Sycamore Class 2016-2017
During math's week, we applied our math's skills in a cross-curricular approached. Here is a list of some of the things we got up to:
* Create timelines in science:
* Went orienteering for our PE lesson: and
* Attempted Sissa's Reward.
Last week, we all went to Devizes School for fun and games with orienteering. The children were placed in groups of 2 or 3 and had to find their individual routes. To check their times, they used an electronic tag to check- in at different posts.
Last week, we went to Devizes School for a science event. Children demonstrated a range of scientific investigations and we won a certificate!
All the children's behaviour was impeccable! They represented the school beautifully.
What a super start for Sycamore!
I am really pleased with the mature approach sycamore have had to returning to school this term. All the children have settled in well and are working hard towards the expectations of year five.
During maths this term we have been focusing on place value, time and shape. The children have been using lots of reasoning skills to be able to solve problems related to their learning. I am really impressed with the brilliant mathematicians within the class!
This term has been filled with lots of fantastic learning for sycamore class. The children have been busy getting involved in our topic of the Mayans. They have written fantastic fantasy stories about going into a household appliance and suddenly finding themselves in a Mayan village. They have also been working on a great Mayan dance. The dance is focusing on Mayan villagers going down to the water. The children have been busy in art making masks to wear for their dance.
We hope to be able to share our Mayan Mania with you very soon!
