Years 3 & 4 Sycamores

Welcome to Sycamores!

Sycamore class is where you’ll find an enthusiastic and creative bunch of children in years three and four.

Along with our hard work, positive attitudes and growing independence, we take pride in our work and always put in 100% effort in all areas of the curriculum. We are a friendly, creative bunch and enjoy sharing our success and helping other people. We are keen to talk about our learning and eager to ask questions to gain a better understanding of our wonderful world.

Mrs Hawling (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday), Mrs Minifie (Thursday and Friday) are our class teachers, while Ms M Robbins works in our classroom all week to support our learning.

P.E lessons are every Wednesday with Mr Tanner and a Friday with Mrs Minifie. Please could children come into school dressed in their P.E. kit every Wednesday and Friday.
Homework will be set as a termly project, where the children will be able to choose from a range of activities.  In addition to this, there will be an expectation to spend 10-15 minutes a week on either Numbots or TT Rock Stars, to support their times tables and number bonds or Prodigy Maths. There is also an expectation to read for a minimum of 15 minutes a day. Children will bring a book home every day. Please ensure you record their reading in their reading diary and bring it back to school every day.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. If we are not available at the beginning or end of the day and it is urgent, please leave a message at the office and we will get back to you at our earliest convenience.


English is such an important part of our day. We love to read inspiring texts and use these to develop our writing skills over a series of weeks. We often start our learning with a ‘Hook’ which really excites and engages us in our learning. Each day we use innovative and fun methods to help us learn our spellings and grammar as well as concentrating on perfecting our handwriting.

We love maths in Sycamores and are becoming accomplished mathematicians. As a result of practical maths opportunities, we can apply our learning to solve problems and create our own investigations. We like to use a variety of learning styles to help us to understand tricky mathematical concepts. Children work hard to explain their thinking and show understanding in a variety of ways. We study four main areas of maths over each term; number sense, additive reasoning, multiplicative reasoning and geometric reasoning.
