Sycamore - Year 5

Welcome to Sycamore Class!

We are looking forward to a busy term.  Our topic is Location, Location, Location and we are beginning by exploring Ancient Greece.  If you have any books or objects at home that might support our learning, and that you are willing to lend to us, please bring them in.


Homework will normally be sent home on Thursday to be returned by Tuesday, and spellings will come home on Fridays to be tested the following Friday.


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.


Location, Location, Location topic overview

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.
