Fairthorne residential

It has been a very busy half term, here, for Team Rownhams. We have had SATs for Year 2 and Year 6, a residential trip to Fairthorne and our friends at Ofsted paid a visit! The fun and learning hasn’t stopped and this week, in the blog, check out the photos from Fairthorne, our trip to see an opera, Year 1/2 have been gardening and Year R have been making fruit kebabs.

Year R - Fruit Kebabs

Year R have been busy designing and making fruit kebabs this week using the fruit that Handa tries to take to her friend Akeyo in our core book ‘Handa’s Surprise’. The children showed off their brilliant DT skills by planning which fruit they were going to use carefully cutting up their choices with brilliant control. They were all excited to try so many new foods! Thank you for your donations of fruit which enabled us to offer this brilliant experience.

Year 1/2 - Learning Outside

The children have been taking advantage of the lovely sunny weather and our school grounds this week.

They have enjoyed using our outside area for maths where they looked at making repeating patterns out of natural materials and finding different shapes. They have been identifying the different trees that we have on our school grounds and have enjoyed using the storytelling circle. The children also found their favourite stick and then picked different natural materials to represent their outside learning experiences.

Year 3/4 - A visit to the Mayflower Theatre

Last week, Year 3/4 children from Choir and Musical Theatre had the amazing opportunity to visit the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton for a special performance by the Welsh National Opera. The children (and adults!) were enthralled by the music played by the orchestra – pieces included The Imperial March, Hedwig’s Theme and our favourite, We Don’t Talk About Bruno, as well as pieces from the opera, ‘The Magic Flute’. We had a brilliant time! A big thank you to those parents who drove the children to the theatre.

Year 5/6 - Fairthorne Manor

The Year 5/6 children had an amazing time on their residential trip to Fairthorne Manor! They learnt new skills and tried new activities, such as archery, abseiling, fire-lighting, kayaking, raft-building and den-building. The children demonstrated team-work and perseverance and became more confident. Some children were especially proud of themselves when they overcame their worries about heights and water. All the children were really involved in the campfire songs and sung and danced the night away at the disco.
