Welcome to the Year 2 Team
Sycamore & Willow
Mrs Cooper, Mrs Garrett and Mrs Mason warmly welcome you to Year Two.
Our whole school theme for the Summer Term is...
'Peace & Conflict, Justice & Equality - A Fair and Peaceful World'.
In Year 2 our topic will be called 'Rags and Riches'. We will be looking at life from both ends of the spectrum in predominantly the Victorian period. We have lots of exciting, engaging and creative learning opportunities planned for the Summer term ahead which have been shared on our Topic Web.
This term are curriculum drivers for Peace and Conflict are:
These are some of the things we will learn about:
Homework will be set weekly and consist of daily reading, weekly spellings to learn for a spelling test and a maths activity. Sometimes these will be paper based and other times using online programs like Showbie and Purple Mash.
PE is on a Monday and Wednesday.
A full kit is required and left in school until the end of the half-term.
During the winter months a plain tracksuit is recommended as we do go out in all weathers!
We are always looking for extra people to help out in class so please let us know if you have some spare time and are interested in doing this. - At the moment, due to Covid-19 restrictions we cannot have parent helpers in school, but please don't put off letting us know if you are interested in helping and we will be in touch as soon as legislation and safety allows.
We will update the website and our Social Media pages with photos of work that we do. Please keep checking in.
Parkdale 2 Willow & sycamore 2020-21
[This is a private group]
Parkdale Sycamore @ParkdaleSycamo1
The aim of our lovely, motivating display is to encourage all the children to read every day at home to a grown up!
There is a sliding scale of rewards. 15 readers = 1 caterpillars
20 readers = 2 caterpillars
25 readers = 3 caterpillars
30 readers = 4 caterpillars
Once the flower is filled then the children can have 5 minutes extra playtime...
Come on 2 Sycamore you can do this!
