Sunderland to Safari

Safari

Miss Stabler writes:

This half term Year 2 have been learning about the continent of Africa. To help us understand what it is like in Africa we have been reading a non-fiction book called ‘In the Savannah’. This book is about a lion cub and a typical day on the Savannah. The children have become very familiar with the animals that are found there and can tell you lots of information about them. We used our knowledge of lions to write a descriptive piece about how a lioness hunts for her pride’s food. We have also created an amazing information leaflet all about the African elephant. On the final week of term Year 2 will take part in an African themed day which will be full day of crafts and music. We have all enjoyed this topic very much.

We have started this year with a brand new topic 'Sunderland to Safari.' We’re learning about Africa and compare it to our hometown of Sunderland. The children have enjoyed learning about a range of animals that live in the African Savannah. They have created their own information leaflet all about an elephant and have also written about a lion hunting for its prey. To help us to learn about a range of African animals, we have been reading the story 'One Day on our Blue Planet.'
