Year 2 – Sycamore & Willow

Welcome to Sycamore and Willow!

Year 2


Mrs Moss, Mrs Burge, Mrs Carlisle, Mrs Niwaz and Mrs Cooper warmly welcome to you Year Two. In Year 2 our Curriculum Values as well as the British Values are evident in everything we do. Wherever possible we integrate resilience, pride, collaboration, exploration, creativity and innovation into our learning.


We have an exciting year ahead planned. You can have a sneaky preview of some of our photos from last year, to give you an idea about adventures that may lie in store...


Our topic this term is 'The Great Fire of London', so keep your eyes peeled for the information about our re-enactment afternoon and the burning of houses!  


​The children have settled well and are rising to the challenge of being Year 2's.  


We hope that you find some motivating homework on our Homework Menu and we look forward to sharing it with the class at the end of the half-term.  It can be found in the Homework books.  Children will read in school every week so please ensure they have their reading book and diary with them everyday. We please ask that you continue your good work in supporting us, by reading together at home regularly.  The children love to receive house points for this and we give them out on a weekly basis - they can soon mount up!  


You can visit here and explore exciting class news, pictures of things we’ve done and more.
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let us know?

2 Willow are aiming to complete their 'Reading Mission'. The aim is to get all the children reading every day at home to a grown up!

There is a sliding scale of rewards. 15 readers = 1 astronaut

                                                         20 readers = 2 astronauts

                                                         25 readers = 3 astronauts

                                                         30 readers = 4 astronauts

Once the rocket is filled then the children can have 5 minutes extra playtime...


Come on 2 Willow you can do this!


Mrs Carlisle is very proud of the improvement so far...keep going!
