Our Wonderful kids

To all our wonderful kids

Hope you are all getting on well and helping to mind each other at home.

Its every strange time at the moment and you might have some worries but the most important thing you can do at the moment is stay calm, stay positive and keep your mind and body healthy. Remember to do activities that make your mind and body feel all those lovely positive emotions like happiness, pride, love,kindness, friendship , excitement and achievement ( for example exercise, reading a book, drawing and creating, playing games, helping out at home and having a chat with someone you care about.

It’s so important to take care of yourself and your family at this time. You are all such wonderful kids and you make Rutland such a fabulous school I can only imagine how helpful and kind you are all being at home .

We are thinking of you all and your families

Our trip with the Parents to Botanics ‘Sculpture in context’


Every September the Botanical gardens become an enchanting place with sculptural treasures . This year second class and their parents went on the bus to the Botanic gardens. We used out maps to find all the sculptures


We found some very interesting art works. We also looked at the trees and learnt all about Autumn and all the changes to the trees.


We explored different sculptures and spoke about all the different features.

We loved that the parents joined us and that the sun shone all morning!

International Women’s Day

What an incredible event Miss Baileys Class held today for International Womens Day. All the children researched and wrote about different famous women in history. The children also created dinner plates and re created the famous ‘Dinner Party installation art work by feminist artist Judy Chicago. The parents were invited to attend and the children spoke and answered questions about their famous  women. What a celebration!
