Welcome to Tiger Class
Hello! As you know, our teacher in Tiger class is Mrs Rammell and our teaching assistant is Mrs Williams. Mrs Dunn is our reading assistants, who comes in for an hour every afternoon to support children with their reading.
We are always very busy in Tiger class as we have lots of fun learning to squeeze in! In the morning, we take part in our daily English and Maths lesson and also complete daily SPaG/Phonics sessions. Weekly Guided Reading activities and focus tasks also happen. In the afternoons we have various creative activities such as; topic, PE, swimming, music, Religious Education and PSHE.
We are very lucky because we still get our afternoon play and free fruit! The children also have the opportunity to earn class points in order to have a special class party.
Days to remember
For your information, we have swimming on a Monday each week and PE on a Thursday with the PE coach.
Please remember to bring in your full PE kit the first day back each term and leave it in school for the whole term (unless it gets muddy of course!). Your PE kit will include black shorts and a white t-shirt and black daps or trainers. Jogging bottoms and a jumper are also handy as we do complete PE outdoors as well. A full body swimming costume or swimming trunks are required for swimming each week. These are fun lessons to take part in and something I really enjoy teaching so please remember your kit!
Please also remember that if your child wears earrings, then they MUST be taken out that morning before school - otherwise your child could miss out on this lesson.
Spellings will be given out on Thursday and then tested the following Wednesday.
From the teacher: Mrs Rammell
My name is Mrs Rammell and I am lucky enough to be in Tiger Class again this year! This is very exciting as I love this year group and I am really looking forward to teaching you all!
I joined Barley Close January 2010 and I am very happy here! The children and their families are absolutely lovely and the school has a great feel about it! Although I have really enjoyed teaching Year 3 and Year 1 previously, I have also thoroughly enjoyed Year 2 hence why I have stayed there.
I love teaching and working with children however, I also have lots of other interests! Outside of school, I like to; go shopping, read books, watch films and try to keep fit - although I much prefer eating food than working it off! However, I do enjoy going for walks, bike rides and playing badminton when I have some free time!
The previous summer was particularly exciting for me as I got married over the summer holidays! We were lucky to have the ceremony outside as the sun was shining! It was a fantastic day with our friends and family! For our honeymoon, we went to a few different places in America. AMAZING! We had many different experiences such as; Pearl Harbour, cycling over the Golden Gate bridge, a baseball match and a helicopter ride to name a few...
I also enjoy going to Cornwall, looking around the cobbled street shops and going for walks on the sand dunes - especially as there is a lovely café which serves bacon sandwiches and chunks of cake! Previous "travelling" experiences also include South East Asia a few years ago and this year included the Indian Ocean. What an experience!
Friends and family are so important to me. Therefore I ensure that I catch up with both as often as possible which includes meals in or out, games nights, ‘play time’ with my niece and nephew and any other socials I can squeeze in-between my work!
