Sycamore Class

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

Autumn 2021:

Reading

In Reading, we will be developing our reading skills (VIPERS) through a variety of text types.

Our first class reader is ‘The 1000 Year Old Boy’.

Writing

In our English lessons this term, we are using the book ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’ to explore our story writing.

We will focus on creating effective setting descriptions. Following this, we will be developing our skills at hooking the reader with openings and then write accurate dialogues that convey character and add to the action. We are also exploring poetry to expand our use of literacy language.

Maths

In Maths, we are working on place value in numbers up to 10 million and recognizing numbers represented in different ways. We will then use this understanding to order, compare and round numbers. After this, we will move on to building on our understanding of negative numbers and applying this understanding when solving problems including calculating intervals. We will then move onto using written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
