Rowan Class

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 2.


Welcome back after the half term break.  The children have settled in well and enjoyed learning about the topics so far.  This half term the children will initially be learning about World War I and Remembrance Day.  We have already been to visit the local war memorial and discussed the reasons for the Great War starting.  We will continue to find out more about what the people had to go through both at home and abroad.  The children will find out facts about the war, the trenches, the poetry and the Christmas truce.  


This will lead into our next topic which is called 'The Spirit of Christmas'.  Here we will be looking at the Christmas traditions that take place here in Britain and in a specific African country.  They will find out about the country, the people and the customs linked to the festive period.  The children will learn Christmas songs, complete craft activities and festive dance.  


The children will also complete science activities linked to forces and friction.




This term we will be focusing on various elements of the curriculum, including:

Literacy - Playscripts, Fantasy Story Innovation, Explanations

Numeracy— Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division methods

Geography - Comparing an African country to England, specifically linking to the festival of Christmas.

Science - Friction and forces
