A Fantastic Field Trip

This week's blog in four words: Beans, RE, Art-Deco, and Romsey! In this week's blog, Team 5/6 recount their Geography adventure, where they walked around Romsey in order to learn more about land use change, and to find out why people come to visit the town today. Thank you to everyone who made it possible to go on this trip, especially our parent helpers who came with Team 5/6! Also in the blog, Team 3/4 have been exploring the Art Deco style in their Art lessons, whilst the story of Jack and the Beanstalk has inspired Year R to grow their own beans. Team 1/2 were also busy this week as they had their RE Day on Tuesday! You can find out more about the children’s learning across the school on the blog, and our social media pages (Instagram and Facebook).

Year R: Jack and the Beanstalk

In Year R, we explored “Jack and the Beanstalk,” a tale of bravery and magic. This week we have been busy sowing the seeds and learning how to look after our seeds. With care and determination, our budding gardeners have been growing their seeds, fostering a connection to nature and the wonders it holds. Through storytelling and play, we learned about courage and the wonders of nature.

Team 1 / 2: RE Day

This week Yr ½ had the pleasure of welcoming Southampton City Mission to Rownhams. Southampton City Mission told us stories of The Good News, Jesus coming to earth, the parable of the lost son and the unforgiving servant. We got to create lots of craft which was very exciting! This included making pearls and mini before and after booklets of the stories. We had the best time with Southampton City Mission and we can’t wait for them to come back again!

Team 3 / 4: Art Deco Designs

Team 3/4 have been inspired by the art deco period of art from the 1920s.  The children drew images of either people, objects or patterns using art pencils.  When this was done, they drew lines across the page to create geometric shapes as was the method in this style.  The children then used pastels with bright colours to bring the pieces to life in an abstract way.

Team 5 / 6: A Sea of Green in Romsey

Romsey may be known for the fast flowing River Test but this week, visitors to Romsey may have met with a sea of green jumpers – as Team 5/6 explored the whole town on foot, armed with iPads, maps and trusty clipboards! As geographers, the children were investigating how land-use has changed in Romsey over the last 100 years and why people visit the town today. The children were excited to discover many places to visit and the highlight of their day was completing a questionnaire, whereby many people kindly stopped to talk with the children. A big thank you to all who made it possible to go on this trip, especially the parent helpers who came with us on our epic walking adventure!
