Welcome to all of our children and families who will be joining us in September 2020. Unfortunately, this year we have been unable to offer the same transition as we would do normally because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. So, we have created this page to share the key information you need for your child’s first day at school.
We share our latest news and annoucements here…
It has been a very different Summer Term but we are truly grateful for the support from our whole community. Now, it’s time to say goodbye to our Year 6 children and to start to welcome our new Year R children in September – exciting times for all. We also look forward to welcoming back our Year 2, 3, 4 and 5 children who we have all missed so much!
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!
We have been busy at Rownhams this week with lots of fun learning, a ‘bubble’ closure and we have some staff changes to update you with. Our PTA have also been busy raising money for the school – they held a Treasure Hunt, which was a great success. Our Year 6 children been busy getting ready for their production of the Lion King – as seen in the featured image this week and there is some information on transition for our pupils heading to Romsey School.
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.
It’s been another fun week at Rownhams and we have seen great learning across the school. Meanwhile we are sending our positive vibes and virtual smiles to the children that remain at home – and at the same time congratulate you for persevering with your home learning.
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.
