In English we been learning the story of Meerkat Mail, it is all about a meerkat called Sunny who goes on a big adventure throughout Africa! Aspen class learnt the story using the Talk for writing actions and following the story map. They then innovated their story by changing some of the characters and the setting. Finally they invented their own story based on whatever they wanted, we even had a unicorn who lost his horn!
We designed our own stamps using African patterns
This half term we are learning about Africa! Year 2 started off investigating all the different continents, we tried food from different countries and even created our own American landmarks. We then learnt about African art, the children loved looking at the different patterns on traditional African clothing. We created our own patterned stamps using string and used them to decorate a tunic!
