Miss Stancer is our class teacher. She has a pet tortoise called Martha, a Ragdoll cat called Winnie and a British Shorthair kitten called Penelope or Pea for short. She is a massive Manchester United fan and has a very large collection of Disney films! She likes to go shopping with her family and eating out with close friends. Miss Stancer is fun, caring, bubbly and kind, and encourages us to try our best and dream big!
We are a year 2 class! We have very positive attitudes towards learning and embrace new learning experiences and challenges! We never give up even when something can seem tricky, you will often hear us saying "we can't do it YET" or "just keep trying". We are very hardworking,and understand mistakes are part of learning. We work collaboratively when working in groups or with a partner; we love to share our learning, ideas and experiences with each other. Miss Stancer likes our lessons to be fun, enjoyable and interactive; she encourages us to immerse ourselves in our learning. She has high expectations for us and wants us to achieve the best whilst being the best versions of ourselves we can be! We are kind, caring and thoughtful friends, looking out for one another and comforting each other if we are feeling sad or hurt.
