Welcome to Rowan




PE kits should be in school every Tuesday and Friday

Spellings and Times Tables:

Spellings will be handed out on a Monday. The children will be given a list of the spellings to stick into their reading diaries so that they can be practised at home. Reading diaries need to be brought to school every day.


Some children are still working on being able to recall their times table facts at speed and with confidence. It is recommeded that children focus on one times table a week and practise these in a variety of ways - through playing games, making posters, testing one another with a friend etc.


Spring Term 2020

English in Rowan

This half term we will be focussing our English work around the 'The Darkest Dark' which is about an astronaut named Chris Hadfield. Throughout this half term the children will be aiming to write a narrative about a jounrey into space. This will involve describing settings and characters in detail. The children will learn some new skills such as using dashes, commas and brackets for parenthesis, as well as recapping relative claises, expanded noun phrases and using apostrophes accurately. 



Rowan's Topic

Our history topic this term will focus on Kings and Queens of England since 1066. The children will have chance to study, in detail, several Kings and Queens and will explore how the change in monarchy effected Britain. 


Science in Rowan

This half term our science topic is all about living things and their habitats. The children will explore various characteristics of animal groups, their life-cycles, habitats and also the reproduction of plants. 

Throughout the unit of work, children will widen their understanding of flowering plants and will explore how plants are suitable for a particular environment.
