Sycamore’s celebrations and remembrance!
This week has been a very important week in Sycamore class. The children have been discussing the life of Sir Captain Tom Moore. The children have shared lots of messages and activities inspired by Sir Tom Moore’s inspirational work in the army during the Second World War and for his charitable fundraising for the NHS during the pandemic through walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday. Each day this week children at home and in school have been completed 5 laps a day to contribute to the school’s total of 100 laps in remembrance of Sir Captain Tom Moore. Some children in Sycamore class set their own challenges for 20 a day these activities include: star jumps, squats, sit ups, holding a gymnastics position for 20 seconds and much more!
The children have worked incredibly hard for the during of the spring term and they should be very proud of themselves. I am especially proud of their fantastic persuasive letters to the wicked witch. The children have carefully listened to the key features of persuasive letters and they have edited their work independently. The children have joined in lots of word games this term to support them in building up their banks of vocabulary it has been great to see the children enjoy these games and also use these words to make their work even better.
In Maths this term we have covered a variety of areas such as fractions, geometry and time. The children have demonstrated a depth of understanding and have really developed their reasoning skills when tasked with ‘prove how your answer is correct’ as the children know that the journey to the answer is just as important as the answer. We will be recapping and recalling key words and information in the following term.
What a fantastic start to the Spring term. Sycamore class you should all be incredibly proud of yourselves for adapting so well to our zoom lessons! I hope that you all have a fabulous half term and I look forward to seeing you in a weeks time!
