Welcome to Rowan Class

Welcome to 2018-19

Den Day 2019

What a fun packed day, building dens, cooking on campfires and paddling in the stream. Thank you to everyone who helped make the day so enjoyable for all the children. Have a look at the photos below...


Our class ducklings have hatched. The eldest had her first swim today and the children started performing Ducks Ditty. A fabulous moment captured on video. See below.

Duck's Ditty by Kenneth Grahame

This term we are learning 'Duck's Ditty' to perform.

Here are the words below:


By Kenneth Grahame

All along the backwater, 
Through the rushes tall, 
Ducks are a-dabbling, 
Up tails all!

Ducks' tails, drakes' tails, 
Yellow feet a-quiver, 
Yellow bills all out of sight 
Busy in the river!

Slushy green undergrowth 
Where the roach swim-- 
Here we keep our larder, 
Cool and full and dim.

Everyone for what he likes! 
WE like to be 
Heads down, tails up, 
Dabbling free!

High in the blue above 
Swifts whirl and call-- 
WE are down a-dabbling 
Up tails all!

Winnie the Pooh Week

18th-25th March 2019

What a fantastic week we had in Rowan Class celebrating Winnie the Pooh and friends. We wrote adventure stories. We drew our own pictures to match famous quotes. We made models of the characters and even had an adventure into the 100 acre wood! At the end of the week we had a teddy bears picnic and invited our parents into the new school hall to celebrate our learning. Have a look at our pictures to show what fun we had!

World Book Day in Rowan

We had fun doing lots of book related activities with all the infant teachers in the morning and then spent the afternoon sharing stories, making bunting and designing our book covers. We all looked super dressed as fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters. We even had hot chocolate in the afternoon!

Food Week

25th Feb- 1st March

We had a fantastic Food Week in Rowan Class - cooking and dancing with Prags, thinking about taste and texture of food, making fraction pizzas, weighing vegetables, making leek and potato soup, learning how to cut carefully, some fabulous artwork drawing cherries, learning about food groups in science, going to a food science fair in Silver Birch, writing fruit riddles and even making igloos out of ice cubes!

The greatest treasure
