Year R - Rowan Tree Class

Welcome to Rowan Tree Class,

Dear Parents,  

It has been a great pleasure to meet and greet all children in Rowan Tree Class. The children have settled well and enjoyed exploring their new classroom and school environment both inside and out.  The children have adopted new routines quickly such as washing hands and lining up. Changing for PE has been challenging for some children but they are already making super progress in developing their independence. We are very proud of all the children and the progress they have already made and are excited about all the growing, learning and exploring that we will be doing this year. 


Our topical focus this half term is ‘Wonderful Me’. The children have engaged well in their child initiated and adult led learning. They have participated actively in music with Mrs Maxey and have enjoyed going to the hall for PE. This term the children will engage in daily phonics, Forest School and will be heading to the Abbey for the Harvest Service. 


As our Habits of Mind Puppet this half term is Gabo the Curiosity Monkey, we are encouraging the children to ask lots of questions and to develop their own levels of curiosity and questioning skills. 


We are really looking forward to an exciting year ahead and all the new challenges that this may bring along the way.

Miss Hobbs, Mrs McRobert and the Early Years Team
