I can group animals by their body type.
Children play a 2-player game where they draw cards, challenging them to group animals in a variety of ways. Challenge cards include properties such as 'animals with a skeleton on the inside' and 'animals with feathers'.
I can identify some mammals.
Children learn that mammals give birth to live young. They sort 9 pictures into 2 groups - mammals and non-mammals. They consider what else the mammals have in common.
I can place animals in the fish, amphibian, bird, reptile and mammal groups.
Children learn about 5 groups of animals - birds, mammals, reptiles, fish and amphibians. They place 18 pictures in the correct animal groups. A description is provided for each animal group.
I can match animals to what they eat.
Children match 6 different animals to examples of their food. They consider whether animals eat plants or other animals. Children explore patterns, such as animals eating the same type of food.
I can identify carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
Children learn about carnivores (animals that only eat meat), herbivores (animals that only eat plants) and omnivores (animals that eat both meat and plants). They place 12 different animals in the correct groups, depending on whether they are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores.
I can label the main parts of animals' bodies.
Children use a word bank to help them label the body parts of 12 different animals. There are 20 different body parts in the word bank, including head, tail, beak, leg and wing.
I can label the main parts of the human body.
Children use a word bank to help them to label 3 bodies - a baby, a boy and a man. Body parts in the word bank include head, neck, arm, elbow, leg, knee, face, ear, eye, hair, mouth and teeth.
I can explain what part of the body is to do with which sense.
Children use a word bank to label a diagram, showing what part of the body is associated with each sense - sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. They learn that the sense of touch is associated with the whole body, rather than a particular organ.
I can name some common sea animals and say whether or not they are fish.
Children identify 10 different sea animals which are commonly found around the shores of the British Isles. They cut out their pictures and place them into two groups - 'fish' and 'not fish'.
