Welcome to Sycamore Class!
Hello and welcome to Sycamore Class.
We are a Year 3/4 class and our teacher is Miss Campbell. We are lucky to have four Teaching Assistants in our phase who are Mrs Andrews, Mrs Morris, Mrs Dequidt and Miss Allen
Our theme this term is:
'Where Have All the Dragons Gone?'
Following Mrs Hiscocks' traumatic ordeal of her dragon sighting during the Easter holiday, Middle School are going to spend term 5 investigating where he came from!
Our topic is going to be geography based, as we explore a local study of Melksham, trying to decide the best environment for dragons to live in.
We will continue to work hard on our writing this term, beginning with our very own news paper reports about the dragon invasion on our school.
Already this term, we have learnt lots about the different types of dragons from around the world during our guided reading sessions. We have even learnt how to look after a baby dragon and how best to hatch a dragon egg!
PE- We will also be having sessions with out sports coach each Wednesday afternoon. You will need an indoor and an outdoor PE kit in school at all times. Year 4 children who are taking part in swimming this term will need to remember their swimming costume each Tuesday!
Star Values Award
We are expecting you to read 5 times at week at home. Remember, reading doesn't just have to be sat down with a reading book, you could read a recipe, a newspaper, a magazine or I would love to hear what interesting facts you can find out about the different types of dragons from around the world!
Spellings will be set every Monday and will be tested the following Monday. This gives you exactly a week to learn your spellings at home :)
