Welcome to Rosen Class

Rosen Newletter Term 5 2018


We had a visit from a puppy as part of our science topic Animals including humans.  We found out that the puppy is learning to be part of the pack. The family need to show the dog who is the leader of the pack.  The puppy is fed 3 times a day. The family need to show Ned how to socialise, bringing him in to our class was part of that.  This puppy is a border terrier and comes from the English/Scottish border.

We walked around Eynsford and identified the important buildings. We added them to our maps.  We found 2 churches, 2 pubs, a butchers shop, a general store and an estate agents.  
We also spotted 2 bus stops, a river and a Ford!  When we got back to school we worked in teams and drew our maps on the playground.

Harry Potter Day

We made glasses out of pipe cleaners, first we made a circle, next we joined the arms finally we tried them on. We collected a variety of ingredients in the woods to make potions. We chopped up some mysterious looking purple vegetable.

We created a rhyme:

Hocus Pocus

Playus Turnus


We waved our magic wands and as if by magic we had chocolate…

In Rosen class this term we have been learning about pitch.  We have been singing lots of songs and identifying high and low, telling stories by only using different pitches, practising making echoes in groups and creating musical patterns using the terms high, low and middle. Just ask us to sing you the high, low and middle song, we even know the actions!
