Welcome to Dee

Hi Dee! I hope you are all well, safe and keeping busy at home. Hopefully you have your home work packs with you. If you don't, you can phone the school and arrange to collect one from the office. 


I am updating this week's work and some activity ideas for you to do at home! Also this week, I will put up some new photographs for you to look at.


Have you got your free trial for Twinkl yet? It is completely free to use for 4 weeks, you can download worksheets, activities, workbooks and lots more. Set up a new account here and enter the code 'CVDTWINKLHELPS' when asked.


Have a good week, stay home and stay safe.

Rowan Park's Mini Duke of Edinburgh


Doing this challenge from home will earn you a certificate for your file. You need to pick a challenge for physical, volunteering and skill, e.g.


physical = cycling, walking, yoga, aerobics 

volunteering = doing chores around the house, making phone calls to check in on a family member

skill= cooking, sewing, art


Do each activity once a week and record it. You could take photographs or keep a diary about them. You could even set up your own file and add evidence to it each week. You can email your work in too! Visit the DofE page here to find out more.

Some ideas to help keep calm and relaxed!

Home Learning Ideas


Here are some ideas to continue the learning of your child at home:

  • Take a look at the Rowan Park mini Duke of Edinburgh Award award on the parents tabs
  • Complete the work packs that where sent home with the pupils.
  • Look at books with your child.
  • Look at the the sensory booklet that was sent home with the pupils.
  • Go shopping and involve your child by letting them pick objects and place them in your shopping trolley. Remember social distancing rules.
  • Cook with your child. Talk about the recipe and ingredients. Describe and comment on what you are doing.
  • Sing songs.
  • Encourage your child to communicate in meaning full ways.
  • Play ‘Memory Game’. Place 5-6 objects on a table, name them with your child. Then cover them with a cloth or scarf. Ask your child to close their eyes, so you can remove one object. Check if your child can remember which object is missing.
  • Play ‘What’s in my hand?’ Ask your child to put their hands behind their back and place something in your child’s hands. Ask your child to describe the object (size, shape, feel) before naming the object. Take turns.

Rowan Park mini Duke of Edinburgh class!

Welcome to Dee.


We are a very active class that like to learn in a physical way. We have 5 male pupils aged from 13 to 17. Please take a look at our class page and all the exciting things we are learning this term.


General Information

We ask parents and carers to return the home/school diary each day, as this will enable the class teacher to provide comments and information about your child's day in school. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with me.


Individual Education Plan (IEPs)

This plan sets out educational targets that your child is working on for the term. There is a section in the plan which provides parents and carers with activities or tasks you can do at home to support your child's learning. Plans are updated each term and sent home.


Class Funds

We kindly ask that you send in £2 each week. This contributes to snack and cookery ingredients that we use each week.



P.E. lessons are on Wednesday Morning.

Swimming sessions take place on alternate Wednesday afternoons at the pool in school.

During our P.E. sessions we discuss the importance of keeping fit and the affect it has on our bodies. We look at ways we can keep healthy through a balanced diet and regular exercise.



We do cookery every Thursday morning. Please let us know if your child has any allergies.

Cookery lessons focus on independence skills and learning to cook for ourselves. We appreciate if parents can assist with the cost of buying cookery ingredients by sending in class funds each week.
