In science this term, we have been looking at animals and their habitats. First, we started at what is a living thing. We explored MRS GREN:










Then we started to explore habitats around us. We are very lucky to have the swale and discussed how certain animals are suited to living in a pond envionment. We also explored that the pond needs the animals to be able to spread seeds. 

After, we went on a microhabitat hunt such as under a log, in the grass and at the bottom of a tree. 

Finally, we explored habitats around the world: arctic, rainforest, desert and ocean. We sorted which animals would live in each habitat and also how the animals depend on the habitat.

Ways to help at home

  • Practise your spellings and common exception words
  • As you read spot the sounds in words, can you find digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that make one sound)?
  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
  • Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
  • Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
  • Practise letter formation using the correct pencil grip and develop fine motor skills (peg pressing, picking pasta shells/rice with tweezers)
