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. Have a look outside there have been some exciting changes already this term. 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 4. It should be available in the front office if you want further information. Our Term 4 Topic focus is History where we will be researching and learning about The Great Fire of London. We will have a DT focus too, where we will make houses in the style of those from 1666.
In PE we are going to be taking part in multi-skill activities. We will also be taking part in forest school too so remember to pack warm clothes and waterproofs. Dates for Forest Schools are on the school calendar. 12th March and 24th April 2019.
Monday - PE, Science and Show and Tell Boxes (6 per week sent on a Fri.)
Home learning also due in. (Focused No nonsense spelling words sent home)

In Science this term we are learning about Plants. We have even set up an experiment to see what the best conditions are for growing cress.
Our English book for Term 4 is.... The Robot and the Bluebird by David Lucas. This book is a beautifully illustrated story with themes of friendship and resilience.
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.
