An exciting week for Sycamore

Dear parents,

An exciting week for Sycamore this week!

It’s been equality and diversity week, so we have been learning about accepting and appreciating our differences. We had a guest speaker in class doing some workshops!

We have also had a visit form Adele at Chester Zoo with the ‘Sing for Songbirds’ project! Adele has been teaching us about some endangered birds, in particular, the ones in Chester Zoo at the moment! The children thoroughly enjoyed this.

 

In Maths, we have finished off our topic of addition and subtraction! The children have worked hard at using estimation, inverse operations and checking strategies!

In English, we have started a new topic – a defeating villain story about Dr Who and the Daleks! The children have really enjoyed this so far, and are getting to know the story really well. We have focused on vocabulary, grammatical features and finished the week with a hot seating task! Some children took the hot seat, microphone, and got into role as Dr Who!

Well done Sycamore! Have a lovely weekend!

Miss Burke.
