Welcome to the class page for 2RH! Here you will see all the fantastic work we have been doing each half term. 


Our topic for Autumn 1 is....


Brilliant Bugs!


What would the world be like without insects?


At story time, we have been reading Harry the Poisonous Centipede by Lynne Reid Banks. The children have listened so carefully and have been very keen to hear the next chapter to find out more about the adventures that Harry and his friend George get up to.



This week we had a visit from Zoo Lab. We met some fascinating creatures (a hissing cockroach, giant African land snail, giant millipede, corn snake and a very hairy tarantula) and learnt lots of interesting facts about them.

For our next science lesson we went into our school forest garden to search for different minibeasts in their microhabitats. We looked under rocks and stones, in the grass, on plant leaves and under bits of wood and twigs. We found lots and lots of minibeasts and recorded them in a tally chart. 

In our science lessons we have started to learn about habitats and the basic needs of the animals that live in them. We learnt that animals need air, food, water, shelter and a place to raise their young to survive in their habitats. We made a snail habitat for our classroom and collected lots of things to make the snails comfortable.
