Our Trip to Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park

 

On Tuesday 10th March year 2 visited the Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park to learn about nocturnal animals and their habitats.  In class the children had been finding out facts and writing about nocturnal animals in their literacy and science lessons.   They experienced a special teaching session in which they got to look and learn about some of the different nocturnal animals. They also had great delight afterwards looking around the park and learning about lots of other animals and creatures.

 

 

 

Botanical Gardens

On Monday 22nd June we went to visit the Botanical Gardens to support their topic work on the rainforest.  During the day they looked at many colourful  and exotic plants from around the world.  In the sub-tropical house the children experienced the damp, humid atmoshpere likening it to the climate of the rainforest.  They also saw different birds and beautiful butterflies as they strolled around the gardens.  After lunch the children visited the class room and learnt lots more facts about the rainforest, they were introduced to a chamelion called 'Mojo' and a bearded dragon called 'Rocky.' 

 

 

Seaside Experience

In Literacy the children had been reading 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne.  They were asked to re-write the story however they had to think of an alternative ending.  Many of the children decided to choose a beach for the setting. To inspire the children, staff created a beach in the outdoor classroom.  The children crawled through the tunnel and were amazed to find themselves on a beach.  They enjoyed building sandcastles and splashing around in the 'make believe' sea.  

Trip to St. Mark's Church

On Thursday 9th July Year 2 visited St. Mark's Church.  Mrs Alder and other members of the congregation talked to the children about the different areas of the church and how they are used.  The children learnt about the different types of services held at the church and festivals that are celebrated throughout the year.  It was an enjoyable experience for the children and they remembered lots of information to enable them to answer questions at the end.
