Sycamore: Year 6
Welcome to Sycamore Class - Year 6 - taught by Ms Coleman and Mrs Pudsey.
In year 6, our learning is purposeful, creative and cross-curricular. We link our learning to our termly topic and look for opportunities to “learn by doing!”. As we are at the top of the school, many of the year 6 students take on additional responsibilities, for example, we have library monitors and assembly monitors. Year 6 pupils are also our House Captains and run our School Parliament.
Term 4 update
The children have started Term 4 full of resilience and determination as we have completed Assessment Week with heads held high and full of pride. In their role at top of the school they rose to the occasion. Well done Sycamore!
Our Maths topic has started with converting fractions to percentages and now using our multiplication and division knowledge to find percentages of amounts. We will then more onto using BODMAS to understand the order of operations followed by converting different units of measurements. There are lots of revision sessions happening which are proving to be enlightening and productive.
Our writing is covering a rather dark version of Hansel and Gretel by Neil Gaiman. The children will no doubt enjoy the lesson that will require them to immerse themselves in the smells and tastes of chocolate……. And hopefully it will produce some wonderfully descriptive words! Fingers crossed.
Our Spring music concert is taking place on 28th March at 2pm. Sycamore class have proved to be truly fantastic singers and musicians so please put the date in your diary. Following this we are holding a SATS information meeting, where we will be giving more details about the types of questions, the format for the week and how we at school, together with home, can support your child. Please do make every effort to attend.
PE continues to take place on a Tuesday but please do have PE kits in school all week.
