World Book Day 2020

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!

World Book Day!

Wow! What a fantastic day celebrating reading across the school.

We started our World Book Day celebration with a quiz all about books and authors, where Mr Brown and his team took on Miss Long and her group.

After making the difficult decision about best dressed (so many excellent costumes this year!), the children returned to classrooms to embark on a range of activities all relating to reading.

Years 5 and 6 completed a ‘Kid Normal’ author masterclass all focussed on friendship. Years 3 and 4 looked at the masterclass about characters and imagery.   Years 1 and 2 focussed on the book, ‘The day the Crayons Quit’. And, in Year R they looked at designing book covers for their favourite books.

KS2 also met Lewis Kay, a young, self-published author – he was a true inspiration to our children.  He has left us some of his books, which are on display in the library, for all to enjoy.

We hope the children enjoyed their day! Don’t forget to keep tallying in your child’s reading diary every time they read for 10 minutes so they can be part of the ‘Share a Million Stories‘ competition we are following.

On Thursday the 5th of March the whole school had a day where we dressed up as our favourite book characters. In the morning we had a competition of who had the best costume. This was followed with a quiz which team B won. During the day different classes took one of the books that we can buy with a £1 book token and made something from that book. We also got a chance to meet and talk to a young local author.

Biathlon - Run and Ride for Fun!

Personal Best Education (PBEd) and Miss Ramsdale organised our Biathlon Day as part of our drive to promote healthy and active lifestyles – and to get children riding their bikes for fun! The day was a big success despite the rainy weather.

On Wednesday 4th March, the children got to participate in a school biathlon which was enjoyed by many. However, the weather proved to be a problem as the field was extremely muddy. Luckily, the pupils still got to run and cycle with a big smile on their faces. We look forward to the biathlon next year and encourage everyone to ride their bike every once in a while.
