Rowan Class

Welcome to our Rowan Class page. This is where we will share our news and topics for the school year.

Autumn 2020:


During Whole Class Guided Reading we will look at developing our retrieval, prediction, sequencing, inference, explanation and vocabulary skills. We shall be focusing on Letters from The Lighthouse for our class reader and then isolated texts for guided reading.


Our English lessons will consist of looking closely at recounts and Newspaper reports. Our grammar work and skills will focus around sentence structures: - simple sentences, compound sentences, subordinate clause sentences with correct use of commas, complex sentences with relative clauses and the use of commas with fronted adverbial phrases. In addition to this, we shall be looking at paragraph construction.

There will be a vocabulary session each day and grammar will also include revision of word classes. Spelling and Handwriting will also form part of our curriculum.


In maths, we shall be focusing on the place value of numbers to 1,000,000 – comparing, ordering and rounding these numbers. We shall also be looking at Roman numerals and negative numbers and problem solving.

Following this, our focus will be addition and subtraction, inverse operations, estimating and again problem solving.
