Rowan

Welcome to Rowan Class
 
Our class teacher is Miss Marshall and is helped by Mrs Chapman. We have a lovely classroom on the first floor with a balcony and wonderful views across our school field.
 
During the Autumn Term, Rowan Class enjoyed a trip to the London Eye and Tate Modern to link with our Power of Reading book, 'The London Eye Mystery' by Siobhan Dowds. We studied the geography of the UK in Humanities and Materials and their Properties in Science. 
 
In the Spring Term, we read William Grill's 'Shackleton's Journey' about Sir Ernest Shackleton's unsuccessful 1914 attempt to cross Antarctica, as well as his epic, heroic rescue mission to save his stranded crew. We also learned about explorers in history and their motivation and destinations, and tried our hand at bowl weaving (using recycled T-shirt yarn) in Art. We supplemented our Science study of our solar system with a visit form the Herstmonceux pop-up planetarium.
 
In the Summer Term, we aim to study the Maya and the ecology of rainforest regions. We have planned an overnight residential at the Hindleap Warren Centre, where we hope to explore bushcraft activities.
