Class 2 will be using maps and globes to locate the continents and oceans of the world. We will study Scotts's exploration of the South Pole and Antarctica.  In English, as part of The Primary Writing Project, we are looking at animal poetry inspired by our trip to Chester Zoo. We will be looking at non-chronilogical rports and writing our own reports about animals. We will   study the text "Meerkat Mail". We will write letters and postcards as Sunny as he travels around the world.
