Year 2 have really got into the ‘swing’ of this term’s topic of the amazing Amazon.
We began by reading Gorilla by Anthony Browne, where the children used their imaginations to create some magnificent ‘Super Gorilla’ stories. Alongside this we transformed our classroom reading area into a jungle which grew outside of our room with our work on The Jungle Book. The children have created some fantastic jungle animals at home to live in our jungle areas and, at school, Jungle Book characters have been painted and a Kaa snake mobile has been created. Our classroom looks truly wonderful!
Our work has not stopped there. We’ve explored Henri Rousseau’s art and created our own terrific tiger pictures. We’ve written animal riddles and researched facts about jungle animals. Now we are exploring the rainforest and look forward to some special rainforest creatures visiting us very soon!
