Welcome back Sycamore Class!
Our topic for this half term is Road Trip USA! In English we will be looking at the story, How the Stars Fell into the Sky, which is a legend told by the Native American Navajo tribe. Our art lessons will explore a range of art forms that this tribe once practiced, including weaving, Iroquois longhouses and dreamcatchers. We will also be learning about the geography of the USA and some of the famous physical features that can be found there. In science we will be using a range of components to form basic circuits and will be discussing different electrical appliances. We are all very excited to be exploring this topic!

Our first class read!! The Boy at the Back of the Class...
With the current situation in Afghanistan we felt that it would be good to ensure all children are starting the year with a book that explores attitudes towards those from other cultures and in a broader sense, those whose lives are different to ours.
The Boy at the Back of the Class is a child’s perspective on the refugee crisis, highlighting the importance of friendship and kindness in a world that doesn’t always make sense.
