Nature Detectives

Term 6

This term our topic still has a science focus. We will be learning about different habitats and the animals that live there. We will be discussing why certain animals are suited to a particular habitat. We will construct classification keys to help identify animals in their habitats. We will also be learning about the structure of food chains and making our own. We will be making digital art of different habitats and looking at the work of David Hockney.

Our current Power of Reading book is 'The Owl Who is Afraid of the dark' by Jill Tomlinson.

Maths

Practise maths facts on your child's current maths planet's level e.g

Please look on the maths section of the school website to find samples of your child's current maths planet level.
