Nocturnal Desert Animals
2R have been learning all about nocturnal desert animals as part of their literacy unit on non-chronological reports. They have enjoyed finding out about all sorts of strange animals and used inquiry skills to make mind maps of information. Did you know Geckos use their tongues to clean their eyes?
The children also enjoyed creating collage pictures of desert scenes in the daytime. They used pop-ups and flaps to hide the sleeping nocturnal animals under bushes, rocks and in burrows. Can you guess which night-time animals might be hiding in them?
Do you know any fascinating facts about Scorpians, Fennec Foxes, Jerboas, Gerbils or Golden Moles? If so share them in the comments box below.

Year 2 Swimming Gala
Yesterday 2R had a super swimming gala. All of the children shouted and cheered for their team mates and waved the class banner! The children competed in all sorts of swimming races from doggy paddle, backstroke and butterfly to the surfboard relay, sea horse race and the team treasure hunt! Well done to all of the children and a huge thank you to all of the parents who came along to cheer them on.
GO 2R! GO 2R! GO 2R!!!
