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.
We also now have a school subscription to Times-tables RockStars, an on-line platform to help support fluency in mathematics. All children have an individual log-in for this site which is also stuck in their Diary.
PE is on a Tuesday and Thursday, we will be practicing athletics skills and playing rounders and football, there are a few tournaments organised by the PE department during this term.
Please ensure you send your children with an appropriate PE kit - applying sun cream and making sure they have water bottles is essential. Please also ensure they have a pair of trainers (not plimsolls) for when we teach PE on the field, these shoes must be separate from their every day school shoes as they can get wet and muddy. Thank you.
In the lead up our statutory assessments- which take place on the week beginning May 14th-we will be following a programme of revision of work covered so far this year. You will find that the homework timetable has changed slightly and that there will be daily tasks rather than weekly ones.
Regular topic-based learning will resume after half term, please watch this space for details of "Gallery Rebels".
If you would like to help prepare your child for the statutory tests in 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.
Many thanks for your continued support.
