Children in years 3 and 4 work together in Rowan Room. This year we have 20 children in our class - 12 in year 3 and 8 in year 4. Our teacher is Mrs Surgett and teaching assistants who help us in the day are Mrs Moore, Mrs Fullwood and Mrs Young. We are very lucky to have volunteers who regularly come into school to help us with our learning.
Every morning we enjoy English and Maths lessons. Other subjects are usually taught in the afternoons, although we often take part in cross-curricular topic learning such as our Anglo Saxon, World War 2 and Ancient Egypt topics. We like to take our learning outdoors into the school grounds and our class garden as often as we can.
Welcome to Year 3 and Year 4Rowan Room
We enjoy regular trips out of school, and welcome visitors into class to further our learning. Last year we visited Bradwell Abbey and Bancroft Villa in Milton Keynes to learn all about the Romans, we enjoyed our first visit to the Sikh Gurdwara and became talented artists after visiting the Cecil Higgins Museum to study portraits. Some of us also take part in an annual residential trip to Grafham Water in the Spring Term.
We have PE lessons twice a week, including a lesson with Future Games PE Specialist teachers on Friday afternoon. Year 4 children also take part in ‘Young Leaders’ PE training, culminating in a whole school games afternoon which they create and then lead. Children can take part in inter-school sports tournaments throughout the year.
Visiting Music Specialist teachers provide choral teaching in preparation for a concert at The Grove Theatre in Dunstable during the summer term and instrumental coaching such as the ocarina and the ukulele. We also have a regular weekly French lesson.
Our learning logs which contain a homework project and mental maths targets are given out on a Friday and should be handed in the following Wednesday. We are encouraged to read at home at least four times a week and have a list of spellings to learn each week.
