Mrs Moorby-Lewis (Monday - Thursday)
Mrs Churchill (Friday)
Welcome to our class page, where you will hopefully find everything you need as a member of Rowan Class. If you have any questions, please use our class email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome to Rowan Class. My name is Mrs Moorby-Lewis and I will be your teacher this year. I began my teaching career in 2009 and have been a teacher at The Pines for the last six years.
In terms of my own schooling, I grew up in Sandhurst and went to school in Bracknell. It was in Year 1 at primary school that I developed an interest in music. I started to learn the piano and flute and, as a result, have had the privilege of playing music at many of my friends’ weddings, as well as at Disneyland, Paris. At secondary school, I really enjoyed learning French and have spent time living in both Nantes and Strasbourg, teaching in some schools over there as part of my university degree. Outside of school, my spare time is spent dancing, playing hockey and watching football. I support Manchester United and am very much looking forward to this season (and potentially getting to see Ronaldo play). I live with my husband and two cats, which we rescued as kittens five years ago, and love nothing more than catching up and spending time with friends and family.

Chloe is 'Star of the Week' in Rowan Class for her fantastic mystery narrative writing, where she incorporated lots of descriptive language, as well as some of the sentence openers we have looked at this week. Keep up the great work, Chloe.

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.

Rowan class doors will open each day at 8:40 and finish the day at 3:10. You will come into school and leave school using the external Year 5/6 door, which opens on to the courtyard. The door is labelled with, 'Rowan - Mrs Moorby-Lewis'.
