In Sycamore we like to learn creatively
and enjoy working collaboratively

Welcome back to Sycamore Class!

We have got such an exciting term ahead of us. We are studying the Second World War as our theme which is called, 'I'm an evacuee get me out of here!' We will be using the book Goodnight Mister Tom as our class text and will have lots of opportunities to investigate what life was like as a child in WW2 Britain. We will find out how life has changed since that period of history. There will be a trip later on in the term as well as a visit from the Open Box Theatre Company.

There is also a lot of maths that we will be covering and it is a really good opportunity to build on all the good knowledge they have as well as learn new things which will help the children prepare for Year 6.

Our PE days are currently Thursday and Friday although it is helpful if they can have their kits in all week.

Homework is set on a Friday and they will usually have this in their homework books. It needs to be back in school by Wednesday so we can get it marked and ready for Friday. We also have a blog on this website which we can use to share our learning and homework.

Reading is also really important to us in Year 5 so if there are any parents who would be able to come in and hear readers then that would be amazing and please do let me know which times would be best for you.

I am sure that this will be a really positive year for the children in Sycamore Class and am very much looking forward to teaching them and seeing how much they will achieve.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me.
