Welcome to Rowan Class (Year 2)

Spring 2024

Welcome back everyone!


In English, we are starting to read the story ‘Dragon Machine’. The children will be exploring what makes a great adventure narrative and will be writing their own based upon the text. We will then read the book ‘Major Glad, Major Dizzy’ and write a recount from a character’s point of view.


Within maths, we are carrying on working on our fluency with the four operations. The children have made brilliant progress so far and we are going to continue building their confidence with multiplication and division. During this term, the children will learn about length, mass, temperature and pictograms.


Our focus this term is on ‘Animals and their Habitats’ and ‘Plants’. The children will be using scientific enquiry to conduct lots of practical research, including lots of work exploring mini-beasts. They will observe plants growing and understand what they need to remain healthy.


How does the wider world compare with Warrington?

The children will be conducting research about the rainforests across the world. They will learn how important it is to protect them and find out ways we can help. We will be making our own mini rainforests to study the climate and habitats- linking to our work in science.


How did people from the past make a difference?

Building on what we have learned about Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale, we will investigate Edith Cavell and make comparisons between each of their lives. We will look at how nursing has changed over a period of time and use our chronological knowledge to order these events.



It is now an expectation that the children are completing time on TTRockstars at least 3 times a week. When they have completed 10 sessions, and it has been logged at the back of their reading record, the children will become a maths champion and get their name in the newsletter. If you are still having problems with logging on, please do not hesitate to tell Miss Rowlands or Mrs Probulis.

We have been very impressed by how far the children have come with their confidence and fluency within reading. The children are choosing books within the classroom and from the library every week to encourage their reading for pleasure. Thank you for your continued support with home reading.

Just a reminder, that the children need to have their reading books and records in school every day. They should be reading at least 3 times a week at home. They are independently changing their books over, which is closely monitored by our class team. Please speak to us at any time if you would like to discuss your child’s reading.


The children will continue to be taught a spelling rule for the week and will practise their spellings in our morning 4-a-day work, spelling lessons and homework. 

PE kits

PE is every Wednesday and Thursday.  Children need black shorts, our Dallam Primary School blue PE T Shirt and trainers (pumps are no longer worn).

Water bottles

Please make sure that children have a water bottle in school every day.  It is really important that they keep hydrated and having a bottle in school the only way that they can access plenty of water quickly.
