Class 6- Year 2

Welcome to Class 6!

Class teacher: Mr Llewellyn

Teaching Assistant: Miss Wade, Miss Wilson & Miss Van Niekerk

Class 6 have made an absolutely fantastic start to Year 2 and we have learned lots already. Our class teacher is Mr Llewellyn and we are so lucky to have Miss Wade and Miss Wilson helping us with our learning as well. We are also taught by Mrs Barker, the other Year 2 class teacher, for English and Maths. We really enjoy PE lessons with our sports coach, Olly, French lessons with our languages specialist, Madame Gosney and gymnastics with Miss Craggs.

In English our topic is, ‘Tale as Old as Time’. We have already started reading ‘Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs’ and we are enjoying examining the wicked character of The Evil Queen considerably. We are so excited to read ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’ and ‘Hansel and Gretel’ later on in the term, which will inspire our writing even more and strengthen our understanding of why we write and who for. We are going to continue to aim to improve our spelling through using ‘Spelling Shed’ in school and at home.

Class 6 have learned lots in Maths so far this year. We have learned how to identify the value of any digit within a number and how to partition numbers in more complex ways. We are going to continue to aim to improve our 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 ‘Our Village’ in Geography. We will be learning how to follow coordinates on a map, as well as construct our own maps using detailed keys. Class 6 are also excited to start learning about the difference between human and manmade geographical features and see which feature is the most popular in Wynyard. We will also be surveying how we travel to school and investigate why some modes of transport are more popular than others; considering our locality.

Class 6 have a very busy term ahead but we have all started to rise to the challenge of Year 2 and we are very excited for the learning ahead.
