Year 3 – Rowan Class

Welcome to Rowan Class!

Our class is taught by Miss Thomas, who is supported by teaching assistant Miss Holding.

We are a great class who love learning. We like to challenge ourselves on a daily basis and we are also a bit competitive too, especially in Sports with Mr Hounsell on a Wednesday afternoon!


Our exciting topic this half term is all about the famous explorer Ernest Shackleton and his quest to cross Antarctica. We have been learning about where Antarctica is and the harsh conditions and landscape there. We’ve been reading ‘Trapped by Ice’ to help us to understand the peril adventure they took in 1914. We even visited Antarctica using VR headsets and spotted some seals!


In maths this half term we have been learning about multiplication and division, focusing on the 4 and 8 times tables. We’re becoming quick at the re-call of the facts now! We’re going to be using times table rock stars soon so we can practice them.


We enjoy learning outside the classroom too. On Tuesdays we are extremely lucky and really enjoy working with Mrs Allen-Brown to improve our musical skills. On Wednesdays we take part in sports activities with Mr Hounsell. Mr Thomas also teaches us how to speak Spanish.


Children will also continue to follow the school’s Read Write Inc. and NNS programmes to support their phonics and SPAG development.

Rowan class is a lovely place to be and full of love, laughter and learning. Feel free to visit anytime!
