Welcome to Sycamore!

Welcome to Sycamore!

Year 2 is an exciting and interactive year of learning. Children in Year 2 become more independent and explore a wide curriculum through topic based learning. We embrace an active curriculum throughout the year and the children take part in Forest school activities in a variety of curriculum areas including Literacy, Maths, Art and PE. Our aim is to enhance the children’s experiences and allow them to think and solve problems in different ways.


Each half term the children are introduced to a new topic through a WOW! start and this is always an exciting week with plenty of adventures and the odd opportunity to dress up! The curriculum continues to provide opportunities for our children to develop their Literacy and Numeracy skills as well as problem solve and work in small groups to present information to our school friends and parents during Innovation weeks. This will take place online and allow children to showcase their learning to family with the opportunity to receive feedback.


We encourage lots of class discussions and support our children in understanding and managing their feelings to ensure they feel happy, safe and ready to learn!


Our Current Topics are:

Autumn 1

Muck, Mess and Mixtures

Autumn 2

Moon Zoom!

Spring 1


Spring 2

The Secret Garden

Summer 1

Pounce, Roar, Wriggle and Crawl

Summer 2

Land Ahoy!


Children are then given opportunities through the curriculum to develop important skills and they then apply these skills during Innovate Week. This year we have made our own art gallery and invited parents in to view our work, created animal habitat boxes and presented them to our peers, invited Year 1 to our classroom to discover and test out knowledge of space and we finish the Year with a Pirate assembly for Year 2 parents to showcase our Pirate dance and sea shanties.

Year 2 children are given a piece of fruit daily, which they eat at playtime.
