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.

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!

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😀
