Welcome to our class page!
We are Sycamore Class! We are Year 6 and we have 28 children in our class; Miss Warren is our teacher and we are very lucky to share three wonderful teaching assistants: Mrs Young, Mr Winsor and Mrs Reynolds. We will use this page to share all of the work we do in class. We hope you enjoy reading it.
Our Autumn Term topic is World War Two. We have been creating Blitz artwork using pastels and here we are showcasing them!
On the 15th and 16th November, Year 6 enjoyed two days of indoor rowing. During these days, they took part in individual races and team races; each competing to get the best time. When they weren't rowing, they had to complete a circuit of stretches and exercises where they demonstrated excellent team work skills by encouraging each other and supporting each other when they were stretching. They all had a fantastic two days and we think we have some future rowers in our year group!
We love earning Dojo Points in class. We can earn points for demonstrating our whole school learning behaviours: creativity, curiosity, independence, reflection, resilience and teamwork. Every time we are 'caught' using these learning behaviours we receive a Dojo point from the teachers. We can collect Dojo points to earn rewards. Our Class Dojo is linked to our parents and we can share our learning directly with them.
We have been enjoying our maths work this term. We have been using lots of resources to help and deepen our learning. We enjoy using concrete materials to help us; so far we have used place value counters, number lines, place value charts, number cards and counters to help us visualise our maths problems.
We have been studying Carrie's War in our Literacy lessons and we have planned and written our own stories based on World War Two. Below is some examples of our writing. We hope you enjoy reading them.
This year, Sycamore Class are focusing on our reading skills. When the children have completed a book, they can log on to their REN learning area using the link below and complete a quiz about it. The children can also log on a home and complete quizzes. They all have their own user name and passwords. They can show you all of the books they have read and all of the quizzes they have passed.
