Sycamore Learning Blog: End of Spring 2

By Mr Hall on Thursday, March 29, 2018 in News. No Comments

Hello everyone! Welcome to the final learning blog of the half term and indeed the term. Hasn’t it flown by so quickly! The children have managed to fit sooooooo much learning into less than 5 short weeks – we’ve also had to deal with snow, a class assembly and Easter week too.

This half term we have loved learning about the Great Fire of London as part of our topic. We read the story of ‘The Dark’ by Lemony Snicket before learning about the true stories of Samuel Pepys and the great fire itself. We became fire investigators for a week, and later got to meet some real firefighters and their fire engine! The children learned about Edvard Munch and created some of their own truly terrifying pictures based on ‘The Scream’! We also loved having Roald Dahl as our author of the half term. On top of all that, we have been doing reading and maths and PE and science and history and just about everything else you can imagine!

Mrs Brown and I just want to say a big thank you to you all for your continued support this year, it really does mean a lot to us. We’re getting to the stage in the year now where working hard and trying your best really are the most important things. I hope the children have a well-earned rest and recharge their batteries over the next couple of weeks – to keep things ticking along, I’ve set a Sumdog challenge,  sent home 4 holiday books to read, as well as new spellings in reading diaries and new targets in homework books. If you want to help your child further, think ‘little and often’ – spend 10 minutes a day doing some reading or writing or spellings or maths, and it will really help in the long run.

Thanks for reading, have a lovely Easter holiday, and see you at the start of Summer 1!

Mr Hall 🙂
