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:
We are going to be spending terms 3 and 4 exploring the Romans. We will learn all about what it was like to live as a Roman and a Roman Soldier. We will explore their foods and their way of life, along with the beginning of the Roman empire. We will even be making our own Roman mosaics during DT.
We have made a great start to our topic and have explored the beginning of the Roman empire, through the story of Romulus and Remus. Sycamore class have carried out some brilliant research too, during our Non-fiction based English lessons - we have learnt some interesting facts about what it was like to be a Roman slave!
PE- For terms 3 and 4 , we are going to be going swimming each Tuesday morning, please ensure children bring swimming kit each week. 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.

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 Romans on the internet!
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 :)
Remember to check the class website for ideas and activities linked to our class topic too :)
