Topic

We will be learning about ...

Science

We will be learning about the importance of different habitats and will be looking at different micro-habitats in the wild-life area.  We will identify and record which living things can be found in different micro-habitats.

We will be looking at how animals have adapted to their environment and look at any special features they have to allow them to live in a particular habitat.

We will describe how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals, using the idea of a simple food chain.  We will name producers and consumers.

Remember, Remember

  • To describe the importance of different habitats to animals and plants.

Geography

We will use a map of the school grounds to record which living things we found in different areas.  We will use this information to help create a map with a key.

Art

We will continue to develop our skills in creating 3D sculptures. Working as part of a team we will create our very own 3D sculptures of the animals found inside the peach.

We will look at detailed drawings of butterflies and we will use these to create our own butterfly design.  We will then use clay to create a 3D model of our design and use these to create a class mural.
