Sycamore need to wear their PE uniforms to school on Wednesdays and Thursdays. If there are any other occasions, a message will be send via text.

It may be that Sycamore will have an extra PE slot with Bee Active on a Monday on a regular basis.


At the start of each week, Sycamore children are given a sheet containing all the homework for the week. It contains Daily Calculations (including TT Rockstars), spellings, expectations for daily reading (3 times a week for 20 minutes and signed by an adult) and a small weekly writing task. Each child has the login information for TT Rockstars in the front of their Daily Calculation book.


The year so far....

We did our class assembly about our RE topic (creation stories):

In art, we used charcoal to make our own drawings in the style of cave paintings:

In D&T, we have made slingshot cars.

With Year 6, we learned to play ChopChop and took part in a competition.

In science, we have learned about electricity, and we used our knowledge of conductors, insulators and circuits to make our own switches.

We have had lots of visitors from our local high school (STB). In our science lesson, we learned about density.
