Danger in the Kingdom
This term our topic is all about Endangered Animals with a special focus on the scientific objectives of animals including humans. As part of this topic, we will be learning about animals’ basic needs for survival, their life-cycles and comparing different species.
We started our term with an exciting animal parade, giving the children a chance to come to school dressed as their favourite endangered animal. Our D.T. objectives of ‘moveable objects’ will also be linked to our topic with the children designing and creating their own animal with movable limbs.
In English we will be focusing on both fiction and non-fiction writing from the text ‘The Hunter’ by Paul Geraghty. This beautiful text really allows the children to immerse themselves in the importance of protecting our wildlife while writing in role as different characters.
