Welcome to Rowan ClassRowan-Class-Newsletter-Autumn-1
Have a look at our class newsletter to see an overview of what we will be covering this term!
This term, our school wide theme is impact. After exploring what this means, Rowan class have brainstormed their ideas and generated questions to guide our learning journey. Just a few examples of these include:
What is the impact if a volcano erupts?
How does electricity effect the world?
What is the impact if you get struck by electricity?
Which person was the strongest in the Roman empire?
What we’re reading in class:
The children voted for Toto the Ninja Cat as our class book this term. In addition to this, we will be reading Mouse Bird Snake Wolf by Dave McKean in our literacy lessons. In our writing lessons we will be exploring persuasive language and writing letters. We will also be writing book reviews.
Please ensure that your child has a change of footwear in school, as we will be taking elements of our lessons outdoors throughout the term. Outdoor lessons may be linked to any subject, however, an example for Maths may involve creating place value grids and number lines using bamboo canes and natural resources.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can catch me at the classroom door at the beginning or end of school. For those longer discussions, please don’t hesitate to book an appointment to talk over the phone or in person.
Rowan enjoyed taking their learning outside and made roman numerals from natural resources.
We also used bamboo canes and natural materials to help us construct number lines!
