Welcome to the Sycamore Class Page
We received a letter from Safiya, a safari guide who needed our help. She could not find some of the safari animals on the reserve and asked if we could help her find them.
We got our binoculars ready and stepped into Kenya! It was boiling hot!
Although some of us were scared of the big, strong animals, we explored the safari reserve and as a class we were able to find all of the animals. Some of them we had never heard of before!
It was a lot of fun!
A joyful Spring song celebrating the simple pleasure that can be taken in appreciating the natural world, sung by Sycamore Class.
Sycamore thoroughly enjoyed making chocolate Easter nests before we broke up for the Easter holidays.
I mean, who doesn't love a delicious chocolatey treat?
We had fun following a simple easy recipe that allowed us to practice our Maths skills of measuring and encouraged us to work as group.
It was so much fun we forgot to take many pictures, sorry!
We loved watching 'The Wishgranter' video below.
After watching the video we retold the story section by section and had some opportunities to act as well.
In each group one of us started off being the bored wishgranter. We thought about the characters feelings and how to show that in our facial expressions. When the man and womans wish was not granted they would have been sad and disappointed, the man who wished for money would have been very excited when he received it, and the man, woman and wishgranter would be cheerful and pleased when the man and womans wish was granted.
During Science week we enjoyed completing many different activities. We enjoyed combining Maths and Science to learn about nets of a cube, make cubes and try to build the tallest freestanding tower.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back to school on Monday 8th March.
Year two gates will open at 8:45am. Afternoon gates will open at 3:20pm ( Mon-Thurs) and 2:20pm on Fridays.
Please watch the video below as Ms Newton explains new entry instructions.
During lockdown, we had a lot of fun in the Year 2 bubble. We completed Joe Wicks exercises on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We would also dance and enjoyed doing fun Go Noodle exercise routines. In pairs, we practiced spelling our high frequency words using foam letters, scrabble letters and play dough. It was good to see our fellow peers in Teams meetings online and we had a lot of fun during World Book Week. We used paint and our hands to create Cat in the Hat paintings. Miss Burton also read us the book The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss.
Happy New Year to you all and to your families.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to see you all and hear about your Christmas break at this time but I hope you have had a lovely holiday and that you are ready to do lots of learning!
Although school is closed there will still be lots to do.
I will be uploading different work tasks to the 'School Closure' button at the top of the page.
Also, you will soon receive login information for your Microsoft Teams account where I will be setting you assignments for you to complete, which you can win points for if you try your best!
If you do not have access to a computer and require a printed home learning pack, please call the office or email our class email address, firstname.lastname@example.org , so that this can be organised for you.
I hope to see you soon!
We had so much fun before breaking up for the Christmas holidays! All of Year 2 enjoyed playing PE games outside together, some with a Christmas twist!
Decorative Christmas hats were made for our Christmas dinner and we had an AWESOME Christmas party!
We danced, sang, ate, drank and played games like pass the parcel and pin the nose on Rudolph. It was a fantastic way to end the year with our Sycamore class family.
On Elf Day we had so much fun!!
We sung and danced to Christmas songs, did our advent calendar, completed word-searches, coloured and did different activities across Year 2.
We thoroughly enjoyed playing a Grinch game with Mr Walker, making a reindeer craft and doing a Science experiment with Miss Burton. Santa Claus had sent Miss Burton a letter with instructions for the awesome Science experiment we did - mini glitter explosions!!
It was a brilliant festive day
Sycamore Class enjoyed singing and spreading a little Christmas cheer! ✨
We hope you enjoy and sing-along with us! 😁
Merry Christmas! 🎄❤️
We acted out the story of The Great Fire of London to help us retell it in our writing.
We pretended we were sleeping in bed when we awoke to the smell of fire!
Everyone was so shocked and scared.
Historians believe the fire started because nobody checked the fire had been put in the bakery on Pudding Lane. Oh no!
Houses were built close together so the fire spread quickly.
The people passed buckets of water to try to put out the fire.
Terrified people escaped in boats on the River Thames.
The fire burned for 4 days!
