After learning all about ‘Everyday Materials’, we moved on to ‘Animals Including Humans’. We learnt the names of all the body parts for different types of animals, such as reptiles, amphibians, mammals, fish and birds. We looked at the different animal groups and ourselves and discussed similarities and differences.
‘I’m different to a dog because I’ve got two legs and a dog has four legs.’
‘the lion and elephant both have ears to hear with, but the elephant’s ears are much bigger so that it can also use them to cool itself down.’
When we labelled the body parts of African animals, we also explained what they were used for.
