Towns, tours and mythical tales
Sycamore’s engagement with online learning has been fantastic! The work that the children are producing is phenomenal and to a very high standard.
In Maths, the children have been exploring different units of measure. We have been practicing our skills and converting Centimetres to Millimetres. We have also been converting Kilometres to Metres. The children have really challenged themselves with these tasks and I can see that they are developing in confidence with converting units of measure. We will continue to work with measurement next week where the skills that we have learnt this week will support us in our understanding.
In English, we have completed our myth narratives based on our vehicle text ‘Arthur and The Golden Rope’. The children have really focused on the key features of a myth narrative. The children have included tension through short sentences and have used fronted adverbials to change the pace of their stories. The children were encouraged to read their story out loud to help them during the editing process. They used brilliant expression in their voices and I could tell that they were very proud of their final outcome.
In Topic, Sycamore class have been designing Anglo Saxon settlements and created these using a variety of materials. Some children created their own Anglo-Saxon settlement on Minecraft and recorded a tour and talked about the key features of a settlement. They have also been cracking Anglo-Saxon codes written in runes. Some children have even created their own Anglo-Saxon long boat! We love to see all of the activities that you are doing at home. Please keep the photos coming.
