Happy New Year!!


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! laugh


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, , so that this can be organised for you.


Happy working smiley

I hope to see you soon!

On Elf Day we had so much fun!!laugh

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 smiley

More Acting The Great Fire of London!! - 11.12.20

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.surprise

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!

14/11/2020 - We have been re-enacting the Great Fire of London

9/11/2020 - We played some awesome word games in phonics

3/11/2020 - We read and collected so many sounds today

2/11/20 - We were so quick at sorting phonemes!

Sycamore Class Story - Every Little Thing

As part of Diversity Awareness Month, we have been sharing our different cultures and looking at stories from other cultures. I, Miss Burton, chose to read the children a story that is related to my Jamaican background. Every Little Thing is adapted by Cedella Marley, daughter of Bob Marley. The story is based on Bob Marley's famous song, Three Little Birds. Sycamore Class enjoyed learning the chorus and singing along with me when telling the story.
We hope you enjoy it too!
