Welcome to our Class 2 page!
It had been discussed by the school council about supporting a charity either an animal or a human charity. The school council decided that the best and fairest way to choose a charity would be to have a school debate and then for each child to vote on which type of chairty they would like to support. After the debate, the school councillors counted the votes and revealed to the school that the majority vote was to support an animal charity.
The school councillors then came together and thought of lots of different animal charities that they could possibly support. The charity chosen was RSPCA. The councillors came up with the idea of everyone coming to school one day whilst dressing up as their favourite animal.
On Friday 13th July, the children at Yardley Hastings Primary School held a fundraising day to raise awareness and money for the RSPCA. Mrs McManus led a assembly about the RSPCA to make the children more aware of what they do. The children also showed off their costumes to one another.
Class 2 came in from lunch to see that there had been an Animal Invasion. They were wondering what on earth had happened! Around the classroom, they spotted animal footprints and animal artefacts. This was their introduction to their new English topic based on the book, 'Little Mouse's Big Book of Beasts' by Emily Gravett.
The children were amazed to see many different animals all over the classroom wearing items of clothing that you wouldn't normally see associated with an animal! There was a rhino wearing high heels, a crocodile brushing his teeth with toothpaste and a lion with gloves on.
After reading the book with Mrs McManus, the children went on to discuss why the mouse in the book had been making alterations to it. The mouse had added and changed parts to make the beasts less scary!
