Autumn term in Rowan class - here's what we are learning about!

This half-term, our learning is going to be linked to a lovely story called 'The Jolly Postman', which is written by Janet & Allan Ahlberg.  Both Miss Rogers and Miss Barker absolutely love this story smiley

We will also be getting ready for Christmas.  We are going to be very busy practising for our nativity concert, which this year will be 'The Grumpy Sheep'.

We are going to be doing lots of learning about communication.  In History, we will be looking at different methods of communication from the past, such as telegrams and Morse code.  In Computing, we will be looking at modern communication via email, and learning how to stay safe online.

In Geography, we are going to be learning about maps and plans, and looking at how to plot a route to keep the Jolly Postman safe.  In Science, we will be studying the properties of different materials and thinking about which one would make the best raincoat to keep the Jolly Postman warm and dry in the wintery weather.
