Welcome to Rowan Class!
In Rowan class, Miss Rogers, Mrs Evans, Mrs Davis & Mrs Wallett are here to help us with our learning. We are very excited to share our learning with you this half-term.
Our new topic is 'Contrasts', so we are going to be looking at things like light/dark, loud/quiet, hot/cold. We will be studying some different places in Geography on opposite sides of the world. We will be looking at toys and games in the past for our grandparents in History, comparing them to the modern tablets and toys we play with today. In ICT, we are going to be starting some programming work using a coding program, and comparing it with programmable toys like the BeeBots. In RE, we are going to be comparing what we already know about Christianity to some new learning about the Muslim faith.
At Kirkby Avenue Primary School, we believe reading to be extremely important. Reading underpins so many other areas of the curriculum and supports the children in developing their imagination. To support your child with their reading, we ask that you listen to them read at home as often as possible and record this in their ‘Reading Record’.
In school, we have a ‘Reading Superstars’ system for the number of times your child reads with you at home. For Key Stage 1, the breakdown for this is as follows:
