Welcome to Gwenver Class

Gwenver class is a mixed class comprising of 23 children. Pupils are taught by Mrs Cross on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs King on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. In addition, they are joined by two brilliant teaching assistants; Mrs Butterfield and Mrs Ginty. Learning in Gwenver class is inspired by topics that engage and enthuse children across all curriculum subjects.
 
 
 
Summer Term 2 - 2018

In this Unit pupils will look at the lives of two very important British queens, Victoria and Elizabeth II.

 

They will compare their lives and look at how this country has changed in the years between their reigns. Pupils will find out about important traditions associated with the monarchy such as coronations, weddings and the Trooping of the Colour. They will look at the different countries that the queen rules over and how these too have changed over the years.

 
 
Reading, Homework and Timetable:

P.E. will be on a Monday and Wednesday so pupils will need their P.E kits on those days, and swimming will continue on Fridays.
Spelling tests will be on a Tuesday, please remember to practise your spelling list each week.
Keep reading as often as possible at home, every day is fantastic but we would like to see a minimum of four signed entries in their reading record each week.
Reading with an adult is very beneficial as they can discuss tricky words, hidden meanings and simply share in the delight of a good story! We try our best to send home a 'Take Home' with each book, this is to give you a guide as to what sort of questions you could be asking your child.

We will set pupils in Year 2 homework on a Friday, to be returned by Thursday. If your child hasn't had their homework checked, then this is because they didn't hand their book in. This shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes.
 
 
Your child needs to have a named water bottle in school every day. We ask that the children only drink water in school.
Summer Term Homework
Over the next few weeks, we would like the children to produce posters, stories, newspaper articles, poems, songs, raps etc linked to our topic 'The 2 Queens'. Which Queen will it be, Queen Victoria or Queen Elizabeth ll? 
 
They also need to learn their 2, 5 & 10 times tables. They will need to recall the answer within a few seconds and in any order. We are now extending this to the 3 times tables.
