Y3/4 Rowan - Mrs Peacock

Hello Rowan Class


It only seems like last week that we were saying goodbye to each other and wishing everyone a happy summer holiday.  Time flies when you have fun!


One thing to get used to is that our class is now called Rowan.  Can you identify what a rowan tree looks like? I had to do some research myself but luckily there are quite a few rowan trees in the playgrounds for us to look at.  

Just a couple of reminders -  our PE days will be indoor PE on Tuesdays and outdoor PE on Wednesdays.  Remember that you come into school on those days in your PE kits.  If the weather is a little chilly, you can come in wearing your joggers on your Indoor PE days.  Please remember that you will need to take earrings out for PE lessons, so if you can't do this yourself, you will need to take them out before you come to school.  However, there will be no PE lessons until w.c 13th September.


I'm really looking forward to seeing you all and to working with you this term.

What an exciting first week we have had!  We have played lots of social skills games, building on our 5 Ways to Well-being focus.  I have never seen such enthusiastic parachute-shaking before!  We have also produced some beautiful collaborative artwork (pictures to follow) and finished the week with a range of interactive maths and spelling games.  Hopefully, we will all have a restful weekend.

Today we had lots of fun exploring different areas of maths.  We did some outdoor artwork in a shape investigation, made futuristic space bases using nets of 3D shapes, replanned the classroom layout and finally taught each other card games.  

NSPCC Maths Day

We have had lots of fun so far this STEM week, doing lots of practical activities to explore a range of scientific and design concepts.  Later this week, we will be having our Maths day as well.

Designing robobugs for different jobs, including construction, search and rescue and exploration.

We had a lot of fun learning about the myth of St George and the Dragon.

We listened carefully to the story and spent some mindfulness time connecting with others and retelling the story!
