Class 6 (Y2)

Click here to go to Class 6's blog where you can find the most up to date information about what we have been up to in class!

Welcome to Class 6's page!

 

Your teacher is Miss McGowan.

Your TAs are Mr Peters and Miss Morton.

 

Here you will find some key information about our class and a link to the class blog where you will find weekly updates on what we have been up to.

 

Timetable: We begin each morning with reading - this is the time your child will change their home reading book if necessary. Then we have an in-class assembly, English and Power Maths lessons before lunchtime.

In the afternoons, we study the foundation subjects such as Art, Science, History, Geography, Music etc.

We finish every day with a story.

 

Reading: As well as reading regularly at school, children are expected to read as often as possible at home too. This might not always be your reading book, but reading diaries can still be signed so children can move up the Reading Challenge! This is especially important in Year 2 to support their progress through KS1.  Children should have their book in school every day.

 

Spellings: Children will be given spellings to learn every week. It is important to practise them regularly so they are ready for their spelling test on a Friday. Children need to bring their spelling book to school every Friday please.

 

Homework: Homework will be set online this year and is accessed through Microsoft Teams. All children will take part in Computing sessions at school so that they know how to log on independently and how to find their homework. Logins will be sent home with your child once these lessons have taken place.

 

Times Table Rockstars: In Year 2, all children have access to Times Table Rockstars. https://play.ttrockstars.com/

Login details will be stuck on the inside of their reading records. Please log on and practise as much as you can. Quick recall of times table facts is important when working mathematically.

 

PE:  We have two PE lessons per week on Monday and Wednesday.

Our PE kit is: a white PE top, tracksuit bottoms (no leggings please), trainers, socks and a waterproof jacket/coat.   PE kits must be kept in school until half term in a drawstring PE bag. Our sessions of PE this year will take place mostly outside. 

For any help with home learning please send an email to: class6@harwoodpark.rochdale.sch.uk.

Good Morning everyone! 😊

 

Here are the activities we would like class 5 and 6 to complete today. 

**Please can children and adults leave a comment on the blog to let us know how you are getting on with home learning and so we know who can/cannot access the blog. Thank you!**

 

Children can begin their morning with ‘Joe/The Body Coach’ who is posting live 30 minute PE lessons on YouTube every morning at 9am.  Follow the link on his page: https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html

 

English – On Monday you came up with adjectives to describe Mrs Twit's appearance and personality, on Tuesday you created expanded noun phrases with these adjectives and on Wednesday you put these into sentences with conjunctions to describe Mrs Twit.  Today, we would like you to put all of this together to make a character description for Mrs Twit (just like we did in class for Mr Twit). Don't forget your super 6! - Capital letters, full stops, sit letters on the line, cursive handwriting, finger spaces and careful spelling. Remember to also use commas if listing more than one adjective and include conjunctions in your sentences.

 

Reading – Read a few pages of one reading book and use the comprehension questions linked on the class page to check children’s understanding. 

 

Maths fluency – Play hit the button again but practice your 2's 3's, 5's and 10's multiplication this time.  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button                  

                   

Maths – Lesson four – Scales SATS questions – Children to answer questions 1-6 on the worksheet for Thursday. If you are stuck or can’t remember how to work out the answer, don’t worry! Just have a go and try your best!

 

Spellings – Play some games to practice your spellings.

Other ways to keep busy today: 

  • Try some guided meditation - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtYIQiXyrsE
  • If the sun is shining again see if you can help an adult do some gardening!
  • Because children are being encouraged to stay at home, some are creating rainbows to put in their window for others to spot! If you haven't already, create your own rainbow and display it in your window to spread some joy!
