Science

Last week we were learning about birds.  I hope you got to watch the live webcams of birds on their nests!  I know a lot of you got to make birds nests outside! This week we will be looking at a range of mammals.  Marcus has filmed some pigs for us which like to roam around freely in the New Forest at certain times of the year!  Have a look at the clip below!

Lesson 3:

To identify and name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.

Success criteria:

I can identify and name common animals

I can gather information to answer questions.

With help, I can record and communicate my findings in a range of ways and begin to use scientific language. 

Pigs in the New Forest

Now onto a different kind of pig!  These are mammals and they are often kept as pets! They are classified as being in the 'rodent' family.  Find out about guinea pigs from the reading comprehensions and then learn how to look after and care for a guinea pig and answer the questions.  
Find out about and see a good range of mammals by watching this video:-

What are mammals? | Primary Biology - Animal Types

Scientific questions to talk about at home:

What kind of animals have you found out about?

Was it a fish, amphibian, reptile, bird or mammal?

How do you know it is a mammal?

Why are mammals different to reptiles and birds?

Key words:

animal, reptile, fish, amphibian, bird, mammal, habitat

Extra challenge!

Choose one of your favourite mammals.  It could be a wild animal or one kept as a pet.  Can you draw/write about it?  Can you label your diagram? What are their special features?  What kinds of habitats do they like to live in?

If you have a pet at home we would love to see you with them and find out all about them! Send in your pictures/photos to our class email address and I will put them into our 'Celebration of learning' section.
