We will also focus on fitness and the scientific reasoning behind exercise and warming up and stretching.

Spellings and Times Tables:

Both will be handed out on a Monday. The children will write their spellings into their spelling books, so these must be in  school every Monday. Times Tables will be sent home on a slip of paper, advicing the children ways to practice. Please help children practice and then test them regularly throughout the week.

English in Rowan

This half term we will be focussing our English work around the biography 'Manfish' by Jennifer Berne. This biography is about the famous explorer Jacques Cousteau. Throughout this half term the children will be aiming to write a biography about a famous explorer, using specific features of a biography. The children will recap skills such as adverbs, relative clauses, modal verbs, expanded noun phrases, brackets/ dashes/ commas for parethesis and apostrophes for possession.

Rowan's Topic

Our topic work this half term is the Anglo-Saxons and the Scots. We will begin by researching key dates and facts linked to the Anglo-Saxons and the Scots, followed by looking at settlements during this time. We will be completing DT activities throughout the term, designing our own Anglo-Saxon settlements and Brooches!

Week by week, the class will delve deeper and become more knowledge about the Anglo-Saxons and the Scots.

Science in Rowan

Adults including humans is this half terms focus! We will begin by researching and exploring the gestation period of humans and animals, forming graphs to represent this data. The children will be exploring what happens as a baby grows, ensuring scientific vocabulary is used appropriately. Finally, Rowan Class will be learning about the changes humans experience as they grow up.

Get experimenting!

At Darnhall Primary School, we want our children to be explorers and investigators - we want them to be Scientists!
