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.
We share our latest news and annoucements here…
It’s really wonderful to see the children back into some sporting action again! Some of our lucky Year 1/2 children headed over to Starlight Gymnastics and Year 5/6 competed in a local hockey tournament. Back in school, Year 3/4 have had a fiery start to their new topic ‘Icelandic Explorers’, whilst our Year Rs have been a little more explosive!
Year R have had a wonderful trip to Longdown Farm, Year 1/2 have created fantastic Rainforest Art, Year 3/4 have been doing the sack race and Year 5/6 have been learning about transitions through the story of Joseph and his Technicolour Coat. And today, all of our children met their new teachers!
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!
