Sycamore - Year 2

Teacher: Mrs Cripps

Additional Support: Ms Middleweek

On 7th February 2018 Year 2 parents were invited to a meeting held at 2.45pm to discuss the statutory testing of Year 2 pupils at the end of the year.  These assessments are commonly known as SATs.

If you have any further questions or queries please speak to your child's class teacher, Miss Cartwright or Mrs Marshall and we will be happy to talk to you.

 

The following presentation was given.

22/01/18 Christmas day on the Terra Nova! We pretended we were Tom Crean and the crew aboard the Terra Nova who spent Christmas day drinking tomato soup and opening letters from home.

16.1.18

Our topic, Polar Lands, is all about the Arctic and Antarctic. We have been learning about the environment there and how it is different from where we live.

We used a poem by Walter De La Mare, 'Snow', to test out our performance poetry skills.

What do you think?

Sycamore Class' African Nature Documentary      30.11.17

We watched a video about the Kenyan Savannah. We then had to get into groups of 3 and decide what we wanted to say about the animals in our section of the video. We needed to use adjectives and adverbs to describe what the animals were like and what they were doing. We chose who would say each bit and then we had to practice reading our sentences so we were perfect!
We made a circle on the carpet in the right order and had a practice altogether. While we were doing this it started snowing!!! smiley
When we knew exactly what we had to do, Miss Fossey and Mrs Cripps videoed the African documentary with us narrating over the top.
We hope you find the documentary interesting and informative. laugh

Sycamore class and Magnolia class joined together to create a rain song and storm music. We were inspired by 'Lila and the secret of rain', which is a story by David Conway and Jude Daly.
We hope you can hear the rain as it starts getting heavier until it is pouring!
See if you can join in the song with us as you watch the video!

Sycamore Class' trip to Greenwich Ecology Park is coming up fast!

Please remember to be in school nice and early on Tuesday 10th October 2017 as we will be leaving school as close to 9.00 as possible!

 

Thank you

Mrs Cripps and Miss Middleweek

Sycamore class went on a walk around Bellingham estate to see how carefully it was being looked after. We have been doing lots of work on looking after our environment and the effect dropping litter has on our world. We were quite surprised at how much litter had actually been dropped on the floor, even though there were quite a few bins around nearby! Some places had been looked after well. See if you can spot them!

Sycamore Class wrote their own version of 'The Treasures' by Clare Bevan. They all wrote about their own treasure from nature and chose which animal would bring each treasure to them. Trying to use a rhyming word was the trickiest bit!

Just a quick reminder that money for our class trip to Greenwich Ecology Park is due in by

Monday 25th September. 

 

Thank you

 

Welcome Back!!

I hope everyone had a great summer and enjoyed their free time. I really enjoyed this summer being with Fred and taking him on his first holiday!

Ms Middleweek and I are really excited about this year and we have lots of fun things planned for the children to make their learning exciting.

 

Our first topic this half term is 'We've got the whole World in our hands'. We will be looking at how Humans have damaged the World, but also what we can do to keep our World safe and clean.

 

Our P.E. days this half term are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure children have plimsoles, a T-shirt and shorts or jogging bottoms.

P.S. - We do outside P.E. even in winter so jogging bottoms might be a good idea!

 

As in Year 1, pupils will need to read every day to help improve their reading. They will have a brand new WOW book which I will collect in once a week. Each week children should be completing their WOW book twice.

 

I look forward to seeing you all again and if anyone needs to speak to us please feel free to come before school starts or at the end of the day.

 

Mrs Cripps and Ms Middleweek
