Welcome to Sycamore Class! We are a mixed Year 3/4 class with teachers Mrs. Redfern and Mrs. Hayward and our two Teaching Assistants, Mrs. Gould and Mrs. Bouchama.

We will be learning about World War I in Sycamore Class this term! Find out how we will be exploring our topic in all areas of the curriculum by downloading the overview here, here and here.

'Archie's War', by Marcia Williams, is the text we will be reading and linking to our WWI Topic. Our Guided Reading text is called 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl.

Homework is assigned on a Friday and should be completed by the following Wednesday. It will consist of spellings and either a Mathematics, English or Topic related activity. It is expected that your child reads nightly and records in their Reading Record. 

We are hoping to visit the Trowbridge Museum in the Autumn to learn and discover more facts relating to our WWI Topic. 

This term in PE, we will be improving our Gymnastic skills. PE will be held on a Thursday afternoon. Swimming sessions for Year 4's start on the 4th November and will continue until 17th February 2022 (excluding 16th December - as this is the last week of term)
