Welcome to Year 2


Year 2 Sycamore

This week's Gem Of The Week is Brooke Richardson.


We dressed up as mini beasts in preparation for our work on Eric Carle.

To the special ladies in our lives! Happy Mothers Day!

 Our last session of Forest School was so much fun as we invited our grown ups to join us.  

We experienced all sorts of different things:

teamwork, perseverance, problem solving, cooperation, kindness, the cold, mud, quality time with loved ones, humour, tolerance and best of all............ hot chocolate!!!   Thanks Mrs Fraser-Rees!

We had a great time in the forest helping the Nook Nooks to collate information and display our findings using tally charts! The snow was an added bonus too!!!

Sycamore's Daily Mile

At the end of November, firemen visited us to teach us about fire safety.  They also helped us to understand why it was difficult to put out The Great Fire of London with only buckets of water!  There are some pictures below.

An Eye on London

Look at our amazing work on London that we've done so far!

One of the things we're working on in maths at the moment is counting in 2's, 5's and 10's.  Not only do we have to do it forwards, we have to do it backwards too!  Why not have a go at home?

We made and then tried marmalade tarts this week because marmalade is Paddington's favourite food! (2.11.17)

Year 2 had a great trip to Ilkey at the end of last half term.  We watched a brilliant performance of The Tiger Who Came To Tea.  We looked closely at how the actors used their bodies and voices on the stage.  We're now ready to start our own rehearsals for our Christmas performance, hopefully using some of the things we picked up from the actors.

Our Walk Around Long Lee!

On our walk around Long Lee we saw Long Lee doctors' surgery. We also saw the road sign for Moss Carr Road and a car park. We also saw the shop called Southams which was far away from the road. On the opposite side of Long Lee Lane we saw the chemist that had a blue sign above the door. We also saw houses and noticed that some had names and some had numbers. We thought carefully about road safety and remembered to stop, look and listen every time we had to cross the road.

Congratulations to our two new School Councillors

Our Library Day is Monday.

P.E days are Mondays and Wednesdays.

These are our common exception words that we call CEW words.  We test the children on how to fluently read and spell these words on a regular basis.
