Our Class Teacher is Miss Shepherd
Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Evans and Mrs Rasel
We are focussing on increased independence with a push on organisational skills and time management to prepare us for secondary school. With that in mind, children must make sure they are responsible for bringing their PE kit, reading Diary and reading book to school each day. Diaries are checked regularly by Sycamore staff so this is a good way to communicate between home and school.
Homework will be set on a Friday and is due for completion by the following Wednesday. Weekly homework tasks will be written in Diaries and on this class page. Routine homework will be spellings to learn based on the requirements set for Y6, an on-line Grammar test (SPaG.com) and a maths task. We have an in-school homework club on a Wednesday lunch-time for those who struggle to complete homework on time. Your child's SPaG.com password is on a sticker in their Diary.
PE is on a Thursday, and we will be swimming on a Tuesday morning until half term.
As the weather is changing, please ensure you send your children with an appropriate PE kit - long jogging bottoms and hoodies as it gets colder. Please ensure they also have a pair of trainers, not plimsolls for when we teach PE on the field. Thank you!
A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover!
Our half-termly topic is A Child's War, which is focussing on the first and second World Wars and the lasting effects on modern day Britain.
We will be planning, building and evaluating a Spitfire, learning and writing the diary of Anne Frank and learning to empathise with different people.
We have a whole school focus on investigation, getting children to ask questions and pose solutions to problems- across the curriculum.
If you would like to help prepare your child for the statutory tests next May then we have attached resources to help you on this page. If you have any questions or would like a chat then please contact school, we would be happy to help.
We are looking forward to a wonderful year.
