Check back here to see what has been happening in Sycamore Class.
Mrs G Hindes
Miss T Fordham
There have been lots of changes in Sycamore Class this week. We have said 'Au Revoir' to Mrs Savage and 'Bonjour' to Miss Fordham. Don't worry, Mrs Savage hasn't left Jotmans Hall. She has just moved to work next door, in Elm Class. Miss Fordham is new to our team at Jotmans Hall and Sycamore Class have enjoyed welcoming her to the school and showing her the ropes.
In Sycmamore Class we have just begun to learn about the Pop Art movement. This week the class found out all about the life and works of Andy Warhol and how he came to be one of the most famous artists of all time. After the children completed their research on Andy Warhol they completed their own mini piece of Pop Art using a favourite possession or like as inspiration.
As part of Sycamore Class' computing this term they are designing a range of different materials to host a Charity Cake Sale. Many of the children expressed a wish before Christmas to raise money to help the homeless, so they asked Miss Warnes if they could host a Cake Sale to raise money for the charity HARP. The children were delighted when she said yes and are looking forward to making cakes and treats in class before the sale.
Last week the children made posters in Word using a range of dfifferent techniques and wrote letters, which will be sent out next week. The cake sale will be held on Friday 15th February in Sycamore Class. Check back for more examples of their work and information about the cake sale.
Sycamore Class recieved a letter this week from Wallace and Gromit asking for their help. They have lost all the blueprints for their new inventions and have requested that Sycamore Class design new contraptions and write explanations for them. First, Sycamore Class learnt about the features of explanation texts and then created blueprints for a contraption to solve a household problem. The class did a cracking job and really enjoyed using their imagination. Amongst the contraptions were machines to groom pets, wash windows, clean the house and even catch home invaders. Have a look through at some of our blueprints. Come back next week to read some of our explanations!
The children in Sycamore Class have been busy creating calendars for 2019. The children have drawn portraits of themselves as rich Tudors and then used watercolour paints to finish their masterpieces. Calendars will be sent home at the end of term, ready for the start of 2019. I am very impressed with their painting skills and I am sure you all will be too.
