Welcome to Class 6!
Class teacher: Mr Llewellyn
Teaching Assistant: Miss Wade
The children in Class 6 have made an absolutely fabulous start to Year 2 and we have learned so much already! Our class teacher is Mr Llewellyn and we are very lucky to have Miss Wade helping us with our learning sometimes as well. We will also be taught by Mrs Barker, the other Year 2 teacher, for Maths. We have also begun PE lessons with our sports coach, Olly, on a Thursday afternoon.
In English our topic is ‘Traditional Tales’. We have already started reading ‘Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs’ and we are enjoying the examining the evil character of the Queen considerably. We are excited to read ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’ and ‘Hansel and Gretel’ later on in the term, which will inspire our writing even more. We are going to aim to improve our spellings through using ‘Spelling Shed’ in school and at home.
Class 6 are well underway in their learning of place value. We have been undertaking lots of reasoning and problem-solving activities in our lessons to ensure we gain a deeper understanding of the topic at hand. We are excited to learn about addition and subtraction and shape and measure later on in the term, which will be linked to our different subject areas, in order to apply our learned mathematical skills to real-life situations.
We are going to aim to improve our already amazing knowledge of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables in a fun and engaging way through using ‘Times Table Rock Stars’ in school and at home. Class 6 have absolutely loved practicing their times tables in this way, which is helping them to build fluency in their multiplication – a remarkable and important skill to have!
We are very excited to start learning about homes of the past in History! We are going to explore how people lived over one hundred years ago and live like a Victorian for a day.
We have a very busy term ahead but we have all risen to the challenge of Year 2 and we are very excited for the year ahead!
