Year 2

A warm welcome from our Year 2 team, Miss Trappitt, Miss Tembey, Miss Turner and Miss Gilberthorpe. Miss Trappitt teaches in the classroom at the front of the school whereas Miss Tembey is in the classroom at the back of school. Separating our classes, we have a spacious shared area where Miss Gilberthorpe and Miss Turner work supporting with phonics, maths and reading interventions, using their love of art, the children will be encouraged to use their imagination in a creative way. We also have a quiet area where children can receive more focused learning and allowing children to develop their knowledge and understanding. Each classroom has a quiet area where they can enjoy books, and share them with other children in the class and space for a quiet time and reflection.

Miss TembeyI have been at Travis for 3 years now working in Year 2 for the last 2 years. I love coming to school and working with our children as each day brings new and exciting opportunities. I am really looking forward to this year as we have lots of exciting topics planned! Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my 2 children, exploring new places and going on lots of adventures. I love to read and catch up with family and friends, and supporting my football team - Carlisle United - whenever I can.

Miss Trappitt I joined the Travis Team in January 2018 and it has been amazing. Our colleagues, pupils and families have all welcomed me into the team and I love coming to work each and every day. I am originally from Essex, however, I have been living and teaching in South Yorkshire for 10 years. I love living in South Yorkshire, the countryside is beautiful, and my family and I enjoy exploring different places in all types of weather. I love new experiences and challenges which reflect my belief in having a growth mindset approach to living and learning, at present I am learning to play the guitar.
