Welcome to Rowan


We are a class of Year 3 pupils, in total there are 27 pupils.


Miss Richards is our class teacher. We're really lucky because we also get to work with Miss Weatherall, Mrs Cave and Mrs Ellis throughout the week.



Summer Term

During the Summer Term, our topic will be all about Fairtrade.

We will be learning what Fairtrade is and how we can help farmers who grow fruits, flowers and other products.

In Science, we will be learning all about plants and animals. This includes labelling plants and learning about the functions of plants and what conditions they grow best in.


Chocolatiers from Chesterfield will be visiting us during our topic. They will help us learn about chocolate, which includes the history and science behind it, and they will tell us more about Fairtrade.
