Spring Term 1: Rainforests

This term, Sycamore class will be learning about amazing rainforests.  We will learn about rainforests from around the world, how they are made up and the diversity of life that they support.  In this topic, we'll explore the places in the world you can find rainforests and why they are so important to the enviroment, globally.  

Our key text for the English this term is Return of the Wild by Helen Scales.  We will base much of our English work this term around themes from this fabulous no-fiction text.

Performance Poetry

This term, Sycamore class have been looking at performance poetry.  We watched videos of some of the world's finest poets performing their poems and studied their techniques.  Then we replicated these techniques in our own performances.  Finally, we wrote our own performance poems and shared them for the class.  

Our poems were linked to our text of the term, Return of the Wild, focused on the burrowing parrots of Chile.
