Class 2 - Science Skills: Classifying and Researching Animals

07 Nov 2019

On Tuesday, we all enjoyed sharing news about what we had been doing during the Half-Term holiday.  We focussed on our speaking and listening skills by trying to speak clearly and everyone showed respect by listening carefully to others. 

We thought about Bonfire Night and listened to the story of Guy Fawkes and his plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament.  We also spent some time thinking about being safe near bonfires and fireworks.  On Wednesday, we created some fantastic firework pictures using oil pastels and chalks, which showed up brightly on black paper.


In Science, we have been thinking about animals.   
We have focussed on two scientific learning skills - Classifying and Researching.  
We explored many different ways of grouping animals and thought about questions such as:

'Can they swim?'             'Can they fly?'             Which habitat do they live in?'        'What kind of food do they eat?'    

We used knowledge that we learnt in our History work about dinosaurs.  We remembered that dinosaurs can be classified into carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.  We applied this information to classify dinosaurs and other animals in our grouping activity. 



 We created a group for creatures that have become extinct; Matilda and Summer collected up all the dinosaurs to put into the extinct group.
We have been amazed by some of the facts that we found when we researched for information using books, magazines and computers.
Here are some of the facts that we have read about:

     The blue whale can produce the loudest sound of any animal.
Giant Arctic jellyfish have tentacles that can reach over 36 metres in length.
Dolphins use whistling, clicking and other sounds to communicate with each other.
     Camels can survive up to six months without water or food due to the fatty tissues stored in their humps.
The cheetah is the fastest animal to roam the earth with top speeds of 113 km per hour.
