Sycamore Class

Welcome to the Sycamore class page. We are a year 5 class situated in the quad part of the school. Our class in made up of seven boys and two girls. The adults are Fiona, Lisa and Viv.

We have reached the end of our topic – ‘Stargazers’, where we discovered all about the solar system and focused on the astronaut – Tim Peake.

Our new Commando Jo mission and topic focus will be – Sir Ranulph Fiennes. We will discover all about his life and expeditions, whilst we embark on our own adventures during our practical sessions.

We will build our own shelters, using science investigation skills to see which materials work best and look at different places in the world, comparing them to where we live.

We will write explanation texts all about the Sahara Desert and write diary entries all about our expedition.

Our PE sessions are on Thursdays and we will be moving on from invasion games to net/wall games, beginning with badminton.

Underpinning all that we do, we will focus on RESPECT. Aiming to develop the children’s… resilience, empathy, self- awareness, passion, excellence, communication and teamwork.

Keep checking our class page for photographs of what we’re getting up to throughout the term.
