full of fun and music. It included African drumming, drama, pipe playing and making our own instruments. Plus they provided a yummy lunch. A great day was had by all. Thank you to Bruton School for Girls for giving us this wonderful treat.
