Spring 2 - Animal Kingdom


Animal Kingdom

To begin our Animal Kingdom topic, we created Julia Donaldson inspired pictures and made our own characters using natural materials. We enjoyed reading The Snail and the Whale and displaying our own Rhyming Word Bank. We used the word bank to re-write sections of the story.


In Science we learnt about different animal groups including reptiles, birds and mammals. To find out what animals eat, we examined animal 'poo' and discovered which animals are carnivores, omnivores and herbivores. We researched different animals and created detailed fact files.


Shepreth Wildlife Park 

Our topic ended with a wonderful, yet chilly, trip to Shepreth Wildlife Park. We got the train from Royston to Shepreth and enjoyed a lovely day finding out about lots of different animals.
