Sycamore – Year 5

Blended learning menu #3

Bore da,

We hope you all had a good half term break despite the firebreak lockdown.

We want to say thank you to all the parents we spoke to last week during our parents evening consultations. It was strange doing it via telephone but so lovely to speak to you all and talk about our fabulous class.

As mentioned last week, if you need to get in touch, for any reason, please send us an email. 


One change to mention for this half term...


Forest school sessions  will be held on Tuesday 17th Nov, 1st and 15th Dec.

Please could the children bring in wellies and coats, as we will be outdoors for these sessions.


Final note, please could the children bring in a small pebble/rock this week (about the size of their hand and with a flat, smooth surface) for painting.


Thank you,

Mrs George and Mr Manship

Blended Learning Menu #2

Bore da bawb, good morning everyone!

We can't believe it's half term next week! It has flown by and we have loved being back in the classroom with the children.


As you will have heard in the school newsletter, every 2 weeks a new Blended Learning Menu for Sycamore Class will be put up on this webpage. On the menu there are ideas for things you can do at home with your child, which will enhance the work being covered in class. 

It will also be put up on Google Classroom. The work can be completed in their green workbooks that were sent home or on Google Classroom in slides/docs. 


If you have any problems accessing Google Classroom or you have questions about the work, please don't hesitate to email us at or

Welcome back from Mr Manship, Mrs George and Mr Maher

Welcome Sycamore class!

We're so pleased to be back in the classroom, all together again. It has been so lovely to see all your smiling faces each morning smiley.


We're very excited to be taking part in the project My School, My Planet with Craig Armiger. 

Our theme is soils, growing and cooking outdoors. By the end of the project the class will have got close to nature, discovered more about the importance of soils, particularly in relation to growing, as well as what can be done in school grounds to address this. They will have created something new to for their grounds that relates to this topic and will have planned to continue work in this area.

With this in mind, please can the children bring in wellies or old shoes, along with their coats, each Monday? These can either stay in school for the half term or be taken home each Wednesday after our sessions.
