Welcome to Rowan Class.
This year the teachers in Rowan class are Miss G, Mrs Baron, Miss Mulla, Mrs Barnes.
Welcome to Autumn Term Part 1.
Welcome back after the 6 week holiday. We hope you have had a lovely break and enjoyed a well earned rest (perhaps not you parents!)
We hope you are looking forward to a fun packed half term with your new teachers and class mates.
Our topic this term will be 'Under Attack'
“Under Attack!” is a thematic unit, based around invaders and settlers with a key focus on history. It begins by looking at the Romans, before moving on to learning about the invasion of the Anglo Saxons and their settlement in Britain, followed by the Vikings. Pupils will learn about sources of evidence and their reliability.
This term we will be focusing on various elements of the curriculum, including:
Literacy - Fables, Newspaper Reports, Poetry
Numeracy—Place value and calculation, 2D shape, Length/Perimeter, Statistics,
History—Romans, Anglo-Saxons and the
Vikings and the effects of these on Britain.
Science - Materials, specifically rocks and their properties.
ICT - E-safety
Music - Composing a soundscape.
Art & DT – Mosaics, sculpture and shelter
PHSE— persistence & resilience
PE will take place on Tuesday afternoons and Friday morning. Children will need to make sure their PE kit is in school on these days.
Swimming (Year 3's only!) will take place on Friday mornings at the new Blackburn Swimming Baths. Children will need to remember their swimming costumes, towels and hats (girls only). During the same period, the Year 4 children will be having their PE session.
