Sycamore 2018 - 2019

Mrs Holmes

Having spent my PGCE year training here at Kingsley, I am delighted to be back teaching Sycamore class. I was originally a research scientist (I have a PhD!) but I made the decision to switch careers and it has been the best choice I could have made. Away from school I like nothing better than being in the outdoors with my family. I can often be found up a mountain, in a boat, on a climbing wall or standing on a muddy riverbank cheering my daughter on in her attempts to realise her dream of making it onto the Team GB canoe slalom sqaud (she's currently 7 so we have a way to go). 

Welcome to Sycamore Class! 

We have another very busy term ahead of us in Sycamore. We will be continuing to develop our writing, using some fantastic books as our inspiration. Firstly, we will be using Ziraffa Giraffa, the true story of a giraffe who was sent from Egypt to France in 1827. Our topic will be focusing on volcanoes and in science we will be learning about sound. More information on all subjects can be found on the curriculum overview which will be avavilable to download shortly.

Spellings will continue to be set on a Tuesday and there will be a test the following Monday. Times tables tests will be on Fridays. Homework menus can be found in their Kingsley Journals. 

We will be doing PE on Tuesdays and Fridays so please ensure that PE kit is in school on these days. This term, we will be swimming after half term - more information will be sent out in due course. We also run the daily mile so they will need a pair of trainers in school each day. Since we plan to make good use of our outdoor learning environment they will also require a pair of wellies. We also have a WOW! board in our classroom where I would love to share the children's achievements, so please send any pictures or certifcates in for them to show to the rest of the class. 

If, for any reason, you need to speak to me then catch me at the classroom door at the start or end of the day, or speak to the office to arrange and appointment to see me. 

I'm looking forward to another fabulous term and seeing what amazing things we can achieve.
