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?
