Hello Sycamore class here are some ideas for some home learning. These are all book based as it is World Book Day, however if you have any other ideas, I look forward to seeing them when we are back at school.


  • Remember to read, you could dress up as a character from your book and take a picture, then write about them
  • You could draw a comic strip about a day in the snow
  • Write a story about being in the arctic or on an island and how you survive
  • Write a poem about the snow
  • Collect some of your reading books and calculate the cost of the books

(The price is generally on the back)

  • Calculate how many pages you have left to read
  • You could play a board game and calculate how long it takes to finish

Finally take photos of the snow, play in the snow and keep warm.


In Term 4, Sycamore Class will be studying the Shang Dynasty in China.


During Term 3, Sycamore Class made fairground rides for their D.T. projects. Please take a look at their designs.

Please take a look at our home learning.

The children created some amazing work, showing their learning about space.

Here you will find details of our long term, home learning for term 1.
