Rowan Class

Welcome to Rowan Class

Creation

As part of their learning about creation, Rowan Class were interested in researching problems caused by litter and plastic.  After going on a litter pick around the school site, we decided to create these posters.

During the topic, we also explored stories about creation from around the world, learnt about the solar system and created our own planets, explored the importance of the water cycle for life on earth and found out about the earliest people, including a Stone Age day at Gressenhall.

Celebrations

In our current theme we are focussing on the role of light and music in helping people celebrate.  Some of the things the children wanted to learn are:

  • Can we live without sun or light?
  • What is the festival of light?
  • How are lights made & powered?
  • Why do we have candles on cakes?

We want to learn about making up songs, playing musical instruments, songs & music from around the world.

Children also had lots of questions about fire & fireworks so we decided to read The Firework Maker’s Daughter by Philip Pulman as our class novel.
