As part of Science week Rowan class were very lucky to be visited by Mr Tremain and Mr Chidgey from Premier Sport.


They spoke to us all about the 4 key principles to keep healthy

  • Eat well
  • Drink well
  • Sleep well
  • Move well

The children learnt so much whilst having lots of fun and getting to try lots of delicious fruit and vegetables.

Explorer Day


Rowan class had a fantastic morning when we were visited by Eddie The Explorer who took us on an expedition to Antartica.

Inter-Faith Day 18.1.18


Rowan had a wonderful day for Inter-Faith day.  We were researching 'why light is such an important symbol?'


We looked at the story of Rama and Sita from the Hindu religion and learnt all about Diwali the Festival of Lights.  The children had a fantastic time, designing and creating lanterns, colouring Rangoli patterns and making sweets.

After fastening their seatbelts, Beech and Rowan classes "jetted" off to Kenya for the day.  They then exchanged the plane for minibuses to go on a "virtual safari". After that they split into groups to complete four different activities.  They made a Swahili dictionary and learned how to sing "Heads, shoulders, knees and toes' in Swahili as well as learning how to dance in a traditional African way.  Next they carved animals out of soap to create their own version of a Kenyan soapstone sculpture. After that they cooked some traditional Kenyan foods: Ugali and fried bananas. The fried bananas sprinkled with sugar and nutmeg were very popular! Finally they played some African games including "Shisimba" (similar to noughts and crosses) as well as Jenga which takes its name from the Swahili word for "build".

Year 2 Sports Festival
