Week 14

A delightful ‘Christmas Week’ to finish the term. We cooked a Christmas dinner, made cards and Father Christmas even came a little bit early to drop off a class present (Kindly arranged by the PTA).

Week 12

Another busy week in Sycamore. The children enjoyed dissecting a flower and labelling the different parts during their science lesson.

Week 11

An out of the ordinary week for Year 6 (and the rest of Preston Primary School) however I must congratulate the children on handling last minute timetable and teachers changes with great maturity. We completed a great extended write about whether bullies should be excluded from school and also revisited how our body digests food with a truly stomach turning practical lesson. 

Week 10

A productive week in Sycamore Class. We wore odd socks to celebrate anti-bullying week and then spotty clothes for children in need. Everyone performed war poetry as a mark of respect for Remembrance Day alongside some ukulele practise during music lessons.

Week 9

Sycamore channeled their inner scientist this week and consolidated their learning of the heart by getting to dissect and inspect a real pig's heart. Although a little smelly, the children were able to identify major arteries and veins that are extremely similar to that of a human heart.

We also welcome Leonardos in for a Cool Aeronautics STEM day. We made designed and built rafts and roller coasters as well as learning about the exciting jobs available at Leonardos.

Week 7

As part of October's Black History Month, Sycamore have been learning about the history and culture of black British individuals and of other cultures from around the world. They produced some excellent writing on civil rights leaders, learned an exhilarating dance from Zimbabwe and produced some excellent African flatbread. We also finished our Maya history topic and celebrated by making our own chocolate drinks.

Week 6

One week closer to half term but still as busy as ever. We celebrated #HelloYellow Day with some fantastic fancy dress and had many discussions over mental health. We also were fortunate enough to head to Yeovil Bowls Club to partake in fun sports sessions.

Week 5

Another week has sailed by in Sycamore Class. Plenty to do as we delved into fractions for the second week in a row and wrote poems all about ourselves for National Poetry Day. We were fortunate to be visited by the wonderful Mary Ellis who is a magistrate and involved in our upcoming Mock Trial at Perrott Hill school. She kindly talked to us all about the justice system and the roles and responsibilities that a magistrate has. We also celebrated our Harvest Festival, collecting goods for the Lords’ Larder. 

Week 4

Another brilliant week in Sycamore Class. Lots of people taking part in the Bikeability course so it has left the rest of us to tackle some important fractions. Not to worry though as those who missed out will get to do it next week. We celebrated European Language Day in style by learning how to greet each other in several different languages!

Week 3

Well, where has the week gone? An action-packed seven days with some brilliant instruction writing on ‘how to keep your parents happy’ alongside learning about the Mayan ruler Pacal the Great. A clip below of our own rendition of ‘it’s all about love’.

Week 2

The first of many assessment weeks is underway and so far the children have been brilliant. It's not easy completing work that is meant for the end of Year 6 and I have been pleased with the resilience and attitude shown by the class. Lots to work on but lots of time to do it. The children have been excellent in science this week, creating their own classification keys to sort animals. 

Week 1

Well, it feels like we've never been away. Some fantastic recount writing of what we got up to in our holidays alongside some beautiful artwork made with handmade utensils that we found outside. Great to see everyone settling in and getting used to the new routine.


Welcome Everyone!


Myself and Mrs Chislett are excited to see you all in September. Please remember your purple science books and that we have swimming starting on Monday. Hope you all had  lovely summer and can't wait hear all about it.
