Welcome to Sycamore Class
We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas holiday and are feeling refreshed ready for a new year.
For your information, Mrs Pallister will be teaching the children in the mornings, with the afternoons remaining the same as in the Autumn Term.
This term our topics will be
- ‘World War II’ in History
- ‘Climate Zones’ in Geography
- ‘Evolution and Inheritance’ and ‘Earth and Space’ in Science
- 'Does the community of the Mosque help Muslims to lead better lives?' and then, 'Is the Resurrection important to Christians?' in RE.
- 'Beneath the Surface' and 'Collage' in Art
PE will take place on Wednesdays. Please make sure that they have their PE kit in school. Their kit can be left at school until the end of the half term as they may need it for other activities. Children can have a grey tracksuit to wear for outside games.
Alongside daily reading, the children will still have activities to complete in their ‘Learning Journal’. Homework will be sent out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.
The children should be using TTRockstars regularly at home; times tables are an incredibly important skill to support their computation in many areas of Mathematics.
The children should be writing their independent reading in their reading journal every time they read. The reading journals are collected and checked on Mondays.
Parent consultations will take place after half term. If you have any concerns before this date, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch through the office.
