This week Year 2 visited the Deep! After a long journey we were very excited to see all the under the sea creatures that we had been learning about. We found out all about the turtles that had been saved after they got stuck in a fishing net and we even designed our own turtle!
We have been investigating the impact of plastic in our oceans this week. We read the book 'someone' swallowed Stanley' which is all about a plastic bag in the ocean which gets eaten by lots of different animals. We discussed all about why plastic is bad for the environment and why it is important to recycle. We then decided to help make out school a better place by collecting lots of rubbish from our playground and we have used the rubbish to create a beautiful under the sea collage.
Living, dead or never been alive
Today the children went on on a hunt around school to find things that are living, dead and never been alive.
Talk for writing- Snail and the Whale
In Year 2 we have been learning the story of 'The Snail and the Whale' using our Talk for Writing story map and actions. We practiced them in groups and will be adapting the story by changing the characters, problem and resolution in order to create our own under the sea adventure stories.
