Sycamore Class Blog – Summer Term
Summer Term in Sycamore has been as productive and busy as ever with the Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) having been completed in May. The children worked exceptionally hard and faced each challenge head-on, with the pre-SATs breakfast mornings proving a popular hit each day! They should be extremely proud of their efforts and achievements this year, particularly in the past few months. I am confident that the work ethic everyone has shown will stand them in good stead for secondary school.
The quality of our independent writing has improved rapidly, with fabulous work produced in narrative writing, persuasive writing – who wouldn’t want to come to Purbeck for a visit? – and working as an investigative reporter when writing a newspaper article based on a real event. Great job everyone!
We have also explored different examples of Pop Art, especially the work of Andy Warhol, and then used a well-known brand logo to create our own piece of Pop Art. Being summer, it has been time to get the cricket and rounders equipment out for games, as well as practising a range of athletic track and field events. The Safer Schools Community Team (SSCT) paid a visit regarding e-safety, and some Year 6 children have been busily preparing for the 'St. George's has got Talent' evening.
We are all very much looking forward to our upcoming Leavers' Service at Salisbury Cathedral, as well as the climax of our Year 6 experience – our residential trip to PGL.
