This term we have been learning about identifying different animals in our science lessons. We have discussed the different pets we have and what our pets need to make sure they are cared for. We have also explored the life cycle of a tadpole and identified which animals are mammals, fish, birds, amphibians and reptiles. Recently, we have used a table to sort animals into whether they are carnivores (meat eaters), herbivores (plant eaters) and omnivores (plant and meat eaters) – Class 2 have been super at this! The knowledge they have retained has really impressed Mrs Powell, particularly when naming the characteristics of a mammal. As our Identifying Animals topic comes to an end, we are going to finish it with exploring our school grounds to see how many creepy crawlies (ants, spiders, woodlouse, beetles, worms, slugs and snails) we can find! Take a look at some of us identifying which of our pets are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores as well as some pieces of work that are on our science display.
Watch this space for an update on our next science topic which is all about the different types of habitats that animals live in!
Welcome to Class 2. We all love working hard, trying our very best and having some fun.
