The Learning Project – to be done throughout the week: Animals
 
The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more
about key animals they are interested in. Learning may focus on exploring the
physical aspects of an animal, their habitat, categorising animals etc.
Remember that you don't have to do all these tasks.  Choose something that interests you and that you will enjoy doing!


Find out about:
What are mammals?
What are amphibians?
What are birds?
What are fish?
What are reptiles?
What are minibeasts?
https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv
 
Create a mask: Using different materials around the house, create a mask of their favourite
animal. Think about the colours and shape. Can they add different textures to their mask?
 

 

Where does your animal live? Play this sorting activity to develop their understanding of where
different animals live.
http://resources.hwb.wales.gov.uk/VTC/animal_homes/eng/Introduction/default.htm
 
Animal grouping: 
These Sorting Cards would be useful for the task https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-t-19730-animal-groups-sorting-cards-photos
Get your child to group animals into two columns. Identifying animals that can
fly and cannot fly. What do animals eat? Scientists group animals into three different groups
according to what animals eat. These groups are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. Carnivores
eat other animals, herbivores eat plant material including fruit, leaves, vegetables, omnivores eat a
mixture of meat and plant material. (Animals that eat other animals are called carnivores. Animals that eat plants
are called herbivores. Animals that eat both plants and other animals are called omnivores)
 
Needs of an animal. Can all animals be kept as a pet? Think about a particular animal and find out
if that animal could be a pet. Draw pictures of different animals. Sort the
animals into two groups; suitable for a pet and not suitable for a pet.
Explain why animals were sorted in a particular way.
- Design a leaflet explaining to
potential pet owners what each animal will need. – What are the responsibilities involved with looking after an animal?
How often do they need to find their pet? Who helps to clean? What does the pet eat? 
Can you create your own mini animal or object, then stick it to a peg cut in half?   


 
 
Nocturnal animals - What do they think this word means?
Watch  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zsshfg8 and discuss the animals they
saw. Have they seen these animals? How could they describe them?
Play https://ictgames.com/mobilePage/nocturnal/index.html. Nocturnal animals are more active at night than during the day. These animals sleep during the day, often in a burrow or
den. They have special adaptations that help them survive in the dark. Over millions of years, these
animals have developed traits that help them survive in the darkness. Nocturnal animals may have
larger ears to hear better, bigger eyes to see better, and body parts that glow in the night. Create
your own big-eyed nocturnal animal art. See https://www.greenkidcrafts.com/6-nocturnal-animal-crafts/
