Rowan Class

Welcome to Rowan Class

Welcome to the Rowan Class page. Have a look at our class newsletter to see an overview of what we will be learning this term.

What we’re reading in class:

In our literacy lessons, we will be reading The Ever-Changing Earth by Graham Baker Smith and The Humans: Ancient Civilisations by Jonny Marx.

To promote reading for pleasure, the children will have an opportunity to contribute to our class reading scrapbook over the academic year. Each week a member of the class will be chosen to take the scrapbook folder home and create a page based on their favourite book. Please encourage your child to be creative with their page and enjoy the opportunity for book talk.

In addition to school reading books and allocated books on Bug Club, we want to encourage children to read a variety of books. The Year 4 booklist below covers a range of genres and themes which have been matched to the age, developmental stage and interest level of children in Year 4.

Muddy Moments:

Please ensure that your child has a change of footwear in school, as we will continue to take 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.

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!

TT Rockstars:

Please encourage your child to access TTRockstars on a regular basis to support their times tables fluency. If your child has difficulty accessing TTRockstars or has forgotten their username/password, please do let me know.

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.
