The Spring Term is a time of year where we usually see the most progress and that 'Lightbulb' moment for those tricky skills and concepts still be to grasped and mastered.


Sycamore Class have many exciting things to look forward to this term including a parents morning when our parents can visit and become partners in learning for the session. We also begin our Secret Agent Training (SAT's) as well have our first class trip of the year to look forward to at Barleylands on the 13th March. In addition to these exciting opportunities we have the Valentines disco, World Book Day and  Parents Evening.

Our themes this term are Master Chef and Home and Away.


The first half term we will be focusing on designing and making a healthy fruit salad and kebab. Each child will be involved in the market research of the favourite fruit from the class, complying a shopping list to purchase the fruit and of course cutting and making the final product whilst saving the best til last.... eating it!


The second half of term we will be focusing on comparing life in Australia to life in England. The children will learn about the differences in climate, habitat and seasons as well everyday life.


In English we will be focusing on writing alternative stories as well as instructions all based around the story of the Disgusting Sandwich written by Gareth Edwards

In Mathematics we are focusing on fractions of amounts and shapes, statistics and continuing with our arithmetic skills including division and short multiplication. 



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 20 minutes a day reading and sharing a book. Reading is the key to open so many doors.

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



In our English lessons wrote 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 was adding and subtracting numbers using a range of strategies including using a number-line, base10 apparatus and vertical methods as well as being introduced to the bar models and partitioning rings.

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.
