Welcome to Rowan Class.
This year the teachers in Rowan class are Mr Bell, Mrs Baron, Miss Mulla, Miss Ali and Miss Patel.
Welcome to Summer term.
We have another amazing and busy half term with lots of exciting and interesting topics for the children to learn all about.
We have 2 topics this term. One is called "Green fingers" looking at plants and the other "May the force be with you" focusing on forces around us.
During our first topic we will be drawing, making and directing flowering plants so that we can understand what all the different parts do. We will be doing some computing lessons looking at using Scratch to program. Learning about outputs and inputs and how we can make a 'sprite' move!
