Hello and a welcome to Rowan Class!  

My name is Miss Marshall and working in our class is Mrs Chapman. The class is covered by Mrs Scales on a Thursday afternoon.  Mrs Scales also works with a small group of Year 5 children for Maths everyday. 

Things I particularly enjoy include, spending time in our wonderful outside grounds and observing the fantastic wildlife we capture on our wildlife camera. I enjoy teaching all subjects but particularly enjoy teaching Maths, Science and RE.  In my spare time I enjoy taking my dog for walks in the countryside and going on adventures in my kayak.

We have had an action packed year so far.  We have studied Space which included a fantastic trip to Hurstmonceux, forces, the history of exploration and learnt about the exciting and remarkable adventures of Shackleton.  This term we are carrying on our theme of exploration by reading the brilliant adventure book: The Explorer by Katherine Rundell.  We will be learning about the Amazon rainforest and we are especially looking forward to our 'Survival Day' in the woods.  Also this term we are exploring the Ancient Maya Civilization.  In the summer term we will be reading The London Eye Mystery.  One of the highlights of this topic will be a day trip to London and travelling on the London Eye.

We do try to keep the pages up to date and share photos of what we've been up to and some useful resources to support your children with their learning, so do please keep checking back.
