Welcome to Giraffe Class!
Welcome to Year 2, or Giraffe Class, as we are known! The class is taught by Mrs Gibbs Murray and Mrs Dove and supported by Mrs James, Mrs Lewis Webber, Mrs Coster and Mrs Anderson.
In Year 2 we like to work hard and have lots of fun too! We aim to build on the progress the children have made so far in the infants so that they are confident and ready to become juniors next year.
As mentioned in the class newsletter, days to remember are:
Monday - PE and Spellings
Tuesday - Times tables ( 10, 5 and 2 with division)
Wednesday - Art and D&T
Thursday - PE
Friday - Number Bonds Challenge
Thank you very much for all your help at home with learning weekly spellings, times tables and number bonds, as well as reading. Your support really does make a difference. Please try to encourage maths reasoning skills and real life problem-solving activities as these are our Summer term maths focus. Thank you in advance for helping your children to read and spell the Key stage 1 common exception words which were sent home recently.
This term in Science we are learning about living things and their habitats. In History we are finding out about castles and knights and the children are excited to get started on the challenge of constructing their own castle at home! During the May 'half term' holiday Leeds Castle are holding Medieval jousting events and if you were able to take your child along it would be a lovely culmination of our topic work and would reinforce their learning as well as being a great day out for the family.
In Term 6 Geography lessons we will be studying an area in Scotland and comparing it to where we live through the stories of Katie Morag.
We always welcome parent helpers, so please speak to us if you would like to come in and help.
On Thursday 22nd June we will be visiting Wingham Wildlife park to explore animal habitats as this term's Science topic continues into term 6 .
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do come in and have a chat or speak to us on the playground.
