Welcome to Rowan Class! My name is Miss Wood and I am really excited to be your teacher this year. When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family, including finding new walks to explore with my springer spaniel, Milo. As he is an energetic dog, we also love agility training, where he goes over jumps, runs through tunnels, balances in seesaws and climbs a tall A frame. I am looking forward to getting to know you this year too!
Meet the Teacher September 2023
Our main classroom door for the start of the day is in the courtyard. You will be dismissed from the same door at the end of the day.
Our regular P.E lessons will be on Tuesday afternoons and Friday afternoons. You should come to school wearing P.E kit on both of those days.
This term, our curriculum learning is 'A Child's War' with the aim of answering the big questions: Does adversity make us stronger? For the full details of this unit, have a look at our Knowledge Organiser below.
Our class reader will be Orphans of the Tide.
At the moment, we are particularly focusing on the following:
English: We are kicking off the term with some poetry themed around The Blitz, followed by recount writing.
Maths: Fractions, decimals and percentages - recognising equivalence between them all, as well as finding fractions of quantities and percentages.
Science: This terms science is Evolution and Inheritance. We were introduced to elements of this during our Science Week and can't wait to find out more.
PHSE: We will be learning what prejudice and discrimination are and how stereotypes contribute to these.
DT: Taking inspiration from the Make Do and Mend during the war effort, we will be making a pencil case or cushion for ourselves using old uniform as a memory of our times at The Pines.
RE: In our R.E lesson, we will be answering the question - How well does faith help people to cope with matters of life and death?
