Welcome to Rowan Class.
This year the teachers in Rowan class are Mr Bell, Mrs Baron, Miss Mulla, Miss Ali and Miss Patel.
Welcome back after the New Year to Spring term.
We have another amazing and busy half term with lots of exciting and interesting topics for the children to learn all about.
Our new topic is called "Out of the box" where we will be looking at creating a healthy food product, with a focus on enterprise, science and PSHE. We will be looking at heathy eating, designing packaging and how we could sell our product.
Keep an eye out for our products....you never know we may even make it onto the Dragon's Den!!!

This term we will be covering a lot of topics in English.
We start with a reading week and then move on to poetry where we will focus on limerick, kenning and haiku. Ask your children what each of the poem types are...they all have special rules!
Then Rowan class will move to characterisation using the Mr Men books written by Roger Hargreaves. The children will analyse the books, write descriptions of the characters and then make up their own.
Maths this term will focus on 2D shape (ask your children how many 2D shapes they can name and see if they can tell you their properties), measurement using a whole range of different units and problem solving.
PE will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 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 learning a musical instrument, this term it is the drums.
Homework will be given out on a Wednesday and needs to be returned on the following Monday.
Reading books will be changed weekly every Monday.
