Class 3 Rowan - Y3/4: Miss Halle

Summer term 2020/2021 Survival


With our topic theme of 'Survival', this term we will be learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age within the UK. We will be kicking off our topic with a Stone Age day where the children will get the chance to understand what we mean by the Stone Age and handle a range of Stone Age and Bronze Age artefacts. We will be linking our topic to Art where we will be trying to recreate our own cave paintings. 

 In science, we will be continuing to investigate magnets, before moving onto the reproduction of plants. Within our topic, we will be looking at seed dispersal and the importance of pollination. 

Spring 2 Term 2020/2021  Rivers

Welcome back to school Rowan class!  We have had a really good first week back to school following the lockdown period.  The children have been very keen to return to learning and play with their friends in our bubble.  


This term, we are continuing to learn about Rivers and forces.  

Back to school !!!


It has been a very exciting first week welcoming everybody back to school. On day one all children were greeted with balloons at the gates, and then we all had a lovely class breakfast where we could all catch up.  It has been fantastic to see how excited all the children have been to get back into school and see all their friends.


We hope this will be a very exciting term. We are doing football and gymnastics in P.E, as well as looking at the topic of Rivers where many students are already demonstrating their fantastic knowledge. 


I hope to have a fantastic few weeks before Easter and we are all so proud of what the children have done at home. 

Egg Discovery!!

Monday morning Mrs Dickson, Miss Halle and Mrs Wyatt spotted some strange creatures roaming our field. Lower School went to investigate what the creatures might have been doing...

After a thorough investigation of the school field we found eggs! After some careful examination and our powers of deduction, we came to the conclusion that these are dragon eggs!

Autumn 1 2020/2021 Ancient Egypt


We begin the new academic year with our history based Ancient Egypt project.  We will be learning about the the Ancient Egyptians and how ancient civilisations lived and how they have influenced our modern world. 

Mystery in Lower School


Over the weekend, a tunnel appeared in the Lower School area. 

We set the children off being detectives to investigate what happened in Lower School. Children had to search for clues and gather evidence to determine what catastrophe had happened. A number of children also interrogated several staff members who they believed were suspects.

Autumn Term Topic: Ancient Egypt


So far this term we have written questions that we want to know about ancient Egypt. By the end of the term we will be able to answer our questions.

Some examples:

Why were cats so important?

How did they go to the toilet?

How long did Tutankhamun live?

What did their houses look life?


The topic has included lots of art. We have made: mummified cats by paper weaving; collars which were worn by rich Egyptians; amulets out of salt dough and are starting to plan our own semi abstract compositions.


Ancient Egyptian Day September 2016

Congratulations to all the lower school children who make such a fantastic effort at dressing up.  You all looked fabulous.  Our first activity was to create a lucky amulet out of salt dough.  Our designs included hieroglyphics or other lucky charms such as scarab beetles, ankh and cats. In the afternoon the children created their Egyptian collars and had a treat of ice cream and Egyptian Khoshaf sauce.


Pictures to follow.
