Welcome to Sycamore Class!

Corona Virus – Home Learning for children who are self-isolating

Please see the overview below.  These are some suggestions to support the children’s learning and to enable them to complete work at home over the coming weeks. We are committed to ensuring that your child is still learning as much as possible.

Teachers will upload additional activities, matched to the Maths and English learning being done in school, on to each class page on a daily basis. Children should complete these activities in their homework book or on paper.

Tasks will also be set by teachers on SEESAW and Purple Mash, and logins for these websites will be sent home on Wednesday evening with the children who are still in school along with simple guidance for using them. Families who are already self-isolating should email the school office for personal login details. Teachers will monitor who has accessed the learning from home.

Please contact us by email if you require any further information.

 This term we are exploring the question: 'What is happening in our world today?'

 

To begin the children will be taking part in a workshop that will take them  on an adventure around the world to see how climate change is affecting our planet. From the melting polar ice caps all the way to diminishing rainforests and polluted seas. During this workshop the children will embark on an adventure to discover what global warming is, the science behind it and what we can all do to have a positive impact on the environment.

In Geography the children will explore how the planet is split up into 7 continents and 5 oceans and investigate how the environment and wildlife within some of these areas have been affected by, in particular, plastic pollution. They will work towards a year group outcome in Design Technology based on all of the learnign this half term where they will use their Art and Engineering skills to design and make a planter for the local environment using ONLY recycled materials.  

 

We have a very exciting term ahead!

Reading books

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. Once your child has read their book and had their book signed they will be given the opportunity to choose a new book. 

 

Homework

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.

 

Clothing

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. 

 

P.E 

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. 

 

 Thank you!
