Welcome to Sycamore Class


Learning of the week

  • Over the next 3 weeks in maths, we will be converting units of measurement and finding the area and perimeter of rectangles, triangles and parallelograms.  We will also be finding the volume of cubes and cuboids.
  • In literacy, we will be writing our own arguments. The children will try to persuade me that they should not have to wear school uniform, they should be allowed to eat lots of sweets and they should be allowed to bring their mobile phones into school!!!
  • In science we will be carrying out a unit of work on Evolution and Inheritance. The children will recognise that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago. They will recognise that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents. They will also  identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environments in different ways and that adaption may lead to evolution.

Our learning context for term 4 is entitled ‘Off with her head!’.  This is a history topic where the children will be investigating why Henry VIII married six times?  The children will find out about the Tudors through the story of Henry VIII’s marriages and be introduced to some of the political and religious factors that affected his decisions . In art, the children will be making their own clay Tudor roses.
