Star of the Week

This week, the pupils in Rowan Class have been practising writing biographies. I have been particularly impressed with Mati, who has been working really hard to use joined handwriting. Well done Mati - you are Rowan's 'Star of the Week'. 










Writing: Biographies. Learning our model text and exploring the skills needed to write a biography including punctuating sentences and clauses, writing in chronological order in past tense, and using a range of time adverbials.


Reading: Class Novel: 'Wonder'

               Other comprehension themes: biographies of astronauts and NASA mathematicians


Maths: Algebra


PE: Tuesdays and Thursdays


Curriculum: What is in the Milky Way?









Our regular PE lessons will now be on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. 


We will do PE outside whenever it is possible. Please make sure your child has suitable outdoor PE kit, including outdoor shoes, for their PE days. Children will be able to wear their PE kit to school on their PE days. 


If your child has their ears pierced, please ensure they are able to remove their earrings for PE. If they are unable to remove them, please provide them with tape to cover their piercings.

Please ensure children are reading at least 4 times a week at home and having this signed by an adult in their reading record after each occasion. Systems for taking books home will be slightly different this year, due to the current situation, however, the children know how this is being managed in class.


We have a wide range of fantastic books in Rowan Class and I look forward to hearing your reviews of them. If you want a book recommendation, please let me know; I read lots of new books over the summer so have plenty to share with you. 


Mrs Moorby-Lewis' Reading Scrap Book

During the first lockdown, I enjoyed reading lots of books. I saw that some teachers had started making a scrap book to share all the good books they'd read with their class. I've still got a few to add to mine, including 'The Star Spun Web' which I'm hoping to read over the coming weeks, but I thought I would share some photos of my scrap book so far.


If any of you have done something similar, I would love to see it. Or perhaps it's something you would be interested in starting during the current lockdown.
