Welcome to Sycamore Class!
Hello, my name is Mrs Plummer and I am Sycamore's Class this year. We are also very lucky to have Miss Hall and Miss Nixon working with us this term.
Our topic for our final term is:
'Being me in the future'
To begin our topic, we will be thinking about what we already know about the terms past, present and future. We will Begin to think about what change is and whether it is positive or negative and discuss changing classes and teachers. From this we will look at our future goals and what we can do to achieve them!
We will be linking our science learning with our topic, by investigating the basic needs of a human for survival. We will begin to look at the importance of fitness, hygiene, and a balanced diet in keeping ourselves healthy and happy now and as we grow into teenagers and adults. We will look at how our heart rate changes during exercise in PE and begin to investigate what this means. Links will be made with our DT learning through the study of nutrition and cooking and we will design and prepare healthy recipes using our understanding of the healthy food plate. In history we will be looking at why others acted as they did in the past. We will explore the rations people ate during the World War 2 and think about how hygienic they might have been using artefacts and research.
To further enhance our understanding of nutrition and exercise we will be designing and making our very
own Joe Wicks inspired recipe and exercise book as part of a 'young enterprise' project. We will also
begin to think about our aspirations for the future. Many inspirational visitors will be coming to share
their professions with us and we can't wait to find out how they achieved success! We will then be
thinking about what we will need to do to be just as successful in our own future!
Amongst all the fun, we will have a final trip to the the beach at Lytham St Anne's and we cant wait!
Our Writing focus for the beginning of the term will be based the fantastic novel 'Gangsta Granny' by David Walliams.
It is important that your child's book bag is in school every day. Please read with your child every night and discuss what you have read. You do not need to read the whole book at once.
Homework will be given out every Friday reflecting the children's learning that week. Please ensure homework is back in school by Thursday to ensure homework can be issued the following Friday.
Please make sure that every piece of clothing that comes into school has your child's name on it so that if it does get lost or misplaced it can be easily returned.
We have two P.E sessions every week, including a specialist FUNDA session. Please make sure your child has their P.E kits in school throughout the term.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate
to come and speak to me.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs Plummer :)
