Welcome to Super Sycamore!

Hello and welcome to Sycamore Class 2020-2021! We’ve had a really good start to the school year; here are some of the things that have been up to…

Super Sycamore Rap: the children made lots of great suggestions about what our class should be like. We turned this into a rap and are now learning it. It should be stuck in their Reading Journals if you’d like a rendition…

Gambia: our new book that we are studying is set in The Gambia. We have been starting to explore its location in the world and what the different settlements are like there. This links to our topic of Planet Protectors as the book explores plastic waste which we started to use during our art collaging this week… (see rather enthusiastic photo below).

Exploring the continent of Africa whilst developing our atlas skills.

Collaging our rubbish!

In Science, we have started exploring different states of matter and explored particle placement of solids, liquids and gases out in the playground.

In the midst of all our learning, we also took a moment to think about Mary and Walsingham as it was the feast day of Our Lady of Walsingham this Thursday! We reflected on how Mary’s ‘yes’ to God might not have been easy but how it was the right thing to trust God. We then thought of some things that we know are difficult to do but are the RIGHT things to do and wrote them on our stars!

Our stars of the difficult but right things to do…

Homework: we are hoping to start our homework routine in October; watch this space. There are spellings stuck in the back of their Reading Journals for next Thursday and please continue with TTRS!

Hard at work writing persuasive letters about our better bottle designs…




Our school is a thriving Christian community where our children are central to everything that we do. Adults and children enjoy working together to achieve their full potential.
