Christingle Making

This afternoon Canon Larkey came into Sycamore Class to help make Christingle candles for our Christingle service tomorrow morning.  The children listened carefully to the instructions and all produced a wonderful Christingle orange.  Ask your child about the meaning of all its components.


Woodborough Walk

Today we changed our woodland visit to a Woodborough village walk.  The Sycamores  followed a map they were given, trying to spot landmarks as they went along.  The children added a few more details to make our map even better.   Great map work.  Nobody got lost!


Today we did the sponsored event and had a fantastic time working through the exercises in the circuit. The children really enjoyed it and were inspired by Katrina Hart’s assembly which followed.

Don’t forget to return sponsorship forms with the money by next Monday.

Today the Sycamore children got inventive making 2D and 3D shapes out of sticks, leaves and mud.  They showed off with their extensive knowledge of the shapes and the shapes properties.

Woodland Bonfires

Today Sycamore Class was busy building bonfires for fairies and animals in the woods.  We discussed how to be safe around fireworks and bonfires before creating some awesome poems around bonfire night.  Here are some of our creations!

Fizz goes the fireworks.

Fizz, bang, pop – off they go.

Crackling is the fire,

Hot dogs and burgers.

Up into the sky they explode!


How about this one…


It smells like smoke and petrol.

It looks like a mountain of flames are dancing and wriggling.

It sounds like Christmas crackers popping.

It tastes like hot dogs and sweets, sometimes I get smoke in my mouth.

It feels like a warm cuddle or bath.

It makes me happy.

Hopefully pictures will follow… Technical issues tonight! Sorry.

Bonfire night and the Fire of London

We have begun our new topic about the Great Fire of London. We have really enjoyed hearing about some of the facts. I am sure you have heard we have also started to learn ‘London’s Burning ‘song.

Keeping with the fire theme we are learning about Bonfire night and fireworks. Today we listened to some poetry  and then had a go at performing.

This afternoon we created a brilliant bonfire and firework pictures.
