Primary School

Welcome to the Rowans!

Our Class Teacher is Miss Lewis.

Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Jeffs.

Here are some activities that we have done in Autumn 1.


The Rowans have been learning how to follow and write instructions. The class created instructions on how to make paper pumpkins and followed them to see if they worked. As you can see from the pictures below, they were a success!


The Rowans have been revisiting addition, subtraction and subitising this half term. The class had great fun showing off their subitising skills during their Lego Tower board-game. The aim was to roll the dice, and then match the numeral to the number represented on the Lego block. The person with the tallest tower at the end was the winner! 



The Rowans are practicing their programming skills, aiming to create a space-themed mini-game. The Year 2's were brushing up on their programming knowledge by introducing the Year 1's to the world of Scratch!



The Rowans have been learning about the artist Andy Goldsworthy. They were inspired by his natural sculptures to create a class project of a tree made out of the fallen Autumn leaves. They carefully cut of the stems to use as the trunk, then used the leaves to create an ombré from green to dark brown.



The Rowans had great fun trying out different exercises that they might do at break-time. They were deciding which exercises they though made their heart beat the fastest, their muscles feel the strongest, their bodies feel the most flexible, and made them feel the happiest!


This half term, the Rowans were learning about and commemorating the life of the Queen. They traced over a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and used water-colours to bring their images to life.

Here are some activities that we have done in Autumn 2.

Anti-Bullying Week

For anti-bullying week in Rowans, we have been discussing how wonderful it is that we are all different. To celebrate this, as well as wearing our odd socks to school, we coloured in our own odd socks to display in the classroom!


The Rowans have been exploring Measurement in Maths. They worked in groups to sort the objects into best measured by Length, Mass or Volume. 


The Rowans have been comparing Seaside Holidays over the last 150 years. They were using what they have learnt to sort the photographs into chronological order: 100 years ago, 50 years ago and today!

Winter Decorations

The Rowans had great fun decorating their snowflakes, snowmen and stars for our school tree and class door!
