The science topic is called, 'Looking at Animals.' The children will be learning about a variety of familiar and less familiar animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. The children will learn to:  

  • identify and name, look closely at and compare and contrast many different animals
  • name their body parts, describe their physical features and mimic how they move.
  • understand that animals need to eat to be healthy and that they eat lots of different foods.
  • They are also introduced to the vocabulary 'carnivore', 'herbivore' and 'omnivore'.

Today the children have been learning about different types of animals and mimicking the way in which they move. They really enjoyed being penguins! 

Today we have been given three different challenges. We are learning which animals are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores.

Challenge one was to match foods to animals and say whether the animal is a carnivore or herbivore.

Challenge two was to decide which two halves of a sentence match and then explain our thinking and even write our own sentence.

Challenge three was to use a Venn diagram to record which animals eat which type of food and to use information books to research about animals we didn’t know about.

We all completed the challenges with different levels of help from our teachers. What a busy day!

We have each made a model of an animal that is part of the amphibian family. We looked very closely at the creatures and then used pictures of them to help us to make our models. We then carefully studied the colours of the animals and painted our models to make them more life like.
