   Sycamore Class   

Welcome to our Class!

Our Teacher is Mr Powell and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Blanch and Mrs Halfpenny. If you have any problems or questions, do not hesitate to talk to one of us at the door in the morning or afternoon.

See the class newsletter for general information and for an overview of what we are learning.


An explanation of the expected uniform is on the bottom of the class newsletter. On the following days, Sycamore children need to come to school wearing their PE kit:

  • Year 4 (Monday)
  • Year 5 (Tuesday)

You may be contacted if your child needs to wear their PE on a different day or if we do outdoor learning. For outdoor learning, we now only ask that children wear appropriate footwear (e.g. wellies) and their normal school uniform.


At the start of each week, Sycamore children are given a sheet containing all the homework for the week. It contains Daily Calculations (including TT Rockstars), spellings (including Spelling Shed), expectations for daily reading and a small weekly writing task. Each child has the login information TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed in the front of their Daily Calculation book.

NOTE: For Spelling Shed, make sure you click on the 'assignment'.

If you are self-isolating and are able to work, the office will provide English and Maths lessons, which are similar to what is being taught in school.
