Giraffe Class (Reception)

Welcome to our Giraffe class page.

This term we are learning all about traditional tales and we will be spending lots of time immersing ourselves in the story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’ and ‘Jack and the Beanstalk.’ We have the exciting event of our first whole school assembly in December and our key stage Nativity.

A busy term awaits!

Mrs Towers - Giraffe Class Teacher


I'm Mrs Towers and I joined Saint Edmund’s school in 2019 as a Reception class teacher. I also lead RE across the school. You can often find me outside in our Forest School or on a welly walk and I love to scaffold children's learning based on their own interests and ideas.

I enjoy photographing wildlife in my spare time and love camping and coastal walks with my family.
