Year 5 and 6 teacher

Welcome to Year 5/6

A very warm welcome to one and all and welcome to your Sycamore Class Page for year 5 & 6. Here, you will find information about key events, our termly newsletter, curriculum overview, web links, and photos.

I am the Class Teacher, Mrs Thorpe. Mrs Hodsdon, Mrs Ringwald, Miss Burt and Mrs Desai are our Teaching Assistants who work with us at different times throughout the week.

I am very excited to be teaching you this year in year 5/6 and helping you to build on your skills and areas of interest, along with the help and support of your parents we will make good progress this year.

Our class is made up of 26 enthusiastic, creative and considerate Year 5 and 6 pupils. In our Class, we respect each other and are proud of each other’s achievements. We work together to create a welcome and warm class atmosphere, where every class member feels valued and loved. I will as always make every effort to meet the needs of every child in my class and endeavour to make this classroom a really enjoyable environment for the children to spend their time in.

If you are a parent or carer and have any questions for me, then please email the office at [email protected] who will pass on your message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Term 1 - What makes us Unique?

This term, each class has focused on celebrating our similarities and differences. Each child has worked hard to improve their 'daily mile' time whether its been rain or shine! Our main outcome was to create a mini video demonstrating why we are all unique, which you can watch here.

A big thank you to all the parents who were able to come along to our 'Wonderful Wednesday'. We had a fantastic 192 parents and family members who came along to celebrate this term's learning. We understand that it is not always easy to take time off work and reschedule other things during the school day but hope you enjoy the video.

Term 3 - Can we Investigate?

This term, our big question was 'Can we investigate?'

We had lots of fun trying out a range of scientific skills alongside the other learning which took place.

Here is a snapshot of the activities we experienced.
