Welcome to Giraffe Class!
Welcome to Year 2, or Giraffe Class. The class is taught by Mrs Tervet and Mrs Root Hicks and supported by Mrs James.
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 in Term 4 so that your child(ren) are confident and ready to become juniors in September this year!
A class newsletter was sent at the beginning of Term 5. We have attached it below if you have misplaced it. Our Term 5 Topic focus is history- Castles and this term we will have the opportunity to visit Dover Castle. We will also be revisiting various aspects of English and Maths skills ready for SATs. As well as every 3 weeks experiencing and learning through forest schools. (Dates to be sent out separately.)
Monday - Outside PE, Science and Show and Tell Boxes (6 per week!!)
Home learning also due in. (Common exception words learnt to be used in writing.)
Tuesday- Computing. Forest schools day. First session Tuesday 23rd January 2018. Then every 3 weeks (or thereabouts!)
Wednesday - DT and Topic. Home learning goes home.
Thursday- Inside PE
Friday - RE. Show and Tell boxes go home (6 per week.)
Talk Partners change weekly.
Home tables (Fruity table names) are changed weekly too.
There are lots of different things to learn in Year 2 and we are excited to be learning about habitats in Science. Our English book to start is '10 things I can do to help my world'.
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- almost all of you are connected- let us know 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 mornings from 8:30am or Mrs Root Hicks is on Friday Mornings.
