Author Visit


On Thursday 27th February, the children were fortunate enough to have a visit from famous author Ross Montgomery.

During guided reading sessions all this week, Sycamore class have been reading extracts from 'Max and the Millions' in preparation for Ross's visit.

Ross spent a session with Year 3,4 and 5 talking about his inspiration for this particular story, as well as answering questions about how he started writing and the challenges he has faced during his career.

Shrove Tuesday

On Tuesday 25th February , Sycamore class, along with all the other classes,  walked down to the square in Wallingford to watch the annual Pancake Race.

It was exciting to see the runners warming up, especially those who had come in fancy dress in this year's theme of Toy Story.

Great support and cheering encouraged our Year 6 children to run as fast they could whilst tossing their pancakes!

Congratulations must go to Mr Wilcox who came Joint First!

Sycamore class are really looking forward to their chance to participate next year.
