  1. What is a habitat?

    June 20, 2017 by Mr Rossiter

    This week in 2R, we have been learning all about animals and their habitats. We were amazed to find out about some of the incredible things that animals do to survive and we particularly enjoyed looking at examples of camouflage in nature.

    Here’s some of our work from this week (which we were really proud to show off to our friends!) 

    Ava and Bailey explored how polar bears and birds find ways to live in their habitats. Ava: “the polar bear’s fluffy fur keeps him warm.” 
    Summer and Paula focused on the adaptations that lions have to help them survive. Paula: “lions have sharp claws and teeth to help them catch prey”. 

    We hope you’ve enjoyed looking at some of our work from this week. Please leave a comment if you have! 


  2. Victorian Day

    June 14, 2017 by Mr Rossiter

    On Monday, we all dressed up in our finest Victorian-style clothes and went back in time to attend a Victorian school for the day.

    Mr Murphy taught us Reading, Writing, Arithmetic and Religion – just like a Victorian teacher would.

    We used stylus’ to write on our own slates – some of us were a little bit nervous!

    Luckily, some of the rules have changed since Victorian times.

    At the end of the day, we decided that even though we’d had lots of fun, it was time to come back to the present day.

    We hope you’ve enjoyed our latest post and we will be posting again soon,
