Sycamore - Year 5

Year 5 - Sycamore Class

Class teacher Ms. Maxine Senior

Class overview

Welcome to Sycamore Class page, you can find us in the Lee building. We are taught by Ms. Senior everyday except on Tuesdays when Mrs. Millard and the Spanish teacher take over and teach the class from 11:45 to 3:30.There are 32 children in Sycamore Class.

We are a friendly group, who try to work hard together and help each other to enjoy learning.


We learn in a variety of different ways in Sycamore Class, taking our objectives from the National Curriculum. English and Maths are taught daily using creative and memorable approaches. Much of the learning is topic based, so links are made between subjects regularly. Computing is taught and used throughout all subjects when possible and new skills are taught in weekly Computing lessons.

The timetable is displayed in the classroom so we are able to organise ourselves for each lesson. Physical Education is very important and is taught on Wednesdays and Thursdays

You can find out more about what Sycamore Class will be doing on our Topic Map, which is ready for you to download, at the bottom of this page.

Homework is given out every Friday and is due in again on the following Wednesday. We can expect Spellings, Maths and usually an English or Topic-based activity and are also required to read roughly ten pages a day, five days a week. In addition, we get extra support from our teacher on Monday lunchtime if we are having any problems with our homework.

Life in Sycamore Class

Sycamore Class are supportive, friendly and have a calm learning environment. We take learning seriously but still have fun. We also help each other to reach our full potential by taking part in peer editing and working as a team. In addition, we listen to each other and give suggestions for improvement.
