Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed their day out at Folly Farm. Their task for the day was to be researchers to gather information about African animals so that they could use this for their learning back in class. The children were amazing researchers; by the end of our visit they were able to identify Africa on the world map and had learnt lots about the animals' diet, habitat, weight and length and lifespan.
Week ending 30th September 2016
This week the children skimmed and scanned an information text about elephants and then used this information to create mind maps about elephants using the Simpleminds app on the iPads.
