Welcome to SYCAMORE Class
My name is Miss Whittick and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I am looking forward to getting to know your children, finding out their skills and abilities, and to helping them to reach their potential. In Year 5 we promote independence, self-awareness and taking responsibility for ourselves and our learning. We have an atmosphere of positivity, enjoyment of learning, and pride, which is brought about by recognition, praise and celebration of achievements, however small or large, academic or personal. We conduct lessons both within the classroom and out in the school grounds. We have a lovely outdoor space at Bletchingley School and we make full use of this, to encourage respect for the environment, for academic learning, and space to develop socially and emotionally. We love learning outside and use the varied areas to help develop practical learning of concepts in Maths for example, or investigations to promote enquiry in Science, as well as Geographical knowledge, Art, and inspiration for creative writing. If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to do so and I will endeavour to help in any way I can.
