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 health need too. 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 newsletter was sent at the beginning of Term 1. We have attached it below if you have misplaced it. Our Term 1 Topic focus is Geography- local area as well as locating the continents and seas around our world. We will also be identifying the capital cities of the countries that make up the UK. We will also be focusing on a particular text to help with our writing and develop number skills in maths. As well as every 3 weeks experiencing and learning through forest schools. Dates for Forest Schools are on the school calendar.
Monday - Outside PE- Athletics, Science and Show and Tell Boxes (6 per week sent on a Fri.)
Home learning also due in. (Common exception words learnt to be used in writing.)
Wednesday - PE- inside- It's also Forest schools day. First session T1 Wednesday 19th Sept 2018. Then every 3 weeks (or thereabouts!)
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 different materials in Science. Our English book to start is.... wrapped up so we will find out about it soon!
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.
