Welcome to Rowan Class.
This year the teachers in Rowan class are Miss G, Mrs Baron, Miss Mulla, Mrs Barnes.
Welcome to Summer Term Part 1.
Welcome back after the Easter holidays. Hope you have all enjoyed your fortnight off.
This half term we will be completing two new topics, 'When Mickey met Wallace' and 'Rocky the Findosaur' .
The focus of the first topic is on Animation and looks at different types including; stop frame, paper, sand and computer. We are currently trying to book a trip or a visitor into school who will help us create our own animations!
The topic also includes work during PSHE lessons on finding out what we are all good at, in particular 'Our Strengths' and 'Future Me'. Science will focus on 'light and sound' so we can light up our set and create the sound effects.
During the art lessons we will be looking at comic strips, in particular at the creator of Denis the Menace David Law.
Our music lessons will focus on some classical music, specifically Beethoven and Mozart. We will learn about the people and why their music was special then and is still special now.
Our English lessons will focus on Dragons! We will be writing narrative stories and some non-fiction writing where we will write newspaper articles. There will be some excited creative lessons around the dragons too!!
Keep working on the Times Table Rockstars. We have some children already to the summit....but we need more!
Guided reading will take place daily in class but we would urge you to listen to your child read at least three times a week at home. Every time you hear your child read please sign their reading journal so that your child can earn themselves a reading award.
Many children have already achieved their bronze award so we know that YOUR child can do it too with a little support. We look forward to posting some of the award winners on Class Dojo!
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.
Keep checking Class Dojo for more information, pictures and updates.
