Rowan Class

Rowan Class is a class of 30 Year 2 and 3 children, taught by Mrs Rebekah Richardson and supported by Mrs Amy Cullen and Miss Mary Atkinson. We are also taught by our wonderful headteacher, Mrs Prince, on Fridays.

This term, Rowan Class’ topic is ‘Rotten Romans’.

In this topic, we will be exploring the Roman era and how Romans lived.  For Science, our focus will be on properties of materials. We will start this unit by exploring different solids and liquids before looking at how materials can change their state.  We will also continue to take care of our school allotment.

In RE, we will learn all about Harvest and why this is an important time. We will then begin our topic on Christmas and how Christians celebrate this time of year.

If you would like to see what else we will be up to then here is our Curriculum Newsletter for the Autumn Term.

Here is our curriculum matrix, where you can find all the topics for the rest of the year (A).  Christ Church Curriulum Matrix ROWAN and HAWTHORN CLASS – NEW 2022

Spellings will be tested each Friday and children will bring home the spellings for the whole half term on Friday 9th September.  We ask that children aim to read and access TTRockstars 3 times a week.  Please can children ensure that they bring their reading book into school each day so that we have it for daily reading.

Our PE days are as specified on the school newsletter as Tuesday and Wednesday.  Year 3 children will require their swimming kit each Wednesday.

Please note that we will be following the same matrix as Hawthorn Class this year, but with different tasks.  As we are a mixed key stage class, Year 2 children will be going into Holly Class, with Mrs Thomson, for two afternoons a week – for science, PE and music.  This is to ensure that the Year 2 children complete the Key Stage 1 curriculum before moving into Key Stage 2 next year and also to prepare for the Christmas Nativity and Lancaster Music Festival.  During this time, the Year 3 children will be moving onto the Key Stage 2 programme of study for science, music and PE.

Year 2 children in Rowan Class will also be spending playtimes and lunchtimes outside with the Year 2 children in Holly Class.  This is to help them retain their identity as a cohort, which will aid their transition into Key Stage 2 next year.

If you have any questions regarding our mixed aged class structure or our curriculum, please do not hestitate to contact me at school or via email.
