Happy Christmas

It has been a truly wonderful run up to the Christmas break. We have had many occasions to be together and celebrate. The children’s performances have made us all so proud. Huge thanks to all the adults who have helped to make this happen. We wish you all a very merry Christmas and happy new year- From everyone at Team Rownhams

Carols by Candlelight

Thank you to everyone who joined and contributed to our Carols by Candlelight service at St John’s Church On Wednesday. The children’s singing and reading was wonderful.

Year R - Bikeability

Oak class have been incredibly lucky to have taken part in ‘Bikeability’ with coaches from PBS this week. They’ve all had lots of mastering their balancing, gliding, steering and stopping skills. Ash class are looking forward to it being their turn in the New Year.

Year 1/2 - Nativity Performances

Year 1/2 have been busy performing this year’s Nativity, ‘Born in a Barn’, this week. It was such a joy to welcome parents and carers back into school to watch the performance after so many years of not being able to. The children wowed us all with their acting, singing and dancing and even got a standing ovation! What stars!

Year 3/4 Winchester Christmas Choir

Year 3/4 have been busy both inside and outside of the school building recently! Last Friday, some children took part in the Mountbatten Indoor Athletics events, representing the school brilliantly and demonstrating excellent sportsmanship and teamwork. At the same time, some children were busy singing at Winchester Christmas Market as part of the choir, again representing the school brilliantly.  We are so proud of all of the children!

In school, we have been busy reading the end of ‘The Firework-Maker’s Daughter’ and writing a non-chronological report on a made-up creature. We really enjoyed ‘The Barnabus Project’, our writing stimulus over the past couple of weeks.

Year 5/6 - The effect of voltage on electrical components

Year 5/6 have been setting up investigations to test how brightly a light bulb shines in a 1.5V, 3V, and 4.5V circuit. Keeping all variables -except voltage- the same, they used pieces of paper to cover the light bulb until they could no longer see the light shining through. We will be writing our conclusions from our results next week!

We brought our Street Child writing topic to an end with a newspaper report about Jim’s daring escape from the workhouse to try and find his sisters. We looked at using the 5 W’s to introduce our articles and using direct and indirect quotes to add in opinion.
