Year 2 - Snow leopard Class
Snow leopards are descendants of the wild cat and panther families. It is native to the rugged and snowy highlands of Central Asia. Snow leopards are powerful predators that can kill animals three times their weight. These animals are known to be endangered. Humans have pushed ever further with their livestock into the snow leopard's habitat. Overgrazing damages the fragile mountain grasslands, leaving less food for the wild sheep and goats that are the snow leopard's main prey. Poachers are also hunting them for their beautiful fur. It is estimated that there are 4,500 to 7,500 snow leopards living in the mountains of central Asia. It is believed that 60% of the entire population of snow leopards live in China.
IPC and STEM
Over this half term we will be following a unit of work based on a theme that focuses on ‘Time Detectives’. We will be looking at key events that have happened in the past and also most recently and how these have made a significant impact on our history and in society.
We will be taking on the role of archaeologists and looking at artefacts from that past. We will be describing them and exploring which era they may have come from. We will also be doing close observational drawings of the artefacts.
We will be looking at events such as, ‘The Great Fire of London’ and making comparisons to recent events such as Grenfell and discussing how these made an impact on society. During our art lesson we will be creating models of The Great Fire of London buildings.
