‘Together for Excellence’


Year 2 - Sycamore Class

Week beginning 11th October


A big welcome to Alicia who joined our class this week! I know you've already found yourself some lovely friends and have settled in well!


I hope those of you that celebrated Dashain this weekend had a lovely time with their family and friends, near and far.



Our Harvest Festival is this Thursday in class.  Please join us in celebrating our Harvest Festival afternoon at 1:30pm at school. Unfortunately, due to constraints, only 1 adult per family will be able to attend and we regret that no siblings will be allowed.


We are also collecting donations of non-perishable items to give to the Farnborough Food Bank to help support those in the community. If you are able, please send your child in with a donation this week, or when you attend the harvest afternoon. 

This week in Sycamore class


We have been learning about poetry and using Autumn as a stimulus. We will be writing Autumn themed poems next week and we hope to show you some when we are finished! What Autumn things can you think of? What interesting words can you use to describe them?





In Maths, we have begun our addition and subtraction unit.  We have been looking at number sentences which total within 20 and fact families. 


In the afternoon, we have been practising our lines and songs for our harvest festival and have been thinking about the suitability of materials in Science.




Well done to those that, at the time of checking, have had a go at their MyMaths home learning -  Parker, Lottie, Hanna, Nanuma, Charlie, Elicia, Ayana, Brisant, Lexi and Sammy. 


Not that many children have accessed the Oxford Reading Buddy website this week at home.  Please see if you can have a look over the half term holiday and let me know if you are having difficulties accessing it. 


Do remember to use the NEW user names and passwords given out this week (be careful if an old password is saved on the device you are using) and let me know if your reading level is too hard as I can toggle this for you. 


***Star of the week***

Congratulations to Hanna! smiley She has a brilliant knowledge of Autumn and has put it to good use sharing her ideas with her class.  I look forward to seeing what brilliant poetry she will come up with in the coming week!
