Learning to be submitted for feedback this week relates to this lesson (make a poster).  Please do try to email me your learning for feedback, it's really valuable for the children and I do have to keep a checklist of it all! Thank you.


Animals including Humans

This term, we will learn to:

  • Notice that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults
  • Find out about and describe the basic needs of animals (water, food and air)
  • Learn about exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food and hygiene.

This week, we will learn about animals and their offspring, or babies. 

(Next week in English, our learning is based upon the book 'Diary of a Wombat' by Jackie French so I've included a couple of wombat videos too!)
