Welcome to Class 6



Hello everybody, my name is Miss Gladwinfield and I am your teacher next year in Year 2 Class 6. Mrs Hill will also be working with us.

Welcome to class 6


Important Information

  • Class 6 will have PE on Fridays.  Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school as soon as possible.  PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term.


  • In order to keep everyone safe, please stand behind the marked area at drop off and pick up times.  This will ensure all children have space to enter and exit the class safely and apply hand gel. Please wear a face covering if you are able to. Start time is 8.45 and finish time is 3.15.


  • All children will require a water bottle.  Please ensure this contains water only.  Children will be able to refill their bottles in class.



Home Learning

Our class page will be updated regularly with home learning tasks for children who are isolating at home.  These will be linked to some of the work we will be doing in class.  Please feel free to send in pictures of your child’s home learning as we would love to see what they are doing.  You can email me at a.gladwinfield@northcote.liverpool.sch.uk

Look at the following PP –> Mon PP


TASK 1– Use the column method to solve the following calculations:

45 + 10 =

36 + 10 =

21 + 10 =

53 + 10 =

43 + 10 =

64 + 10 =

53 + 10 =

24 + 10 =

62 + 10 =

56 + 10 = 


 TASK 2- Add 20 and 30

54 + 20 =

76 + 20 =

67 + 20 =

36 + 30 =

58 + 30 =

78 + 20 =

67 + 30 =

45 + 30 =


We have also been subtracting using the column method.

We are going to use this method to subtract multiples of 10.


Look at the following PP –>Mon PP


TASK 1– Use the column method to solve the following calculations:

35 – 10 =

46 – 10 =

23 – 10 =

54 – 10 =

47 – 10 =

64 – 10 =

58 – 10 =

26 – 10 =

65 – 10 =

59 – 10 = 


 TASK 2- Subtract 20 and 30

46 – 20 =

72 – 20 =

77 – 20 =

49 – 30 =

55 – 30 =

73 – 20 =

64 – 30 =

45 – 30 =


Please also practise forming numbers correctly and counting in 10s, 2s and 5s with your child. Each child has a TT Rockstar login to help with their times tables. If you need this login to be sent out again, please email me on a.gladwinfield@northcote.liverpool.sch.uk
