This term, in science, Year 6 are learning about living things and their habitats, but in more detail classification and how living things are classified using keys.
We will be learning about the five kingdoms and so far have learnt about many of the different groups within the animal kingdom and how there are subdivided.
Crickets and grasshoppers arrived on Friday and we enjoyed researching about what type of living thing they are and designing and suitable habitat to ensure they will be comfortable during their stay with Year 6. We named one of the grasshoppers ‘El Caminante’ after our story in English as it enjoyed climbing over tubing as if it were a tight-rope.
We noticed we had to be really quiet if we wanted to hear them chirping.
