Rowan Class

Welcome to Rowan Class, our Lower Key Stage 2 class (Years 3 and 4).

Autumn Term 2021

This term we getting to grips with the past as in history; we’re finding out what life was like back in the Stone Age and considering the question – were Stone Age people really simply hunter gathers? We’ve had some great discussions around this very question and found evidence that suggests they were so much more. Life must have been hard with only stone to use as a tool. We found out just how difficult it was to grind wheat into flour with only stones- time consuming and quite tiring after a while!

Our Class novel for this half term is loosely linked in with history, as we dive into the classic children’s novel, Stig of the Dump. We’re exploring the text, the characters and new vocabulary.

In science this term we’re investigating forces and magnets. Is it magic or is it forces at work?

We’ve had the exciting opportunity to twin with a school in London this year and have already made videos of our local area to share with them. It was great compare and contrast the two different localities. The children were fascinated with all the different buildings and had so many questions! We hope to meet up face to face later in the year and get to know our new friends.

Take a look at some of our work below.
