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.
I hope you all enjoyed a calm and peaceful Easter and are looking forward to the new term in school. Our topic for the first summer term is” Our Local Area.” This topic is Geography based and we will be learning about our local area around school and around our homes and looking at what is on offer there both in terms of human and physical features. We will be writing some persuasive adverts and letters to promote or to improve our local area.
In English we will be looking at some of the books by author Jeannie Baker. They are picture books linked to the local area and community. They focus on how our environment is changing and what we can do about it. We will also be reading a book by Joseph Coelho called “Our Tower.”
In maths we will be finishing off our learning on Fractions and then concentrating on Length and Perimeter, Money, Time, Shape and Statistics.
We will be doing weekly sessions on Mathletics which the children can access at home if they wish to earn more points and work hard towards earning new certificates.
Hopefully, as the weather improves, we are hoping to get out into the school grounds and do some Outdoor Learning, so children will need a set of old clothes and shoes that they don’t mind getting dirty. If they could bring them into school asap that would be great.
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.
