Animals and their habitats.
In science we have divided animals into those which have backbones (vertebrates) and those which do not (invertebrates). Today we begun classifying vertebrate animals into their 5 classes - fish, birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles.
In the lesson today we looked at the dangers to wildlife in our local environment. We talked about the ways in which humans have an impact on animals and plants in our town and what we could do to protect these living things. The children thought of some ways to keep our wildlife safe.
Class 6 used the ipads to research a variety of animal which are endangered because of human behaviour.
British Science Week
The children learnt about some inventions and how they were invented. They were surprised to find out that the first mobile phone weighed the same as two loaves of bread, that Siri was only introduced 2 years before they were born in 2011 and that I had to walk to the T.V. to change the channel.
We then watched a Science Max video about sound. The children were then challenged to design and make an innovative musical instrument.
