Welcome to Sycamore Class!
My name is Miss Freeman and I teach Sycamore Class. We are very lucky to have Mrs Pilbrow helping with our learning. Sycamore is the middle class of the school and teaching year 2 and year 3 children.
During this time Year 2 will be revisiting some of the key areas of English and Mathematics in preparation for SATs. We will also work through some of the SATs past papers so that the children are familiar with the format. The actual SATs will take place on the 4th week of term, beginning on Monday 15 May.
Towards the end of half-term we are going to be building our own floating models and making some collage art. Closer to the time a note will go out in the newsletter about bringing in cardboard boxes, polystyrene, plastic bottles and old magazines.
Please note that this term we will also be having a Tuesday P.E. session.

Please make an effort to hear your child read and talk to them about their understanding of what they have read every day. Your child’s reading book and yellow reading record should be coming into school and going home every day. This book is designed to be a record of every time your child reads with an adult during the year. When your child reads to you please record it here, even if it wasn’t their school reading book. Children have time to change finished reading books every morning.
The spelling lists your child is given may be based on target words for their age group, topic words, or words they know but forget to use in their writing. It is important to practice spellings and tables with your child daily alongside reading. This will help them to feel prepared for weekly tests and allow them to commit what they are learning to memory.
