Sycamores

Spring Term 2020

Miss Harrison, Mr Comely and all the children in Sycamores have come back to school raring to go!

Our topic for the spring term “Who Lit the First Fire”.   This is a History led topic where we will find out about how Britain has changed since Pre-Historic times. We will be learning about the Stone Age, The Bronze Age and the Iron Age and the important developments which occurred in each era. We are going to be designing and making our own Stone Age settlement and making our houses from natural materials. We will be doing some cloth dyeing using fruits and we will be cooking and stewing some of the foods that were around in the Stone Age.

In English we will be reading a novel called How to Skin a Bear, and we will be writing our own adventure stories set in Pre-historic times.

In Maths we will be covering multiplication and division so we really need to get learning our 3x, 6x, 8x tables!

In PE we are doing Forest Schools every Thursday afternoon with Forest Phil. We will be making our own campfires and collecting materials to help with the building of our settlements.

 

Another busy term to look forward to with plenty of interesting learning challenges and opportunities to work together as a team.
