Welcome to Sycamore Class!

In Sycamore class we strive to try our best, respect each other and reflect positively on our work. 

This term we will be exploring properties of materials in Science, as well as rivers in Geography. In English, we are studying the legend “Beowulf” and looking at the brilliant language used by Michael Murpurgo. We will adapt this language and writing style to create our own ending to the story. In Maths, we are looking at place value, comparing and ordering numbers up to a million. We will also revisit column addition and subtraction in the coming week.
