Y2 Lions


We are the Lions! 

Welcome to our class!

We are a Year 2 class and our teacher is Mrs Ganguly.  Mrs Robinson is our PPA cover teacher once every two weeks.  Our Year 2 Teaching Assistants are Mrs Henson and Mrs White. 

The name for lion in Swahili, an African language, is ‘simba’. 

Fun facts about lions

  • Lions are the only cats that live in groups.
  • A group, or pride, can be up to 30 lions, depending on how much food and water is available.
  • Female lions are the main hunters. While they’re out looking for food, the males guard the pride’s territory and their young.
  • A lion’s roar can be heard up to eight kilometres away.
  • Lion's scent mark their territory, using their wee, to create a border.
