Please see below our online blog of what extiting thing each class has been getting up to each month:


Class 1 started their first child choice topic ‘superheroes’ this month. During this topic, the children got to build their own superhero headquarters! They have also learn all about bonfire night and Diwali. Whilst learning about Diwali, the children made diva pots out of clay and acted out the story of Rama and Sita. Class 2 have showcased their maths skills through the whole school maths workshop for parents and carers – they were very impressed! Class 3 and Class 4 have rein acted the mummification process as part of their history lessons – they had a brilliant time! Class 5 have been on several trips this month. They went to Burton Brewery as part of their history topic. They also went to The National Arboretum to celebrate the centenary ending of the First World War. Year 5 have been really lucky as they got to visit Stoke City football club. The Christmas Fayre also took place this month. It went really well and everyone really enjoyed themselves. We are looking forward to the rest of the upcoming Christmas activities.


We have been very busy throughout October. In Class 1, Mrs Nilsen showed off her baking skills by making and decorating monster biscuits with the children. They also explored the changing season by completing creative activities using natural materials. Class 2 have been making pizzas as part of their maths work about fractions. They also made angel delight as part of their English topic ‘writing instructions’. Class 3 and Class 4 took a walk to the local river. Whilst there, they created landscape pictures using oil pastels. Class 5 have taken part in several sporting activities this month. Some of the children attended a football tournament at Pirelli Stadium 3G Pitches. There was a tri-federation football tournament and a girl’s football tournament at Marston’s. All of the children that took part did amazing! Everyone has a wonderful half term and now we are ready for the upcoming Christmas term.


September has been an exciting month for everyone at Richard Crosse. All of the children have settled back into school and have taken part in various activities. Class 1 welcomed all of their new Nursery and Reception children. They took part in their ‘settling in’ and ‘all about me’ topics. They have also had a senses week, which they found very exciting, especially the blind tasting activity! Reception children attended their first church service – Harvest Festival. The children in Class 2 have been busy making their own dragons. They then acted out a Chinese dragon parade around the school. Class 3 and Class 4 have had Stoke City football players come into school to teach them PE – the children loved it! Finally, Class 5 went on a residential trip to Kingswood at Dearne Valley. They took part in lots of different activities and a wonderful time was had by all!
