‘A Values School’


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 experience learning both inside and outside the classroom with visits locally to the Marston Vale Millennium Country Park, Woburn Safari Park and further afield as we visit the National Space Museum in Leicester. In the summer term we are visited by Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue to teach us important lifesaving skills and raise awareness of fire safety in the home.

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. Children are given the opportunity to participate in multi-sport events organised by Redbourne Upper School and in the summer term we enjoy cooling down in our very own school swimming pool with regular lessons - when the weather permits!

Our curriculum in Year 2 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. Each half term the children are introduced to a new topic and this is always an exciting week with plenty of adventures and opportunities to dress up!

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 Online Art Gallery


During Muck, Mess and Mixtures Year 2 have been learning about the style of different artists, in the develop stage of our topic we learnt about their lives and their work. During innovation the children took a photograph of an object and chose three artists to recreate the picture in their style. Can your child tell you about the artists they have chosen? Please email us any feedback on the children's brilliant work so that we can add your comments to our display.
