Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

David Attenborough, watch out!

This week we chose an animal that interested us to research so that we could write an information text about them.

Using the laptops and books to find information was really exciting.  We worked in small groups to find lots of amazing facts which included things about their family groups, what they ate and how they spend time.


Did you know?

  • A group of zebras is called a dazzle. (Jake, Maka and Jay)
  • A group of giraffe's is called a tower.  This was particularly helpful to the parents attending the quiz night! Thank you to the researchers Aahana, Callie and Bekelsi.
  • A group of Tigers is called a streak. (Lily)
  • Hyena's family group is called a cackle. (Joshua)
  • Flamingos eat lots of shrimps that give them their distinctive pink colour. (Beth and Amelia W)
  • Chameleons use their long rolled tongue to eat fruit and flies. (Gracie)


We were given a word of the day by Mrs Gibbs-Naguar - consume.  We challenged ourselves to include the new vocabulary in our writing. 

Why not ask someone from year 2 to tell you any of their amazing facts?
