Science:

We have been working on the topic of Animals including humans. The children need to group animals into the different categories of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.

This week on Purple Mash we have set the children an animal grouping activity.

Please find a video link and posters below to support their learning:

Topic:

We are currently learning about The Animal Kingdom. Ask your child to talk about the different continents and oceans throughout the world and some of the countries within them. They have been locating continents and animals native to that continent.

Research animals found in Africa. Using Purple Mash, create a Safari Animals fact sheet. Alternatively, they can design their own African animal fact sheet or poster.

Here are some resources to support this:
