Fun Book Quiz - email me your answers!
This website has some really awesome maths activities. A new one is added every day. I would LOVE to see you try some of these and send me pics of the work you have done.
Despite being technologically challenged, I have managed to set up a blog on Purple Mash so that we can all communicate. I've posted some tips on how to stay motivated during this time of home learning.
To access, click on the sharing tab from the Purple Mash homepage, then scroll to 'Shared Blogs'. If I have set it up correctly, you should see Sycamore Class Blog. Read, comment, set up your own - the choice is yours.
If anyone is unable to log on, email me on email@example.com and I will send you your log in details.
Hope day one of home school has been fun!

Sharing the love for Feeling Good Week!
A HUGE well done to Layla, Riddhi and Rosie who designed and distributed a quiz in order to raise money for animals affected by the Australian wildfires.
The children raised just under £40 and inspired Miss Mansi to donate as well - bringing their total to £50.
We decided that the money was best spent becoming WWF 'Koala Protectors'. Well done girls - the Brookland community are so proud of you!
Sycamore Class have taken it upon themselves to attempt to break a world record!
Using scrap paper, the children are attempting to created the world's longest paper chain.
The current individual world record stands at 779.21m but we are going to attempt the longest group chain within a certain amount of time.
Well done Sycamore Class for your innovation!
Going for a record...
Christmas fun has started in Sycamore Class!
While finishing off our topic, the children took it in turns to ice biscuits. Evidence was swiftly eaten but lots of fun was had!
Sycamore Class have had an AMAZING first term in Year 6!
We are currently redrafting and publishing our adventure narrative writing, based on Alice in Wonderland. They are coming along marvellously, full of atmospheric setting descriptions and suspense!
Sycamore Class are Maths geniuses. They amaze me with their understanding and are currently mastering their understanding of adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators. Keep practising those times tables though guys!
