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 Tuesday and Thursday, and we will be swimming on a Tuesday morning after half term.
Our half-termly topic is Revolution, looking at the Victorian Era and the influence it has had on Modern Britain. Children will have the opportunity to dig deeper into the aspects of this era that interest them.
We have a whole school focus on investigation, getting children to ask questions and pose solutions to problems- across the curriculum.
Friday afternoons are given over to acquiring skills, from baking to sewing, science to art in a relaxed environment. Each child will have an opportunity to try every skill.
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.
