Welcome to Rowan Class - Year 2 & 3
Hello from Miss Parish & Mrs Kinnair
Monday to Wednesday Miss Parish teaches in Rowan and Thursday & Friday the class have Mrs Kinnair.
Miss Buckmaster and Mrs O'Connell are our class teaching assistants. Mr Moore teaches PE on Monday afternoons, Yoga Jo delivers yoga on a Wednesday and Mrs Freestone takes both year groups for recorders on a Wednesday afternoon.
Due to the lockdown we are having a big focus on maths, literacy and reading but we will catch up with our topic learning through literacy too.
Seesaw is our online learning platform where we were sending all of our learning to the children during the lockdown period and they were sending it back and communicating directly with us. We loved seeing all the learning going on at home! Now we send our weekly learning conversations and any homework. Below is the link to where each child is given an individual login to access...
Summer Term Learning overview for Rowan Class
You will receive the list of statutory spellings for your year group. These are for you to learn throughout the course of the year. We will learn spelling patterns each week in class through our spelling lessons and any spellings that you need to practise some more will be posted on the website each week! See the statutory spelling lists for each year group at the bottom of the page if you would like to do any additional spelling with your child/ren.
In Rowan Class we use Times Tables Rockstars to practise our times tables. Each half term we will test your times tables knowledge and TT Rockstars will work out which ones you need to practise next! You can practise as much as you like at home on this - your login is on your journal - but you have to do at least 20 minutes a week at home on it!
You will have a colour-banded reading book. At school, an adult will hear you read this book at least once a week and will record this in your journal. At the moment, books will only be sent home on a Friday so that you can read over the weekend and they must be returned on a Monday. This means that we can quarantine the books for 72 hours, ready to send them home again the following Friday. You should read each day over the weekend.
We have set reading books for our class on Rising stars:

PE is on Mondays & Fridays. Please make sure that you have the right kit for the weather and come to school wearing it instead of your usual school uniform! You will also have yoga on a Wednesday, but you do not need to come to school in your PE kit for this.
Pencil Cases - due to Covid-19 we will provide you with a pencil case of all the things you will need in class! Please do not bring any pens, pencils, rubbers etc. in from home.
Journals - due to Covid-19 you cannot take these home at the moment.
