Welcome to Sycamore Class
We hope you all had a fantastic summer break and are feeling refreshed and ready for the new academic year.
This term, Miss Pallister will continue to teach the children Maths and English in the mornings, and will additionally teach RE and PSHE on Friday afternoons. The other afternoons will remain the same as in the Summer Term.
This term our topics will be
- 'The Maya' in History
- ‘Amazing Americas’ in Geography
- ‘Properties of Materials’ in Science
- 'Can we know what God is like?' and 'Is God made Man' a good way to understand the Christmas story?' in RE
- 'South American Influences' in Art and bag making in DT
PE will take place on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make sure that children have their PE kits 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 have weekly activities to complete in their homework books. Homework will be sent out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.
The children should be using TT Rockstars regularly at home; times tables are an incredibly important skill to support their computation in many areas of Mathematics.
The children should record 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.
