‘The Brockley Way – Only My Best is Good Enough’


Giraffe – Years 2 & 3 Mrs Goodison & Miss Jarvis


‘Only my best is good enough’

Welcome to Giraffe Class!


Giraffe class is a mixed Year 2 and Year 3 class. We are very active learners and always try our best. Our Class teacher is Mrs Goodison and our Teaching Assistant is Miss Jarvis, both are with us everyday.


In English we use Talk for Writing to help us to know what excellent compositions look like. We use actions and success criteria  to help us compose our own sentences and love to read our own work! We love poetry and have been learning to perform it.

In Maths we use practical apparatus and puzzles to make our learning fun and easier to understand. Each lesson starts with Fast Maths to help us know our number facts quickly. We do Active Maths often and LOVE Maths Weeks – we even spend our dojos on extra maths activities!

Our science topics change each half term We have learnt about Rocks and Soils, Materials and Animals including humans so far this year. Our favourite is always the experiments!

We do Art for half a term and then Design Technology for half a term. The practical work is so important for our learning!

Our PE day is Friday and we come to school in our PE kits. We use Real PE and this means that we understand what our next challenges are and this helps us to improve.

Each term we do History and Geography. Our school trips are often linked to these topic as this helps us to understand how our learning is linked to the real world...

Our Roman Trip to Chesterfield

Year 3 also do French three times a week and have been learning the names of objects, colours and numbers as well as how to have short conversations.

We do RE and PSHCE each week and there is topic for each half term. Here we are exploring emotions in PSHCE... can you guess which ones they are? 

In RE we act out stories form different religions and work out what the messages might be - we have founds loads of similarities!

The Year 3 children in Giraffe class are lucky enough to have Trumpet, cornet or trombone lessons each week - we can even take them home to practice! 


Dojo Rewards for Giraffe Class


As part of an update for the dojo reward system, the children can now redeem (spend) their dojos on treats.


This will start after half term. Giraffe class have selected the following treats (these will be in place until the children decide that they need changing - I will ask them each half term). The children have decided on the 'cost' of each treat based on how many dojos we typically get in a week and how 'precious' the prize is!! These costs may be different from other classes as it was the children's choice!


If your child choices a treat then you will be informed by text so you know that it is true!!
