Class 2 Sycamore

Welcome to Class 2


It's lovely to have the children back! This Autumn term, our topic is 'World War II'. In Literacy, we will be studying 'Grandpa's Great Escape', and using Pie Corbett's Talk4Writing approach to create our own tales! 

In Maths this term, we are focusing on addition and subtraction, and multiplication, using Power Maths and White Rose.  In our afternoon sessions, we are exploring in outdoor learning, learning about parkour (gymnastics) in PE, practising mindful movement and focusing on wellbeing.

In ICT, we are learning to use Class Dojo and Google Classroom, as well as word processing so we are all able to access our learning at home too. 


Thank you for your continued support with the children's learning at home - please keep up reading every day. You might notice that your children have a new green reading record! Please record reading daily using this. There is opportunity for your child to write a book review in their reading record when they have completed a book. When your child reads in school, it will be recorded in a reading folder in the classroom, the reading record will still be checked, so please continue to use it for communication about reading.

On the back cover of the reading record, you will find your child's Sumdog login. We would like Sumdog practice to be completed for at least 30 minutes a week. 



Homework this term will be focussing on establishing - 

Daily Reading (Recorded in reading book & Book Reviews where appropriate)

At least 30 minutes of Sumdog learning

Weekly spellings - children will be taught spelling rules and will be revising these rules as well as spellings each week (we will review each Thursday) - revision tests will be assigned weekly

Children will be expected to log in to Class Dojo regularly to keep up to date with class information and homework.


Further homework will be set when these core home learning aspects are established.


Class Dojo


Class Dojo will be used for home-school communication alongside email. You will be able to view the class story where reminder messages, class information and homework will be posted. 

Your child will be able to login using their individual QR code that has been sent home or use the "home login instructions" that have been sent to each parent via ClassDojo.

If you would like to come and have a talk to me about what is happening in class, please email me - or contact me via ClassDojo.
Thank you for your support,

Joanna Redford-James
