Celebration Time

It was fantastic seeing everyone together in our first Virtual Celebration Assembly this week. Seeing everyone in ‘one-space’ even though it was online was very special, especially being able to hear about all the different things that are going on around the school. It was a refreshing change when we have all been restricted to our little bubbles or at home away from our friends. Our teachers have been busy this week putting the finishing touches to end of year reports and class lists ready for release next week!

Fun in the Sun

It’s been a very warm week in school so we have tried to make the most of the sunshine but occasionally hid inside as it has been too hot at times! Year R have continued with their bug exploring and even had a letter from the fairies. Year 1 have been keeping cool, whilst learning about capacity with water buckets, jugs and balancing scales. Year 6 have started to think about their ‘socially-distanced’ production and taken part in some transition sessions for their move to ‘big’ school – exciting times! Our Key Workers have been researching countries around the world and creating collages whilst our Home Learners have been busy, too, with tie-dying and a whole host of creative and fun activities.

This week we reopened our school to our Year R, Year 1 and Year 6 children. It is fair to say that our whole community was anxious about the restart but I am happy to report that the week has been successful – the feedback has been very positive and the children have been absolutely brilliant! Thank you to the whole community for responding so well to our plans and making our school a safe and welcoming place to be.

Rownhams Do Live Bake Along!

We promised some changes to our online provision and Mr Warner did this in style with his live Bake Along. The children were able to improve their measuring skills, understanding of gluten and kneading skills through the means of ‘Google Meet’. They were enthralled by his natural baking skills and now we can’t wait for the next one!
