Year 2 held an animal week to celebrate the end of their time learning about animals. They decided to sponsor two endangered animals. 2C sponsored a jaguar and 2RE sponsored a giant panda!

On Wednesday Michelle, an artist, came in to show the children how to use pastels and chalks to draw our endangered animals. Their pictures were very effective!

On Thursday the children had a visit from Crazy Creatures. John and Megan brought in 10 different types of animals. Everyone got the chance to hold lots of animals and they all learnt lots of interesting facts! The children were also very brave and sensible when handling the animals.

And finally, on Friday the children and their teachers came to school dressed as animals. All the costumes were fantastic!
