Welcome to Rowan class in September 2019!
Hello and welcome to our class page.This year we are a small class of eight Year Two children and our teacher is Miss Darby.
In Autumn Term 1 our Literacy lessons focus on the Traditional Tales of The Three Billy Goats Gruff and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. Here we will be writing our very own stories by creating new, interesting characters, describing different settings and learning key elements that make a great story.
So far, the children have enjoyed participating in Invasion games in PE and have spent time outside searching for signs of Autumn in Science. We are using our developing computing skills to code and create animations showing how the seasons change throughout the year. In Geography the children have been learning about the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world and have started plotting these on a world map. We have been getting messy in Art by creating our own masks in preparation for Diwali and can't wait to show you our finished pieces!

Hampshire Fire Service Visit
On Tuesday 15th of October Oak and Rowan class had a special visitor from Hampshire Fire Service! This linked in with the Topic 'People who Help Us' that Oak class have been following this term.
The children had a great time learning about what household items are safe to play with and which items are best to avoid. They also learnt that it is important for families to test their smoke alarms each week and how to respond in case there's a fire inside: 1. Get out, 2. Stay out, 3. Call 999 .
The children discussed which people and emergency service would come to help in different emergency situations and enjoyed looking at a Firefighters clothing and equipment. Our visitor was very impressed with the children's sensible responses and fantastic behaviour. What a brilliant morning!
