Term 2 - Habitats
Term 2 – LIVING THINGS AND HABITATS
We hope you had a nice break and are ready to learn about living things and their habitats. Through this topic, we will be exploring and classifying creatures, to further understand their appearance and how they have adapted over time to suit their habitats.
If the children wish to learn more about living things and their habitats at home, they may wish to create a model with description, a non-chronological report about their favourite living thing or an art project displaying the layers and complexity of their chosen living thing.
PE will remain on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with our focus now on Tag-rugby and Forest School. Please ensure children have the correct PE kit AND bring in wellington boots and waterproof clothes in preparation for the amazing outdoor learning we will be doing this term.
