Welcome to Sycamore class page. I will be regularly updating this page with news and information about our current learning.
Sycamore class with start the day at 8:40 and finish the day at 3:10. You will come into school and leave school using the door on the Reception Playground next to Maple class door. You will need to come into school using Gate A (back of school, by the Reception playground). You will need to leave school using Gate B (by the adventure playground, Key Stage 1 playground).
Your child will bring home a new reading book every Monday and Thursday. Please read with them as often as you can, everyday would be brilliant!
Our regular PE sessions on Monday and Friday.
We will do PE outside whenever it is possible. Please ensure your child has suitable outdoor PE kit, including outdoor shoes, in school at all times. PE kits will go home on Fridays to be washed. Children will be unable to borrow spare PE kit.
Now You See Me, Now You Don't
This term we will be comparing the environment of the Scottish Highlands with the savannah area of Kenya. We will look at the habitats that these places provide for several endangered animals that live in them, and think about the positive and negative impact that people can have. In science we will study the life cycles of the red squirrel and Golden Eagle and identify whether the animals we study are herbivores, carnivores or omnivores.
In English our story is called Six Dinner Sid: A Highland Adventure. We will learn to re-tell the story and write some sentences about it. We will look at how to write a setting description and innovate a new story about Sid's adventures in the Kenyan Savannah. In maths we will compare numbers using 'greater than' and 'less than' symbols and continue to practise correct number formation. In order to explore addition and subtraction we will learn about 'fact families' using numbers up to ten and begin to learn important number bonds.
