Welcome to Rowan Class 2019-2020!
In Rowan class, our learning team has Miss Rogers, Mrs Evans, Mrs Crawley & Mrs Wallett to help you with your learning. We are always excited to learn in Rowan class!
We have had such a super start to Year 1 last half-term. We are already really good at following the rules and routines in Rowan class, and we are learning how to be a great team by being good friends and working together.
The adults in Rowan class are so impressed with the homework that the children are doing, and we have loads of Reading Superstars earning prizes each week for super reading - WELL DONE!!
We are going to be doing lots of learning linked to magic and exploring some exciting things like potions :) We have also got lots of magical seasonal things to look forward to as well!
In History, we will be finding out about the origins of Bonfire Night by learning about Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot. What do you think Guy Fawkes was plotting?
In Geography, we will be continuing our journey around the globe, which we started last half-term. We will learn how to locate a range of different countries on a map or atlas, and think about the physical geography, such as the environment and characteristics of these countries. What countries do you know apart from the UK where we live?
In Art, we are going to be looking at some Christmas artwork and thinking about different kinds of decorations that we can design and make. We are going to link this to our Design Technology, where we will be thinking about designing, making and evaluating some Christmassy things to take home. What kinds of decoration do you put up at home?
In Religious Education (RE), we will be learning about the origins of the nativity and finding out what Christians believe about the birth of Jesus. We are going to find out why Christians celebrate at Christmas and how. What do you already know about the nativity story? Can you remember any of the main characters?
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:
