Big, Scary, Wild and Hairy!’

This half term will look at the world of wildlife. we will focus on 5 main groups of living creatures – mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and insetcs. The children will learn who belongs in these groups and how to classify them.

Whilst exploring these groups we will share a great book.

‘Owl Babies’

Through ‘Talk for Writing’ the children will be learning how to re-tell and re-write a narrative. We will also use non-fiction texts as parts of our living creatures research. 

Please check the file below to find out what we’re learning about this half term.
