Science – animals

Monday 15 January 2024

This half term in KS1, we are learning about animals in Science. We started the topic last week by discussing what a mammal is.

‘A mammal is an animal that has fur or hair and gives birth to live offspring.’

Examples of mammals include: dogs, cats, elephants, whales and bears.

This week we have been learning about fish and birds.  We labelled the features of both types of animal so that we know how to identify them. We also know what these features are for.

”Most birds have wings to fly, but not all birds can fly, like penguins.’ (2C)” Fish have fins and a tail to help them swim in water” (1A)
