Sycamore Class

Welcome to Sycamore Class.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Sycamore class, here you will meet all our wonderful Year 5 and 6 children.

Each new academic year provides opportunities for: growing independence and responsibility, initiative and motivation, freedom and developing self-esteem, self-awareness and knowledge. Pupils will experience values such as perseverance, tolerance, teamwork and trust.

As each pupil progresses throughout their school-life journey growing demands are placed upon them. Each child is encouraged to develop a broad range of creative skills which will help them in achieving academic success. We help them to grow into confident, independent learners who love coming to school.

This year we are developing a new project based learning approach, which will allow all children more opportunities to develop and utilise those core skills which they learn through English and Maths. Our first topic will be based about World War 1 and then immediately after the first half-tem we will move into World War 2. The big question which we will be exploring will be “What makes a survivor?” We will be using I was there... and War Horse as our class novel study and are very much looking forward to going to see War Horse at the theatre!

As always, if you have any concerns or wish to contact Mrs Garnett about your child then you will find her the playground at the beginning and end of each day or just phone into the office and we will return your call the same day.
