Value in Everyone

Year 2

In September, Year Two were introduced to our autumn topic 'All About Africa' by using their self-made passports to take a flight with Jarrow Cross Airlines to fly to Africa. We went to Flamingo Land to see all of the African animals up close and watched the sea-lions perform tricks.  We read Handa's Surprise and produced lots of descriptive writing and tasted all of the exotic, African fruits that were in the story.

In October, we read Meerkat Mail and learnt how to use commas in a list.  We then focused on the features of non-fiction texts, such as sub-heading, glossary, captions etc, then produced own fact files about an African Animal.  We also had Judo and Tennis coaches come in to school to teach us about the sports.

In November, we became poop detectives and examined some African animals' poo!  The children had to identify whether the poo belonged to a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore by using clues.  As part of anti-bullying week, we visited the cinema to watch Ferdinand.  It was a great film with a lovely message about being kind to others and being proud to be unique.
