Sycamore - Year 5

Welcome to Sycamore Class!

This term our topic is Extreme Environments.  We will be exploring space as well as finding out about the different environments we might find on Earth.  To see what we're up to this term, click on Term 3 or Term 4 below. 


Our PE days are usually Monday and Friday, but please make sure you have PE kit in school every day in case this changes, and make sure you've got warm clothes in your PE kit in case we are going outside. 


Homework will usually come home on Thursday to be returned by Wednesday.  We are now using Spelling Shed for our spelling homework, and the children all have their own login details for this.  The children also have logins for Times Table Rockstars to practise their times tables and we expect them to read regularly at home too.


If you have any questions or anything you would like to talk about, either pop in at the end of the day or phone the office.


We were visited by a fire fighter, who talked to us about fire safety at home and showed us the protective clothing he wears.

Sycamore had lots of fun hosting our coffee afternoon for Macmillan this afternoon. Thanks to everyone who supported us by providing cakes and by coming along.

We investigated which materials are good insulators. We tried to make it a fair test.

Properties of materials

We mind-mapped how and why we should keep healthy.
