Day 1 Wk 7

This term's topic is 'Animals and The Living World'.


To start our topic we would like you listen to 'Carnival of the Animals'. Our learning will be inspired by this famous piece of music by Camille Saint-Saëns.


In this topic we will learn about some fascinating creatures that feature in the movements of the music (mammals, reptiles, birds and fish from around the world).


Let's start with a fun game! Can you think of an animal for each letter of the alphabet? Use the sheet to record your answers.

Task 1: How much do you already know? To get you started, we would like you to write the correct name for adult and baby animals. You are given the adult animal and you need to write the name for the offspring. Offspring means the child of the animal.

Task 2:

What do animals need to survive?

Watch this BBC Bitesize video to find out.

Task 3: Over the next few days we will be looking at habitats. A habitat is a place where an animal lives. Some animals  can be found in lots of different habitats, while others can only survive in one type of habitat. You have just found out that a habitat must provide everything that an animal needs to survive, otherwise the animal will not be able to live there and will die. For example, the habitat may be too hot, too cold, or too dry, or there might not be enough food.

Cut out the habitat cards and the set of animal pictures. Your challenge is to match the animal to its most suitable habitat. When you have matched them, you could draw some more animals that live in each habitat.  Finally write a sentence to explain why these animals are suited to their environment.
