A caring Christian family, striving to achieve our best


Welcome to Sycamore


We are a mixed year 4/5 class taught by Miss Taylor, Mrs Huddy and Mrs SC


Our topic for this term is 'Extreme Explorers'


This half-term's learning in Sycamore:

  • In English we will be focusing on science fiction texts. We will begin by reading Tuesday by David Weisner before moving on to read the novel 'The Portal' by Andrew Norriss. We will then write our own version of this novel from a different perspective.
  • In Science our topic is Rocks, Soils and Fossils.
  • In RE we will look at how Easter is celebrated around the world.
  • In History we will be learning all about the Vikings.  
  • In DT the children will be making pneumatic 'moving monsters'. You are invited to come in for one afternoon to join in a DT session with your child on either the 3rd or 4th February.
  • In French we will be learning how to name the main parts of the body.
  • In Music our focus is on the work of the ABBA.

We really hope your child enjoys their time in Sycamore class and do not want anything to prevent that from happening.  Should there be any issues at any point, the classroom door is always open.  Please do not hesitate to contact us– phone, dojo or in person about anything – no matter how small or insignificant it may seem.  Thank you for your support.
