Welcome to Sycamores. There are 2 members of staff in Sycamores this year. Miss Harrison is the class teacher and Mrs Mosayebi is the Teaching Assistant.
Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you all enjoyed a calm and peaceful Christmas and are looking forward to the new term in school. Our first topic for the Spring term is “Invasions”. This topic is a history based one and we will be learning about “What the Romans Did for Us” During this topic we will be finding out all about the Roman’s legacy and the effect that is still has on our lives today. We will be enjoying some Drama work where we will go back in time to get a taste of what life was like in Roman times. We will get to enjoy a Roman banquet!
In English we will be reading historical stories linked to our topic. The first of which will be Escape to Pompeii by Christina Balit. We will be finding out about what happened when Mount Vesuvius erupted.
In Maths we will be concentrating on Multiplication and Division. It is always really helpful to practise these at home with your child as it will make life easier if they already know them. We will be doing weekly sessions on Mathletics which the children can access from home if they wish to earn more points and work hard towards earning new certificates.
Every Friday we will be taking part in Music sessions in the hall with Mr Flase who will be teaching us about rhythm, duration, tempo and how to begin to understand musical notation. And of course we will be singing our hearts out.
In Science we will be learning about the different states of matter and about how materials can change when introduced to different temperatures.
