Our topic this term is entitled 'Whinless Wildlife'.
Where in the world do animals live and why? How do animals come to live in zoos? Are zoos a good or bad thing? As growing Geographers we will develop the geographical skills to explore and confidently talk about how they can use a range of web-mapping and satellite programmes to locate where animals in captivity come from, we will then learn about these places and consider why this might be. In Science, we will extend our knowledge of ‘Amazing Animals’ from KS1 considering nutrition and what animals need to survive – asking the question is this the same for all animals? How many bones are in the human body? Do all skeletons look the same? What are the differences? As blossoming Biologists we will explore skeletons, muscles and their purpose.
This term our topic is ‘Take a Look Inside’. We started the term being super Scientists, taking part in our learning lift-off. We found X-rays scattered around our classroom and had to identify which animals belonged to and which bones they were showing. We also found a human skeleton which we had to piece back together!
