Welcome to Sycamore's Class page.

The Year 2 team and class would like to welcome you to Sycamore's Class page.

We have had a very busy and exciting first term and the children have settled well into their new routines. For the whole Autumn Term our theme is 'Fire! Fire!' So far, we have learned about the events of the Great Fire of London, the important people involved in the fire and we have even travelled back in time to 1666 to become a witness of the fire!

We worked with Mrs Cawley to create a whole class Tudor house as well as designing and making our own. We had lots of fun!

We were also very excited to have a Grandparents morning where Grandparents were invited in and played some traditional games with us all. Some of the games we played were squares and dots, dominoes and traditional board and card games. We all enjoyed ourselves and would like to thank all the Grandparents that came.

This term we are continuing with the theme 'Fire! Fire!' and learning about London today, how London has changed and how to keep ourselves safe. We are also having Essex Fire Service visit us very soon.... watch this space for the update!



In our English lessons we will be writing personal recounts in the form of diaries, letters and postcards as well as looking at spelling patterns, sentence types and punctuation including exclamation marks, question marks and apostrophes for possession.



Our Maths focus is adding and subtracting numbers using a range of strategies including using a numberline, base10 apparatus and vertical methods, if you would like any help with this remember you are always welcome after school on Wednesdays to pop in and see us.



Year 2 is an important year as we prepare your child for the next exciting stage of their school journey. Here at Ryedene we strive for our learners to reach their full potential, but we cannot do this without your continued support. Please try to spend just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing a book. Reading is the key to open so many doors.

Homework is set every Friday and needs to be returned by Wednesday to ensure it gets marked.
