YEAR 2 - Indigo & Violet Classes

This half term our topic is...


Rumble in the Jungle!


We have been learning about two habitats, the Jungle and the Polar Regions.

We have been learning about...

  • Where these habitats are in our world
  • The weather
  • What we might see there
  • Plants and animals that live there
  • How animals are suited to help them live in their habitat
  • Famous explorers


We have also been reading 'The Jungle Book' by Rudyard Kipling.


Mrs Wilks and Miss Preston will set you a new task every day to help you to continue learning about our topic at home. We would love to hear how you are getting on with them by sending us a dojo message or photo of your work!smiley
