Year 2

The Zoolab came into school with a range of animals for the children to learn about.
The children also got the opportunity to hold the animals which they loved!
The children learnt lots of interesting facts about animals such as; where the animals come from, their diet and their behaviour.
After the experience, the children wrote non chronological reports about a chosen animal. The experience allowed the children to have a range of pre taught vocabulary and facts to inform their writing.

Practical Maths
We practised counting in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s using counters to make equal groups.
We also went outside and practised drawing the numbers on a number line and test our partner to see if they knew which number came next.
This was a visual and practical experience for the children to practise their maths skills which they really enjoyed.
