Welcome to Rowan Class!
The staff working in Rowan class are Mrs Rees, Miss Lindsell, Mrs Evans, Miss Dakowicz and Mrs Godlewska. If you have any questions or issues please come and speak to us.
We are all looking forward to meeting you and finding out about you and the things you like. In Rowan class Mrs Rees loves numbers and reading lovely stories wrote by the children, Miss Lindsell loves art and craft things, Mrs Evans loves Mr Men stories, Miss Dakowicz loves science investigations and Mrs Godlewska loves gardening and the outdoors. What do you like to do? Come and tell us as we really want to know all the things that you enjoy!
This half term in Rowan class our topic will be ourselves and animals. We will find out that humans are animals, about different animal groups, finding out about animals from Australia and doing lots of art work linked to animals and Australia.
Also we will be making lots of new friends in our new class, singing lots of songs (we all missed this last year) and finding out about what makes each other special. We hope you will look at our parents forecast to find out more information.
PE will be on Thursday each week.
Children will need to bring their PE kits on a Monday and we will send them home on a Friday. Anybody who wears earrings will need to remove them either at home or be able to do this in class independently. Any questions please just come and ask!
This half term in Rowan class we have an homework menu about animals and ourselves which links to our topic in class. Please complete an activity each week and return the homework by Wednesday.
Any problems please come and see an adult in Rowan class before Wednesday.
Apart from the obvious benefits of improving reading skills, by encouraging children to read regularly, it can improve their imagination, spelling and punctuation accuracy. Reading also improves their concentration and vocabulary. The habit also makes children more stylish writers, as they copy elements of authors they have enjoyed and adopt these as their own. Children who read for pleasure are far more academically successful than those that don’t. So it really is a no-brainer: good reading habits make successful children.
By reading regularly with you and discussing the situation that characters find themselves in, children have an invaluable opportunity to help build empathy skills. For example, if a character in a book is being treated unkindly by a classmate, it gives a ‘safe space’ for relationships and treatment of others to be discussed in a situation where children can be objective and measured, rather than approaching the issue with bias and heightened emotion, as may often be the case when these situations arise in their real lives.
In Rowan class we will have the 'Reading Superstar' system. This involves you and your child sharing a book; they will get a tick for each day they read which will earn them a prize.
3 times (days) a week - your child will earn 1 team point.
4 times (days) a week - your child will earn 2 team points.
5 or more times (days) - your child will earn 3 team points and a prize from the prize box.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
