This has been a busy term in Rowan class with lots going on including World Book Day and significant female into school day! All of the children looked amazing in their World Book Day costumes and enjoyed a workshop with one of the writers from Horrible Histories.
We also had a lovely morning with our significant females who helped us to sew our Viking purses, which I think you will agree look great. We created templates, cut out fabric and sewed it together using a running stich. Every purse was unique and beautifully decorated.
Some children have also been taking part in Forest School sessions in the woodland this term. We have set up an area as our ‘base’ where we have lunch and hot chocolate, which is always needed after the walk there! We have tried many new things including making natural shelters, climbing, putting up a tarpaulin and joining sticks together using knots. We are looking forward to continuing with these sessions after half term. s.
In PE, we have been learning to roll, jump and use apparatus. We are confident with a range of jumps including tuck, straddle and pike and are able to do a forward roll and teddy bear roll. We have used these skills to create and perform our own routine, which also include either a hoop or ribbon.
Our maths lessons this term have been very practical as we have been learning about mass, capacity and volume. We have been using the scales to read masses in kilograms and grams. This was very helpful when we made Viking bread as part of our recipe writing journey in literacy. We have also been using the measuring cylinders to show capacities and volumes in litres and millilitres.
