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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
