Our Year 3 & 4 children are in Elder Class taught by Ms Powis, Miss Preece, Mrs Davies & Mrs Thomas.
Welcome to Rowan class, you may be wondering why are we called this? We chose this particular tree name because there is a beautiful Rowan tree growing in the corner of our adventure playground. It is a tree steeped in history and mythology. Rowan comes from the old Norse word for tree-'Raun.' It is said that people used to put rowan sprigs in their houses for protection and sailors took it on board ships to ensure safe journeys!
This term we are travelling back in time to when the Romans landed in Britain. We will study the impact of the Roman Empire on Britain, its legacy and what it might have been like to live in Britain under Roman occupation. We are so lucky to be living in an area full of archealogical evidence of the Romans living here. In November we are visiting the Corinium Museum and Chedworth Roman Villa.
