Sycamore Class

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

Autumn 2019:

Reading

In Whole Class Reading lessons we will be exploring new vocabulary in a variety of texts including non-fiction, narrative and poetry. We will be using the Reading Vipers to interrogate the texts further.

In our topic lessons we will be reading Norse Myths.

Writing

In our English lessons, this term, we will be focusing on writing stories. Our skills focuses will include: creating a setting, including a character description, dialogue adding and developing atmosphere.

In our topic lessons we will be writing poetry in the form of a ‘Kenning’ and a story or diary entry based on living in Anglo Saxon times.

Maths

In Maths lessons we will be focusing on place value, rounding, and using negative numbers in context. We will then move onto revising mental and written strategies for the four operations.

In our topic lessons we will be converting measurements to find distances travelled by the Vikings, investigating negative numbers by researching the temperatures of countries around the World, looking at symmetry and using protractors to create Anglo Saxon brooch designs.
