Wow what an amazing time Class 2R had at the zoo. We spent a lot of time looking at the elephants and we think we spotted the elephant calf Indali who we had learnt about in class. We also saw the golden mantilla frog which is an endangered species, chimpanzees, orang-utans, crocodiles, lizards, snakes, camels, vultures, flamingos, penguins and many more. We even got the chance to see the giraffes being fed close up. We ended the day by having a sing a long on the coach journey home.
The children have been exploring pattern and animal prints to create their own elephant collage.
The children learnt how to use water colours today to create a sunset effect. The children then used this as a background to create an elephant silhouette picture.
The children have been learning how to draw an elephant today. We learnt about line, size, proportion, scale and shade. We are very proud of our elephant sketches.
Class 2R have been using their computing skills to create pictograms for their Chester Zoo work.
The children have been practising their sewing skills to make their own elephant finger puppets today. We can't wait to decorate them.
The children carried out a conscience alley today to give George Mottershead reasons for and against keeping animals in a zoo.
This week we will be doing lots of work about Chester Zoo as part of our global week. Each year group has been given a specific animal to concentrate on and our animal is elephants. Today we revisited how to use search engines to help us find out lots of interesting facts about elephants.

The children have been learning about division in their maths lessons.
Class 2R are looking at different genres of dance in their dance lessons. This week they learnt about street dance.
The children have been learning and reciting poems based on a jungle theme. The children used musical instruments and body percussion to add to their performance.
The children used their avatars that they created to produce some pop art in the style of Andy Warhol. The children used a range of different media to create their pop art.
The children have created their own avatars on the ipads. Can you guess who they belong to?
