Rowan 2 has been using Purple Mash online to create some beautiful pieces of art based on Mondrian. They explored a variety of pictures of shapes and used their preferred method of communication to state what they could see in the art. They then got the chance to create their own using 2paintapicture. Pupils used their early writing skills to create both horizontal and vertical lines. They really enjoyed using technology to support their learning.
Maple 2 and WIllow 2 received a visit from PC Simon and PCSO Maria this week. Our visitors talked to the pupils about rules and what our school, and community would be like without them. We soon came to realise how difficult and unpleasant our world might become without any boundaries. The pupils learnt how important rules are to keep everyone safe. PC Simon set the pupils a challenge to write down one rule golden rule they are trying hard to abide by and they will share it with them on their next visit. Thank you for coming and spending so much time answering all the questions.
This Monday morning, Ash 1 were super excited to receive a special gift from the Elves and Fairies we have been helping adjacent to our KS1 Outdoor Learning Topic.
The children enjoyed exploring the role play items created from natural objects they themselves collected last term.
This week pupils and staff at Rowan Tree Primary School have enjoyed a range of activities in relation to Mental Health Awareness Week. This years official theme has been ‘Loneliness’ and, across the week, we have been building meaningful connections with our friends and colleagues.
Staff have had opportunities to take part in group walks, exercise classes and gift giving schemes. Pupils have enjoyed an inclusive whole school cinema day, championing Literacy skills by reading to their younger school members, learning outside together and working as a team to spread positivity wherever they can.
Charlie our registered PAT dog came in for his first official session with the children today. All of the children loved spending time with him, he was very calm and loving towards the children. Charlie will be coming in every week to work with Ash 1 and Birch 2. They will enjoy talking to him, petting him, and reading with him.
