Sycamore Class

Sycamore Class is the home of our lovely Year 2 and 3 children, taught by Miss Newton Monday - Thursday and Mrs Wrigley on a Friday. Mrs O Kane supports the children throughout the week too.

Reading

Reading in Sycamore Class threads through everything we do. We use our reading skills across the curriculum daily for researching and discovering as well as reading for pleasure. Skills are taught through focused guided reading sessions weekly and consolidated with independent comprehension activities. Each child is listened to individually each week. Our thanks goes to Mrs Smith who volunteers her time each week to listening to our children read. Reading books which have been read at home may be changed throughout the week and it is wonderful to see so many of our children taking responsibility for this.

Maths

Maths is taught each morning in Sycamore Class, following objectives from the 2014 National Curriculum. We use the White Rose document for maths, focusing on varied fluency, reasoning and problem solving skill.  We use lots of different practical resources and methods to help us.

PE

PE lessons are on Monday and Friday. The Monday lesson is with a sports coach. PE kit, including footwear suitable for outdoors, should be in school at all times.

French with Mrs Robinson

Each week, our year 3 children,  learn French with Mrs Robinson. This year we have learnt lots of different things including numbers, colours, songs and games and celebrations. We are certainly learning a lot!

Themed Learning


Our learning is inspired by different topics throughout the year. We begin each of our topics with a memorable experience, so far we have Beach Combed, baked halloween cookies and visited our local park. I wonder what we will do next?
