Sycamore - Year 5

Year 5 - Sycamore Class    Class teacher : Mrs Sofflet


Hi Sycamore Class,

I've attached some new activities for this week (beginning 6th July). Contact me on Purple Mash or if you need help with any of it.

There is no zoom session this week as we will be meeting at school instead. I'm looking forward to seeing you all!

Take care and keep smiling, 

Mrs Sofflet smiley                               


It is important (and fun) to keep reading!

There is a site providing free eBooks! 


Class overview

Welcome to the Sycamore Class page. There are 30 children in our class and you can find us in the Lee building. We are taught by Mrs Sofflet everyday except on Mondays when Mrs. Millard takes over to teach us English and RE in the afternoon. For some lessons we are also supported by Mrs Spight. Roger Thorogood kindly volunteers to help us on Wednesday or Thursday mornings.

We are a friendly, hard working group, who enjoy learning and strive to be the best that we can.



We learn in a variety of different ways in Sycamore Class, taking our objectives from the National Curriculum. English and Maths are taught daily and 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.

You can find out more about what Sycamore Class will be doing on our Topic Map at the bottom of this page.


Physical Education is very important and we have opportunities to be physically active everyday. PE lessons are on Wednesdays and Fridays but is a good idea to have a PE kit in school everyday incase of special events or timetable changes.


Homework is given out every Friday and is due in again on the following Wednesday. This includes a maths and English or topic-based activity. It also really helps us if we read daily (about ten pages a day). It is a good idea for us to try to read a range of fiction and non-fiction texts. 


Spellings will be given out on a Monday and checked the following Monday.


Life in Sycamore Class

We have a calm learning environment in Sycamore Class and everyone is friendly and supportive. 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 teamwork. In addition, we listen to each other and give suggestions for improvement. 


Well achieved GOLD sports award for the 2nd year! Please look after yourselves. There is a drive by testing centre at Milton Park and Ride with a very quick turn around for anyone who might need to book a Covid-19 test.
