| Year 1

In our first STEM lesson this term, we started to think about ‘Animals and their Habitats’. We named lots of different animals and have learnt that a habitat is where an animal lives.

To start the lesson, Miss Parkinson chose an animal from a feely bag and used adjectives to describe what it looked like. She thought very carefully about the clues she was giving so the children could imagine the animal in their heads. The children could not see the animal and had to listen very carefully to her clues to establish what animal it was. The children were great at this and shared their guesses with the class.

The children were then set the task to draw their favourite animal and label it using adjectives. They had to think carefully about their clues so we could imagine what the animal they chose looked like. They then thought of some questions for what they would like to find out about animals and their habitats.
