Sycamore

Welcome to Sycamore Class

 

Team Sycamore is the key stage 1 and lower key stage 2 class. We have a great deal of fun and laughter while using a blended approach to learning that uses aspects of the national curriculum as well as a bespoke curriculum that is designed to meet the individual needs of each learner. We have 10 children in class, 4 teaching assistants and 1 teacher. 

Our ethos is that we meet all our children's individual needs in a creative, adventurous and exciting way. We passionately believe in giving everyone the opportunities to be 'amazing'.

In Sycamore Class we love, value and promote

reading 'for all'

 

Books and reading forms a cornerstone of the educational offer available in Sycamore class. We encourage reading for pleasure as well as reading for necessity and every way books can be used in the in-between. Our end aim is to instil a lifelong love of reading in all of its forms. We believe firmly that this love comes from as many early experiences with books and stories as possible.

 

We have opportunities for teaching letters and sounds using teaching approaches that suit the needs of the children. We have sensory phonics groups, whole word reading groups and groups focused on ‘read write inc’ approaches. All children hear and engage with elements of each approach so that they have the opportunity to find an approach that suits their way of learning the most.
