Children in years 3 and 4 work together in Rowan Room. This year we have 20 children in our class - 13 in year 3 and 7 in year 4. Our teacher is Mrs Surgett and the teaching assistant who helps us during the morning is Mrs Moore. 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 regularly take part in creative cross-curricular topic learning such as our Anglo-Saxon, Ancient Egyptians and World War 2 topics. We like to take our learning outdoors into the school grounds and our class garden as often as we can.
Welcome to Key Stage 2 - Rowan Class
Some of us also take part in an annual residential trip - last year we visited Grafham Water and had an amazing time.
We have Physical Education lessons twice a week, including lessons with PE Specialist teachers. Year 4 children also take part in ‘Young Leaders’ PE training, culminating in a whole school games afternoon which they create and then lead. They are training to organize and run lunchtime, ‘Be Fit Be Healthy, clubs for younger children in the school. Children can take part in inter-school sports tournaments throughout the year.

We enjoy regular trips out of school, and welcome visitors into class to further our learning. Last year we visited Celtic Harmony Stone Age Village during our Stone Age to Iron Age topic learning, we visited the Discovery Centre at Stockwood Park in Luton to continue our learning about the Ancient Romans and we had the opportunity to visit the Sikh Gurdwara in Milton Keynes.
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 ukulele during the spring term. We also have a regular weekly French lesson.
Our learning logs which contain a homework project 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 and mental maths facts to learn each week.
