P6/7 visited NICC on Tuesday 19 September 2017 to take part in an Institute of Civil Engineers' 'Bridges to Schools' activity which gave them the chance to build a 13m long cable stayed bridge.

The Great Ruthvenfield World Book Day Bake Off 2017 (36 images)

On World Book Day we had the first Great Ruthvenfield World Book Day Cake Show. Pupils entered the competition by creating a World Book Day themed cupcake (at home) and bringing it in for our judges Miss Mary Berry MacKenzie and Mr Paul Hollywood Clark to deliberate on. There were over 25 entries and all the judging was carried out without the judges knowing who had baked which cake. The initial entries were whittled down to 10 finalists based on how well the cupcake decoration fitted a book theme. The 10 finalists were then judged on taste as well as appearance, resulting in a April and Jamie C coming 3rd, Morgan in 2nd place and Jordan in 1st place. Below are pictures of all the entries.
