Topic – Animals

We are going to continue looking at animals this week. Last week I asked you to research information about vertebrates and invertebrates. This week, we are going to focus on vertebrates. There are 5 groups of vertebrates which are mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish. Have a look at the information on the posters below to find out about these groups. Then complete the worksheet ‘Vertebrates Animal Facts’. For this task, put a tick or a cross in the boxes to show the true statements for each animal. The answer sheet comes with it, that you can check at the end. For each statement, read it clearly and then look at the different groups of animals. If the statement is true for the groups, put a tick or a cross in the box. If the statement is false, do not put anything in the box. For example, statement 1 says ‘It is cold-blooded’, so you should put a tick or a cross in the boxes of animals that are cold-blooded.

• Have an egg and spoon race.

• Egg rolling – boil an egg and decorate it, then roll it down a hill or along the ground and see who can roll their egg the furthest.
