In Year 2 we have just started our new project Creature Comforts!
After a busy day at the zoo, the children were asked to help Marwell out. The zoo is expecting 60 new animals and they have not even begun to work out what kind of enclosures to build. Each child chooses an animal to become the expert keeper of. The children busily try to figure out what kind of animals they are, what they eat and what kind of habitat they will need by exploring their features and researching them using secondary sources. They will create a model to represent their animal, making sure each limb is proportionate and the pattern reflects the skins, the lines express the folds in the body and the texture is an accurate representation, before creating a model enclosure of the habitat their animal needs to survive. They will then create a digital drawing to add to their fact file notice board to inform visitors about the animal at the mini-zoo.
Welcome to Year 2!
We hope you are having a lovely summer. We are looking forward to seeing you again in September!
