Welcome to Sycamore Class!
Our topic this term is 'Towers, Tunnels and Turrets'. We will be developing our skills and knowledge across a range of subjects as we learn lots about castles. This will include a visit to Oxford Castle, making information books, composing castle music and designing and making our own model castles. We will also write recounts and fairly tales in English and in RE, we will be learning about Jewish Passover. In maths, we will be consolidating our understanding of place value, addition and subtraction, as well as developing our skills in reasoning and problem solving.
General information about Sycamore Class
The Sycamore class teachers are Dr Paynter and Mrs Drabble. Mrs Drabble teaches the class on Mondays and Tuesdays and Dr Paynter teaches from Wednesday to Friday. Dr Paynter is taking some parental leave this term so the class will be taught by Miss Williams on his usual days. We also have other adults working in class to support the children throughout the week.
If you have any queries or concerns, please come and see us at parent's evening or book a date with Mrs Scaysbrook in the office to meet with us after school.
The children work daily on spelling patterns in school. We send home a list of words each Wednesday for you to practise at home in time for our weekly test on Monday.
Thank you for all your support.
Dr Paynter and Mrs Drabble
