The Danspiration Workshop, held recently at Rowan Tree Primary School, had a profound impact on learners who thoroughly enjoyed the dance session. More Than Words, the driving force behind the initiative, demonstrated a strong commitment to making performing arts accessible to everyone.
Both learners and staff actively participated in the workshop, expressing their enjoyment through smiles and laughter that resonated in the school hall. Beyond the celebration of dance, the collaborative nature of the event has hopefully set the stage for potential future partnerships between our school’s Sing and Sign Choir and More Than Words. The workshop’s success is a clear testament to the practical and transformative influence of the arts in enriching the lives of individuals with diverse abilities and backgrounds.
Today we introduced Justin to Rowan.
Justin has his very own therapy dog at home but is struggling to interact and even touch him.
Great job Justin and of course Rowan. 🐾⚽️⭐️
Recently we have been very lucky to welcome the children from the Lighthouse, which is the SEN provision at Meadowbank school, to our school every Monday. The children have been visiting Poplar 1 and Fir 2. They have been having lots of fun joining in with our P.E sessions, messy play and mark making activities and just spending time getting to know their peers. It’s been a great chance for our children to meet and greet other children from our community and for staff to connect and learn best practice from each other.
During the Autumn term pupils in KS2 have had the opportunity to take part in an After School Boxing session every Wednesday with Dave from ‘Boxing for Better’. They have enjoyed learning the skills of boxing as well as teamwork games whilst having lots of fun.
St. Phillips Church has recently had the pleasure of welcoming the Sing and Sign Choir. Members of the congregation had the fantastic opportunity to watch the choir demonstrating various signs while performing eight songs! It was a truly captivating experience that showcased the power of communication through sign language and Rowan Tree’s commitment to a Total Communication Environment.
We are incredibly grateful for our close links with St. Phillips Church, which made this visit possible. It is through partnerships like these that we can continue to provide unique and enriching opportunities to our learners.
Birch 2 have been learning about how trains have changed over time, they watched videos of steam trains and use symbols to label the different parts of a steam train. Then they used rollers to create their own steam train tracks in messy art.
The pupils have been exploring and learning more about healthy food options and how to keep their teeth sparkling. Each day after dinner, the pupils are encouraged to brush their teeth whilst listening to our teeth brushing song.
