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
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.
