Friday 16th September - Play Leader Training

Rowan Class had a wonderful day today, completing play leader training with two fantastic coaches from the Sports Partnership. The children learned lots of skills that they would require, to become safe, engaging play leaders. The children worked in groups to devise a series of games and then worked with their peers to collect equipment, refine the rules and set up the space. This afternoon the children trialled their games to the Year 1 children. They worked brilliantly and lots of fun was had by all.

D & T Curriculum Enrichment Day

Today the whole school took part in the 'If you were an engineer what would you do?' competition.

The competition encouraged the children to look at the world around them and find engineered solutions to common problems. Before they created their own inventions they were lucky enough to have a live assembly with engineer Ben Edmonds. Ben works for Dyson and gave the children an insight in what life is like as a successful inventor and engineer! 

In the afternoon, the children carried out a spaghetti and marshmallow tower challenge!

It has been a long time since we last had a class assembly in front of an audience, and the children did well to project their voices and show great confidence.

Well done Rowan Class!

Anti Bullying Day - One Kind Word

15th-19th November was Anti-Bullying week and the theme was 'One Kind Word'.

Each day Rowan class focused on 'One Kind Word' - tolerance, inclusion, diversity and difference.

Throughout the week, the children took part in activities linked to 'One Kind Word', spent time talking about the meaning of each word, and how it is important to share our similarities and accept our differences.

To end our week, on Friday Rowan class made a pledge to put an end to bullying.

'Kindness fuels kindness'!
