Welcome to Giraffe Class!
Welcome to Year 2, or Giraffe Class. The class is taught by Mrs Tervet and Miss Cook and supported by Mrs James. We are fortunate to have another adult to work with a child who has health need too as well as work with all children in our class. Her name is Mrs Hull.
In Year 2 we like to work hard and have lots of fun too! Our learning is mixed with creative opportunities, using our developing outside area (we share this with Elephant Class) and more formal learning. We aim to build on the progress the children have made so far at School so that your child(ren) are confident and love learning!
A class vocabularly newsletter was sent at the beginning of Term 2. It should be available in the front office if you want further information. Our Term 2 Topic focus is History- A famous person from History as well as historical events linked to rememberance day. We will also doing a whole school focus thinking about 100 years since the end of WW1. Our text has changed having thoroughly enjoyed finding out about Bob. We continue to develop our place value knowledge as well as understanding tallies and times table mastery. In PE we are going to be doing some travelling in gymnastics and recalling ball skills learnt in Term 1. Also every 3 weeks experiencing and learning through forest schools. Dates for Forest Schools are on the school calendar and there will be 2 this term before Christmas. (Weds 7th Nov & Tues 4th Dec)

If you want to come in and see what we do in Year 2 (and are a Parent/Carer/Grandparent) We'd love your help! Please speak to us or send a email to the office.
Our behaviour ladder is an important part of our day to help us with the expectations. As well as this, we will keep you updated with our daily tasks and learning using Class Dojos with photos of our learning and celebrations in Giraffe Class- let us know if the link didn't work and we'll get updated links. Don't forget to share creations or play you're doing at home on either the stories on Dojo or on Purple mash. Both of these are secure and not visible to anyone other than the teachers.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do come in and have a chat or speak to us on the playground. Mrs Tervet is on the playground Tuesday & Miss Cook will be on the playgrounds on Friday mornings from 8:30am.
