Otter Class

Welcome to the Otter Class page


Otter class is our year 2 class taught by Mrs Gullefer on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and by Mrs Barden on Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Cutmore (HLTA) covers Planning, Preparation and Assessment time (PPA) time and supports maths on Wednesdays. Mrs Olphin offers TA support in a range of lessons.


Welcome back to the final half-term of the year! Our topic is called Trading places, Britain or Brazil. We will be looking at maps to locate Brazil and will be comparing the geography of the country with England.

Our topic is well underway now. The children have enjoyed researching facts about Brazil and making comparisons with England. They have written fantastic poems about animals indigenous to Brazil. Today the children made Carnival masks.

In maths we have been telling the time accurately and are extending our knowledge of fractions.

It is unbelievable that the school year is drawing to a close, it has flown by! It has been a pleasure teaching such lovely children.  They have matured so much over the year and will be ready for the fresh challenges they will meet next year.

Don't forget to join us in church on Friday 2st July at 9.30  for the leavers' service, if you can. Bring tissues just in case as it is usually quite emotional cool

The children really enjoyed our movie afternoon, which was a treat for their excellent attitude and effort in SATs week at school. It was such a hot day, they seemed to enjoy changing into their own clothes and enjoying some ice cold lollies!

We had a fantastic day visiting Woburn Safari Park this week with Squirrel and Hedgehog classes.

First of all we walked around and were lucky enough to see the Squirrel Monkeys being fed. Then we saw sea lions, wallabies, lemurs and many more. Then we went to a parrot show. We were amazed by their beautiful colours. After that we went on the coach safari. We were so lucky to see tigers, tiger cubs, wolves black bears up close! Then  

we drove through the monkey enclosure and two sat on our coach roof! We also saw antelope, giraffes, zebras and rhinos. Thank you to the parent helpers. We had a wonderful day. All the photos can be seen on Hedgehogs's page.

The children worked in groups to design and make these two settings showing the difference between urban and rural scenes.
Today, 23rd May, the whole school worked in a SALAD style (speaking and listening all day). The children loved it as no writing was done. We made books telling the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, where children selected and sequenced pictures and text. Then in maths we were finding out about the properties of 3D shapes and we made tetrahedrons. This afternoon we had PE and music. Photos to follow shortly😀
