Welcome to our class page! Class 6 2020-21

 

Teacher: Miss Walker

TA: Mrs Scott

Hello!

 

This page will be regularly updated with our work, important information and useful documents and links that you can access from home! I will also be able to be contacted for any queries via our class email: class6@stgeorges.derby.sch.uk (during normal school hours)

 

 

Class 6 one page profile to help you settle in!

Ways to support your child at home:

 

Please find below links to useful documents that can offer some guidance as to how you can support your child at home. They will also give you an understanding of what a year 2 child is expected to know by the end of the year.

You can also find websites that they can go on to, to support their learning and to support your understanding of the year 2 curriculum. Also, you can visit the curriculum pages on the website for more information. smiley 

Busy things:

 

In the event of another lockdown or should your child be self isolating at home, they will need to access their work via the busy things website. Below is the direct link and log in info and on their page they will find their assignments that have been set. 

Reading challenge- each week your name will move if you read 5 times and you will earn 5 housepoints. Each time you reach one of the continents, we will double your housepoints!!

Maths

As you are aware, at school we follow the big maths curriculum. This half term, we are having a big focus on basic number and calculation in order to recover and fill gaps that have been created due to COVID. Below, you can see a picture of our maths area, as well as guidance on how to support your child with their maths homework. The layout of the maths homework is designed in line with our curriculum focus on revisiting old learning, alongside any new learning, in order to keep those plates spinning! Any questions, please feel free to ask me via your child's homework book!

 

Homework help!

Reading and writing

Children will still continue to learn their sounds and reading skills through RWI. Please continue to use the reading books at home to encourage word reading development, as well as understanding the text. 

This half term in writing we will begin by focusing on SPAG. We will then move into our unit of fiction which is a defeating a monster tale, followed by diary writing as a non fiction focus. Below you can find our class text map, it would be great if you could practice this at home!

Jack and the Beanstalk

RE/RSE

This half term in RE, we will be looking at the topics: "beginnings" and then moving on to "signs and symbols". As well as this, we will continue to have our daily acts of worship either as a class or whole school (virtually). 

Take a look below at our RE area in class. 

 

RSE- module one will take us up to Christmas

KS1 Module One: Created and Loved by God explores the individual. Rooted in the teaching that we are created by God out of love and for love, it helps children to develop an understanding of the importance of valuing themselves as the basis for personal relationships.

Please refer to your parent portal that has previously been provided if you would like more information. 

 

Science, History and Geography

This term in science, we will cover a range of topics at a basic/advanced level. The idea is we then revisit these topics again later on in the year at a deeper level. So we will cover everything from plants, to animals, to materials and more!

 

Within history we are looking the first aeroplane flight, and then moving onto Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King. In geography we are having a focus on the world map, exploring the continents and oceans. Below you can find knowledge organisers for these topics to discuss with children at home, as well as examples of our learning journeys. 

CLS- remember at school we have our dragon values that we build into all aspects of our learning.

Music - this year we are exploring the composer Beethoven.
