Recently in Rowan...

 

Binary Code!

As part of our History topic, we learnt about the works of Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace. At first, I think we found the idea of binary quite confusing but, after putting it into practice, we certainly had some fun!

 Trip to 'We The Curious' 

Rowan Class have dived into this term's topic theme 'Inventions and Discoveries' with a fantastic trip to We The Curious. We had an amazing day exploring the science museum and participating in a Lego Robotics workshop! 

 Science - circuits

Our new unit in science is electricity, so we have got out the electrical equipment and built circuits to enhance our understanding of how they work.

 Day of the Dead

For our topic finale, we decided to dress up to the theme of Mexico's 'Day of the Dead'. This involved lots of bright colours and fancy constumes. Well done to everyone's efforts with their costumes; they were all terrific! 

 PE - Circuit training

Indoor PE has been a new challenge for us in Rowan Class, putting our fitness to the test with circuit training sessions. Mr Bestwick's circuit classes are hard work but we have still enjoyed the challenges!

 PE - Ultimate Frisbee

Our PE focus for Outdoor sessions this term was Frisbee skills leading into games of Ultimate Frisbee. For many of Rowan Class, this has become a new favourite!

 Residential Trip to Charterhouse

Year 6 had a fantastic week before the October half term on our residential trip to the Charterhouse Outdoor Activity Centre. Lots of fun was had by all and I'm sure everyone came back with many stories and new achievements to share.

Mexican Dance

Linked to our Mexico theme this term, Rowan Class have had an energetic Mexican Dance Workshop. 

 Classification

Recently, we have been taxonomists, classifying animals based on their characteristics; a complicated task but one that was very successful when we worked together.

 Mexican Food

To start our Mexico Topic, we tasted food that originated from Mexico! Thinking about the appearance and taste of the food, we then designed our own Taco or Tortilla Wrap. It is safe to say that we found some of the ingredients a bit spicy!
