Welcome to Sycamore Class!

We are really lucky to have different people who help us in Sycamore Class.

Here are our key adults:

  • Mrs Davies - Class Teacher
  • Miss McGreal - Teaching Assistant
  • Mrs Thomson - Teaching Assistant

Our KS2 Speech and Language Resource Base is set up to specifically support children with speech, language and communication needs. Sycamore Class is located within the main school building and accommodates pupils from Year 3 through to Year 6. It is a friendly and welcoming classroom where every child is supported to reach their full potential!

Pupils who access Sycamore Class will have:

  • Access to a full, rich and relevant curriculum
  • Opportunities to develop socially and academically
  • Specialist support through small group teaching
  • A language rich environment

All children in Sycamore Class also have a place within a mainstream class. The time the children spend in their mainstream class is dependent on pupils' individual needs. 


What are we learning in Spring 2?

This half term, our focus text is Big Blue Whale by Nicola Davies. We will use this text as a stimulus to develop our understanding of sentence structure and how to use question marks. Our focus text links nicely to our geography unit this half term as we will be exploring coastlines. We aim to gain an understanding of what a coast is and where they are located around the UK.


Pupils in Sycamore Class need to come to school dressed in their PE kits on the following days:

Wednesday - Forest School and PE lesson

Thursday - Swimming


Reading books are changed every Wednesday. Each child will bring home a reading practice book linked to their reading ability. If they are accessing phonics, this will be a Read Write Inc book. Pupils will also bring home a reading for pleasure book. This is for you to share with them and enjoy!

We encourage children to read at home as often as possible and this should be recorded in their school planner.
