Spring Term - January 2020
This term we are studying 'Living things and their habitats'.
We began this topic by questioning 'What makes a living thing?' using MRS NERG to help us remember :
We have thought about how we group living things. We used the groups mammals, reptiles, insects, birds, fish, amphibians, flowering plants and non-flowering plants to classify different living things. The children then had a go at creating a branching database using yes/no questions.
The children loved visiting 'The Hollow' to investigate which vertebrates and invertebrates they could find. They searched under logs, in bushes and in hollows created in the bark of a tree. Ask your child which creatures they managed to find. Can they tell you the difference between a vertebrate and an invertebrate?
