Welcome to Giraffe Class!
Hello everyone, I would like to introduce you to Giraffe Class. We are a year 5 and 6 class and there are 9 of us. Our names are Kurushiya, Charlie, Leo, Claudia, Christabell, Humaid, Maritsa, David and Oviya.
My name is Selena and I am the class teacher. I am a new teacher to Drumbeat and I have lots of experience, which I look forward to sharing with the school. I have a great team to support me too! Their names are Kathy, Judith and Tammy and we are all looking forward to an engaging and positive year with Giraffe Class.
We have just had a 2 week mini topic called ‘Our Class’ and we had a great time of getting to know each other, and participating in activities to help us get to know our new class. We had fun making giraffes, finding out about our likes and dislikes and learning each other’s names.
Our topic this term is ‘Heroes’ and we will be learning about heroes in real life and super heroes. This will also include people who help us. Our significant author this term is Julia Donaldson, we will be reading ‘The Gruffalo’,’ Monkey Puzzle’ and ‘Room on a Broom’.
We have just begun horse riding this half term and we will be swimming once a week next half term. A freelance artist, Erica will be visiting us for the day on the 5th of November and we will be participating in lots of creative activities throughout the day. We are currently planning our Christmas trip this term and many other exciting activities linked to our topics, which I will update you on closer to the time.
Our Spring term topic will be ‘Amazing world’ and in the Summer it will be ‘Journeys’.
I am looking forward to a great year ahead in Giraffe Class. Please feel free to contact me regarding your child via home contact book, or by calling the school if you want a chat.
Looking forward to a positive year head!
Selena , Kathy , Judith and Tammy
