Sycamore Class

Hello Sycamore Class,


We hope you had a restful Easter break!

We’ve had a fantastic start to the Summer Term in our class. It’s been lovely having you all back in school full time and we’ve been able to catch up with lots of learning.

The class team are really proud of all of your achievements since September, you have all worked really hard both in class on your learning and outside of the classroom.

This half term our topic is ‘Earthquakes and Volcanoes’. Lots of our learning will be focussed around this topic and we hope you find it both interesting and engaging.

During our English sessions we will be writing diary entries from the point of view of a child who’s survived a deadly earthquake. In Maths we will start the term by recapping some place value, addition and subtraction before moving on to fractions and shape. For our Art lessons, we will be working on a project based around volcano art where we will explore different materials and how the use of colour can impact feelings. Ann will lead PSHE and RE this half term where she will be touching on protective behaviours and start to prepare the children for transitions to their new schools.

We’re also looking forward to our residential trip to Condover. All being well, this trip will go ahead will be a positive experience for all those children who choose to join us.

We encourage you to read as often as you can at home and practise those important times tables.

Please could we ask that you send your child to school with a sun hat or cap on those days when the weather is going to be warm and sunny. We will be spending more time outside this half term with our outdoor learning with Chuck on a Thursday and PE on Friday mornings.

If you have any questions or queries, don’t hesitate to contact us or phone us on the school phone number. /

Lizzie, Ann and Viv
