We share our latest news and annoucements here…
We’ve had a fabulously busy week here at Rownhams. On Wednesday we held our annual Biathlon and on Thursday, of course, it was World Book Day! It was wonderful to see so many bikes in school and the children enjoying being active and outside despite the rain! The costumes—as you can see below—were amazing and really helped us to celebrate the wonderful world of books! Next week, we will open up our Book Fair, which will raise much needed funds to help us buy more new books for our library and classrooms—so your investment will support a good cause!
This week we celebrated our School Value of ‘Love’. All the children took part in a range of activities that demonstrated our core value and to remind us why ‘Love’ is so important to our school. We have also had a number of project launches this week, including the visit of the Space Dome for Year 1/2 that doubled as a Dinosaur Dome for Year R in the morning.
It’s been a busy week at Rownhams as we draw this half term to a close. We have had two outcomes and a great presentation from our Young Carers. It’s better to hear straight from our children so in today’s blog you can read our reports from our News Team and two match reports from our footballers.
Mrs Broyd, our Child and Family Support Worker, has been working closely with Romsey Young Carers so that we can better support children who have a role in caring for someone at home. We have also been closely supported by Ben Hogbin, one of our parent governors, who works for Winchester Young Carers. So, what is a Young Carer? Also, in this blog, read about our Young Governors idea for ‘one-minute book reviews’ and how you could write your own… and finally, the long awaited photos from Year 5/6’s trip to the Harry Potter studios!
Do you know what you’re children are doing online? The internet is a great place to learn and have fun but we also need to know how to stay safe. Safer Internet Day is being celebrated on 11th February and we are running parent workshops to coincide with this. In other news this week, Year 1/2 are hoping to adopt a Koala, we have a reminder about the great work of our PTA and an outline of latest school improvement priorities.
We have lots to report this week, including our newly updated Vision statement, where you can find your child’s curriculum information, our revived link with a school in Muramba Valley and how you can have your say in our new Relationships and Sex Education Policy.
This term our priority in school is to review, explore and further develop our approach to reading, especially our approach to ‘reading for pleasure’. In this article I will share some of our plans, the ideas from our Young Governors and some helpful tips for reading at home.
