We share our latest news and annoucements here…
Well done to all of our Key Stage 1 children for a super Nativity play! The whole school was treated to a performance today and we can’t wait to share the video with our parents and carers next week – it’s in video the production stage as I write this! Also, this week Year 5/6 have been writing an unseen scene for the poem The Highwayman, Year 3/4 have been building Roman aqueducts and Year R have been getting ready for Christmas. Only 15 more sleeps!
With the dark evenings drawing in, it’s really important to make sure we are keeping safe! Thank you to Miss Adams for organising our successful ‘Be Bright, Be Seen’ campaign! This week, we also have been making obstacle courses in Year R, designing and creating forms of transport in Year 1/2, printing like Vivienne Westwood in Year 5/6 – and Year 3/4 had a wonderful trip to Butser Farm! Thank you all of the adults who helped to make our day so much fun!
Our new library is officially open, thanks to children’s author and illustrator, Simon Chadwick! Elsewhere, Year R have headed back into space, Year 1/2 have been studying ‘old’ technology, Year 3/4 have been mimicking Kandinsky and Year 5/6 have been very busy, including a workshop with the fire service.
This week, read about Year 3/4’s historical cooking, how Year 1/2 have made their own dragons, Year 5/6’s successful rugby festival and how Year R have been learning to measure. We also held our harvest festival online with Reverend Graeme – well done to Year 2 for their thoughtful prayers! A fun week for all to end the half term!
Summer is here and what a year it has been – full of ups and downs but we believe we have come through stronger. We have built even stronger relationships with our community despite not being physically together and while, understandably, it is still an anxious time, it is also a time for hope. We can’t wait to get back to what we do best and remember that ‘every storm runs out of rain’. We are so proud to be part of Team Rownhams!
