Exploring underwater food chains.
In Orca Class we have been putting on our 'Scientist hats' and we have been learning all about living things. We started off by learning what all living things do for them to be living and MRS NERG came along to help us!
Last week, we learnt how to use branching databases to sort, classify and identify living things (especially creatures in the ocean to help us with our topic 'Blue Abyss'). They look and sound really difficult but we worked in pairs to come up with some great ones- make sure you take a look in our books at parents' evening to see them.
Finally, this week, we have been exploring underwater food chains. The children already had amazing knowledge from their 'Predators' topic they did in Year 3 but, as many of the ocean creatures are unfamiliar to the children, they had to think hard about where they would fit into the food chain.
