Welcome to Sycamore Class!
Welcome to the Sycamore class page. All of the exciting things that we are going to be learning about over the year will be filed here for you to look at too. I will keep the children updated about when the page has been refreshed so that you can celebrate their hard work.
I would also like to say well done to the class for having such a fantastic week back after the holiday. All of the children have settled in well and they are all really excited about the lessons ahead. Well done!
Fire of London Experience Day
Sycamore and Cedar class both had a fantastic day experiencing the life of those that lived in 1666. The children had the opportunity to create their own clay pots, bookmarks, perfume bags and much more. Throughout the day the children gained lots of knowledge and facts about the fire and impressed our visitors with all of the knowledge they have gained so far about the fire.
Thanks to all of the parent helpers that came along to provide the children with the best possible experience.
This week Sycamore class have been learning about materials and their properties. The children have looked at reflective and non-reflective materials as well as comparing the transparency of different objects. Below are some pictures of our recent experiment. The children had to select two different materials to use to build a house from. They predicted which material they thought would be the best and then tested to see if their predictions were correct. Great exploring, Sycamore!
Fun with Fire Engines
As part of our 'Great Fire of London' theme, Sycamore class have been creating their own fire engines in DT. They started the unit by exploring existing products and then in pairs they designed what they would like our own vehicles to look like. The children painted their own egg boxes and then attached wheels and axels to enable their fire engines to move. At the end of the project, parents and carers were invited into the classroom to help with decorating. Sycamore class would like to say a massive thank you to all of the adults that came in to support them. Their final pieces were fantastic! Great designing, Sycamore!
English - Wanted Posters
Year 2 have enjoyed learning about 'Jack and the Beanstalk' in English. The children decided to change the giant from the story into their own villain. After, they created their own wanted posters for our class display. If you notice any of these villains wandering around Basildon, be sure to let us know!
