Welcome to Sycamore!

Welcome to Sycamore!


We have had a super start to the term in Sycamore, and I have really enjoyed getting to know my new class. We have dived straight into our new topics, and I have been thrilled to see how the children have settled in and have already shown me what hard workers they are.


Here are some of the activities we have already enjoyed…


In English we have learnt our model text ‘Elf Road’, and have begun to think about how we can write effective descriptions in exciting portal stories.


In History we have gone back in time all the way to Ancient Egypt! We have reminded ourselves how a timeline works when we go back as far as 7000BC, and have looked at how we know about Ancient Egypt from what they left behind for us to learn from. This is such an interesting and exciting topic which I know the children will really enjoy. Our Art this term is also based on our History topic so look out for pictures on the website of our Egyptian related art work. We have already started by learning how to blend paints to create an Egyptian sunset, with silhouettes of the pyramids for a really striking effect.


In Music we are enjoying the music of ABBA, in French we will be ‘Going Shopping’ and in RE we will be considering how murtis help Hindus understand God.


A reminder that until further notice our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday, we have spelling tests on a Monday and Times Table tests on a Friday (with practices of both spellings and times tables throughout the week).


Keep working hard and being the best you can be, Sycamore!
