We have been learning all about Sunny the Meerkat and his adventures around the world in Meerkat Mail. Sunny came to visit us, here at Western! He packed everything he needed for his holiday including disgusting grubs and bugs to eat. Yuck! We then used role-play to become Sunny and write our own postcards from beautiful Wallsend. Sunny really enjoyed his visit and we can’t wait to learn more all about our world and different cultures!
We were also lucky enough to have a visit from Mr Rush, a specialist music teacher! He held workshops with us where we listened to the music of ‘Peter and the Wolf’ and composed our own pieces. We loved using the iPads, listening to different instruments and creating unique sounds for each character! We performed our pieces to the class and felt incredibly proud of our masterpieces! Year 2 is full of budding musicians!
