Term 4

Our topic this term is entitled 'Amazing Animals'.  

We are all different, but how different are animals? Can we identify animals and their features? What makes them unique? What features do they have in common? What do they eat and how can you classify them? How do their features help them in the climate they live in? This term we become walking-talking Animal Encyclopedias!

As super Scientists we will learn lots of new scientific vocabulary! We will name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals and identify and name a variety of common animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.

As hands-on historians we will study the life of Sir David Attenborough and learn all about why it is important to look after animals. Have humans always been kind to animals? How has this changed?

As growing Geographers we will study maps to learn about where different animals live and why they need to live in that environment.

As aspirational Artists we will use animal texture and pattern as inspiration to create our own prints and designs.
