Fantastic Fleetwood!

1W had a lovely day trip to Fleetwood. We took with us a list of things to try and spot while we were at the seaside.

Firstly, we spent some time on the beach. The children made sandcastles, collected shells and had fun on the sand.

Next was lunch – yummy fish and chips which the children (and the teachers!) enjoyed lots.

Another little ride to the seafront and we all enjoyed an ice-cream.

Lots of tired eyes on the way home – must be the sea air!

Vive La France!

We had a lovely morning on our World Cup challenge day. We had picked France to concentrate on and found lots of activities to try.

We tried brioche, baguette, brie, croissant and pain au chocolat – yummy!

Then it was outside to play the traditional French game of boules – some of the children were (perhaps unintentionally!) brilliant at this!

Lastly, we had a building activity where the children had to try and build a mini Eiffel Tower with building blocks or Lego.

It was a great morning and enjoyed by all involved. If you could make it, thank you for coming. If you couldn’t make it this time, see if your child can answer any questions about France and what we have been learning. 🙂

Au Revoir!

1W Visit Bolton Mosque

1W had a lovely visit to a mosque in Bolton on Wednesday. We were greeted very warmly by everyone we met there and had a special tour round all the different areas. The children were very interested in learning about how Muslims worship and had lots of interesting questions to ask.

And, of course, they all behaved brilliantly and were a credit to our school.

World Book Day!

1W have had a lot of fun on this World Book Day. As well as dressing as their favourite character, the children took part in a whole school reading session. 1W read the book, Giraffes Can’t Dance and all the children played the part of one of the animals from the book – using masks and dancing around class.

1W’s Multicultural Week

1W have had a brilliant week and experienced lots of new things.


Our topic is Africa and our trip to an African food stall on Bolton Market was very interesting and very yummy!! We came back and dressed up in traditional African clothing, like Handa in our book.


In RE, we have been learning about the Muslim religion. The children have heard about how devout Muslims pray with their prayer mats facing Mecca and have dressed up in beautiful clothes.

Hollywood Comes to Rowan Tree!!

In true Hollywood style, we had a fantastic ‘after show party’ when our Christmas production finished this morning! How glamorous are we?!

There was cake, Vimto and Christmas crackers 🙂

The cracker jokes were as hilarious as usual – we had a vote and the favourite was as follows:

Where do you take a sick horse?

The horse-pital!

(I accept no responsibility for how funny this joke actually is!)
