All week, we have been celebrating the annual World Book Week. This has involved many activities, including story trails, 'extreme reading' competitions, second-hand book swaps, the Bumper Book Quiz, stop animation films and loads more! The week culminated in World Book Day which involved children dressing as their favourite characters from books.
Below are some pictures of the class in their 'fancy dress'! See if you can work out who they all are...you might even find a Where's Wally or two lurking somewhere!

On Tuesday 13th October, Year 6 visited King's College, Taunton, to partake in some science workshops. Details of these workshops, plus more photographs, can be found on the science page (the link is at the top of this page).
Sycamore have recently been on an exciting school trip to Cheddar Gorge and Caves to learn all about the Stone Age. For more information and photographs, please see our Topic page.
On the 23rd and 24th of September, Sycamore Class took part in 'Bikeability', which is a course run by The Road Safety Team to ensure young children are cycling on the roads in a safe, responsible but enjoyable way. The course was split into two days. The first day involved learning the Green Cross Code, basic bicycle skills on the playground and spending the afternoon learning the basic safety precautions when cycling on the road. The second day was full of advanced road cycling skills, including learning road signs! Overall, a brilliant two days that Sycamore really enjoyed and we would like to thank the team for helping us achieve our Level 1 and Level 2 certificates. Below are photos from the two days.
On Wednesday, Year 6 went to SCAT in Taunton to attend an assembly about science. The assembly was delivered by Dr. Alison from Bristol University. Here are just a few pictures of what we got up to...for a more detailed explanation, please look on our science page!
Sycamore have had an incredibly tough week as they were taking part in their end of Key Stage tests (SATs). On Friday, we had some maths fun and below is just a small selection of photos from their activities. For more information on this, please see our maths page.

Sycamore have celebrated a wonderful National Book Week over the past week. We started the week by designing our class door as a book cover - we decided to decorate it as the front cover of Louis Sachar's There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom. We even used real toilet paper to decorate the door! On Wednesday, we had the amazing published author Ian Thomas in. He has written the Emily and her Pharaoh series and leads an exciting life as a deep sea diver. He told us many incredible stories, with details of some truly awesome encounters with wildlife. In the evening, some of Sycamore Class came back to school as part of the school's bedtime story sessions, which included some spooky stories for the years sixes. The week also included the traditional 'dress-up' day which brought some very interesting outfit choices! See below for some pictures of our truly exciting week. Roll on next year!
Most of Sycamore Class have been taking part in bikeability this week, training for their Level 1 and Level 2 cycling awards. Well done for everyone taking part - I don't think many people envied you cycling around in the freezing cold for two days but you had great fun and enjoyed the process without fussing! We look forward to finding out what level everyone achieved.
