To begin our topic we had a visit from Animal Story. We learned all about animals that have paws, claws and whiskers. We got to look at and feel some of the animals that Martyn from Animal Story brought to show us. Our favourites were the owl and the house rabbit!


Animal Exploration

As part of our Science work we have been exploring the school grounds for signs of different animals. We were looking for signs of different animal groups. We found some evidence of mammals, invertebrates and birds.

From our findings we concluded that there was not enough wildlife benefitting from our school grounds, so we made bird feeders to attract them.
