Sycamore Class

Welcome to our Sycamore Class page. This is where we will share our news and topics for the school year.

Autumn 2020:


In whole class reading sessions we will be exploring new vocabulary in a variety of texts including non-fiction, narrative and poetry.

Our class book for this half term is ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’ by Emma Carroll. This will be followed by ‘My Secret Diary by Flossie Albright’ written by Marcia Williams, which both link to our WW2 topic.


In our English lessons this term we will be focusing on writing recounts, in particular newspaper reports.

In our topic lessons we will be writing recounts in the form of diary entries, poetry and stories.


In maths we will be focusing on place value and consolidation of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
