Welcome to Team Rownhams

We would very much like to welcome our new Year R children and their families to our community - and our team. The children have settled beautifully into the classes and today they have been enjoying the sunshine. You can read more about their adventures this week as well as all the other exciting activities from our first week or two in our blog. We are pleased to also welcome Hampshire Music Service who will be supporting our music teaching from Year 1 to Year 6 across the year. We hope to promote our love for music with improved lessons and a whole new range of instruments.

Year R - Welcome to Rownhams

Year R have had a very busy week.  We have been getting to know the adults that look after us learning our new routines and have made lots of new friends.  We have loved starting our Read Write Inc phonics lessons and singing number rhymes.

Year 1/2 - Mastering Number Formation

This week Yr ½ have been practising their number formation in as many ways as possible! They have used chalk, paints, cars and everything they can to show their numbers to 10 and 20. It has been very fun to enjoy maths in the sunshine.

Year 3/4 - Voices in the Park

What an action packed start to the term year we’ve all had.  We went straight into our learning with our new books ‘Voices in the Park’ by Anthoney Browne and ‘Tell Me a Dragon’ by Jackie Morris.  Both stories are firing up our imaginations and inspiring our love language.  In maths, everyone has been working on  place value – focusing on thousands, hundreds, tens and ones.   In the afternoons, children were designing and composing self portraits based on the work of the famous Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.  The children used natural media to create the background to their own ‘half self portrait’.  We hope you enjoy looking at some of the examples.

Year 5/6 - Ancient Egyptians

This week we have been discovering facts about the past. In both reading and history we have been looking at the ancient Egyptians, the life and death of Tutankhamun and the discovery of his tomb by Howard Carter. The children had to decide what they thought some of the most important and influential finds within the tomb were.
