Giraffes - Year 2

Hello Giraffes


It is lovely to be back in school. 

Your teacher is Mr Newson. On Wednesday afternoon Year 2 have PE and Music, which will be taught by Mr Durrant and Mrs Gower.


Don't forget we have PE on a Wednesday - so come to school wearing your PE kit.


You can contact us using our class email







Our new Giraffes - Jengo, Kibibi and Kiara have some interesting facts about themselves to share with you. . . 


We know that giraffes mainly feed on acacia trees, but did you know that they use their long tongues to reach past the thorns to pick off the leaves behind?


Our giraffes are a Reticulated Giraffe.  What makes them special is their distinguished 'net-like' pattern of their coat.



Giraffe's habitat is the dry savannahs, in sub-Saharan Africa.  Our giraffes can be found in Kenya, Ethiopia ad Somalia.  Can you find these countries in Africa?











What are we learning about this term?

We are looking forward to an exciting Spring term and here is an overview of our learning.

English homework will be sent out on a Friday. Maths homework will be sent out on a Monday. Children have 2 weeks to complete their homework.

Reading is so important. Your child will have 2 reading books, which will be changed every Friday. Please read with your child as much as possible and record in the orange reading diary. Please make sure reading books are at school every day because we also hear the children read in school. Reading is also for pleasure so here is a list of books you can share with your child.
