Sycamore Class – Year 5/6
Welcome to Sycamore Class.
Welcome back Year 5, 6 and all of our parents and carers. It has been so lovely getting to know you all during the start of this Autumn term, albeit slightly differently to what we are used to.
It is a pleasure to introduce myself as Sycamore Class’ new teacher and I really look forward to getting to know you and your children more as the term progresses.
We are excited to be reading ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ as our class reader. Please be sure to ask your child about their thoughts on this book and the issues discussed. It has been lovely to hear all of the suggestions about what we could do to help Refugees in the UK and I hope as our year goes on, we will be able to raise awareness about causes that interest our class.
Whilst our lessons have resumed normality in the classroom, it is really important we are still looking after our mental and physical well-being. We have loved getting involved in the ‘Golden Mile’ in Sycamore Class, we have been setting mini targets and goals to try and reach each time. Allowing us some time to reflect and be calm, we continue to work alongside the Jigsaw framework which incorporates discussion, calming techniques and tips to help us in our day-to-day life.
Odd Socks Day/ Anti-Bullying Week 2020
We have been celebrating what makes us special, unique and amazing! Odd Socks Day 2020 has been a lovely way to share our interests, hobbies and unique qualities! We are creating a class display of ‘odd socks’ to remind us all year how lucky we are to be one of a kind . Anti-Bullying Week allowed us to explore what characteristics we can display and show in order to be kind friends and how we can ensure everyone in our class feels safe and happy at school.
Remembrance Day 2020
We have been busy writing, learning and performing poems reflecting on Remembrance Day and what this day means.
Check out our poems here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QGRKVyysNY
Spellings will be sent home on a Monday, these will be given to your child and are also on our Class Dojo page. The children will be tested on these words on a Friday.
You have a copy of your TT Rockstar login and please make sure that you are practising these as often as possible!
Whilst we can’t enjoy our whole class library sessions just yet, please make sure you are reading 5 times a week. We will be celebrating our Star Readers in class so get reading!
