In Year 1 science lessons, we have been learning about classifying animals. This half-term started off with an exciting visit from the Creature Teachers, who held a workshop to give the children the opportunity to see different animals up close, learn about their different features and how these features help them survive.
The children have learnt about different categories of animals each week and have been sharing their knowledge with each other during class discussions. We have been really impressed with their enthusiasm for this topic and they particularly enjoyed looking at their own animals and thinking about what classification of animal that it would fall under.
As a landing for our topic, the Year 1 children have created some fantastic fact files on a chosen group of animals to demonstrate what they have learnt. These fact files will be sent off to the Creature Teachers and we are looking forward to receiving their feedback!
