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 Part 2.
We have another exciting and busy half term with more exciting and interesting topics for the children to learn all about.
We have one big topic this half term. It is called 'Three Giant Steps' and will be brilliant!
The Geography part of the topic focused on different parts of the country and world, how the 'human and physical' features are different depending where you go. It will look at the White Cliffs of Dover, the Canadian Rockies and Northern France.
Science is looking at rocks. The children will find out what porosity means and which rocks are more porous than others. There will be experiments and some research too.
Art will focus on two artists; Monet and Cezanne. We will be mixing colours and learning how to create different effects by the way we use our brushes.
Design and Technology is learning how to use textiles and creating sketches to make different effects. The children will be learning skills based around measuring and cutting carefully and the different ways that materials can be joined.
During PSHE the children will learn about diversity (not the dance group!). What it means and how it can be appreciated in school and society.
