As part of our geography topic 'Going On Safari'. We are learning animals that can be found in Kenya, as well as learning all about maps and how to read them. Today we combined the 2! We used maps and compass points to navigate around the plains of Kenya, discovering a variety of animals. Learning songs to support our learning.
We then challenged our selves to follow the coordinates on a map of our school to find different items. We also recorded different landmarks and objects that could be found in a variety of coordinates. We are quite the experts now!
KS1 have been lucky enough to visit the Yorkshire Wildlife Park as part of out 'Let's Go On Safari' topic in Geography. We really enjoyed looking at all of the different animals, finding out about which country they were from and how the Safari Park had made them feel at home by creating a comfortable habitat for them. We will be looking at where the countries are on our class globe.
Our highlights of the day were the Lemurs as we got to get really close to them, and the cheeky monkeys. The monkeys were very funny and made us laugh. We also watched a creepy crawly show whilst eating our lunch! We feel very lucky to have been on such a fun and exciting adventure today! For a lot of us this is our first class trip and we all had the best time!
Did you know that in class 2 we are persuasion experts! We have already persuaded Mrs Sanderson to let us transform our woodland into an enchanted one. We have now moved onto our next challenge, persuading the School Council that we need to do more recycling at Athersley South Primary School. We outlined some superb arguments for our points of view and even used paragraphs in our letters! We are amazing writers in Class 2!
