Homework and Spellings
Hello and welcome to Sycamore's class page
It has been lovely to see the children back in school after the summer holidays, ready and eager to learn; complete with smiley faces! The children have settled in really well ‘upstairs’ and are showing myself and Miss Robinson how sensible they are and telling us how excited they are to be in Year 4.
Thank you to those parents who were able to make the homework meeting, it was great to meet you and explain Year 4’s homework expectations. For those of you who were unable to make it this time, your child will have received a newsletter and another ‘homework’ letter detailing the homework, reading and spelling information for this year. Ifyou need another one, please let us know.
So then, what have Sycamore been up to? Let’s find out.
Tuesday 19th September
Today was Viking Day! We had so much fun with the Hobgoblin Theatre Company!
We started our Viking adventure by watching a mini Viking drama where we learned lots of interesting facts about who the Vikings were and why they came over to Britain.
During the play we learned lots of important dates and used our Viking knowledge to answer some tricky Viking riddles and questions. It was lots and lots of fun!
After that, we then took on the role as a Viking and re-enacted different scenes from the drama – this really tested our listening skills and memories.
Here are some photos from our morning:
Thursday 21st September
Today we talked about friendship, qualities and characteristics that make a good friend and why we are friends in our class,
We created a web of friendship by saying nice things to one another and rolling the ball of string to create a tangled web of friendship. We kept telling each other the characteristics they have and the nice things that they do until we ran out of string (we used A LOT of it).
We then created a friendship tree in our topic books with the characteristics that were important to us.
Here is some of our work.

We also had the idea of creating a HUGE friendship tree in school so that everyone could add their ideas and thoughts – so watch this space!!
Sycamore's Reading Challenge
Miss Edwards set us a reading challenge this half term. It was to find an unusual but safe place to read. Take a look at some of our funny places to read a book!
