Sycamore 2016-17

Our small class of 22 pupils is a mixed year 5/6 class. We are lucky enough to be taught by two teachers: Mrs Fitzgerald (from Monday through to Wednesday) and Miss Brammer (from Wednesday afternoon until Friday).


HACA in Year 5

Pupils and their teachers from HACA came into class to work with us on a Music and Drama project. We did a production of Little Red Riding Hood and then performed it to parents.

Fire  Safety 

The Fire Service came into class to talk to us about fire safety and how to create a home evacuation plan.

Red Nose Day





Cultural Afternoon

March 2017

Sycamore had two special visitors in class: Stephanie Oboh and Yujing Zhang; both are studying at Leeds University.  They came to teach us about their own countries: Stephanie is from Nigeria and Yuing from China.

They taught us about life in their home cities, brought food for us to try and taught us some traditional dances.  Some of us had our hair plaited and got very good at dancing with a fan.

Useful Information 

  • Our PE day is Friday.
  • Our homework is to read each night and learn our spellings each week. Spellings are given out on a Friday to be tested the following Thursday. We will also get additional homework linked to what we have been learning in school each week.
  • Your child should bring a water bottle every day with fresh water.
  • Make sure that you check class Dojo regularly for key information as to what is happening in school. This can also be used as a way to communicate with us.
