Our curriculum question this half term is...

 

'What Can We Find Out About Animals?'

 

 

Below is a project that you can complete to carry on your learning about animals. 

 

Animal experts! Your challenge is to choose an animal, learn all about it and create and present your learning in any way you choose. You might make a poster, a model or even find the animal in the wild to observe it! You must include what type of animal it is (mammal, reptile, fish, bird, amphibian or insect) what what type of eater it is (herbivore, carnivore or omnivore). You make present your learning in whichever creative way you choose.

These are class clips (videos) and learner guides all about animals for your child to continue to become an animal expert.

 

Below are the links to Edinburgh Zoo's live webcams. You might be able to learn some interesting things about these animals by watching them closely!

Here is the link to Chester Zoo's YouTube page. There are daily live talks, as well as the option to watch these later, about some of their fantastic animals. I've been learning lots so I hope you find them as interesting as I do! You can watch the Sumatran Tigers get fed, get up and close (virtually!) with the giraffes and even have a look at their new baby Asian Elephant!
