Welcome to Sycamore!
From Miss Ibrahim and Mrs Knaggs

It has been a busy conclusion to our first half term! The first few weeks saw the pupils taking to the polls to vote for their pupil council representative - it was fantastic to hear passionate and well thought-out speeches and a great opportunity for the children to learn more about the democratic process of voting. Congratulations to Mani, our school councillor and Kit, our eco- councillor and a special well done to all those who participated.
Our first term also saw us learn more about Ancient Egypt in History. In addition to a visit to the Natural History Museum in Eton and learning about the importance of the River Nile, the Mummification process and Ancient Egyptian daily life the children also had a go at making their very own Shadufs.
As we enter our new half term we are excited to have started our 'Poem of the Day'. Speaking and listening are an important part of the curriculum and the opportunity to learn and perform a piece of poetry is a fantastic way of developing public speaking skills. We've had a great start from Naada and Emma and we look forward to hearing more of the children performing a poem to the class as we move through the term.
Thank you to the adults at home for your continued support with daily reading, spelling and maths homework,
Miss Ibrahim and Mrs Knaggs.
