| Year 2

Using their prior knowledge of animals the children enjoyed looking at a selection of animal pictures, before pair sharing information about them. They worked enthusiastically to group animal pictures by setting their own criteria. This included each group giving a clear detailed explanation for their choice of grouping. The children have extended their learning further by placing animals into five groups under the following headings, mammals, reptiles, birds, insects and fish. They have used a wide selection of non-fiction books to support this exciting topic.
