Monday 1st March

Hello everybody and good morning... it's Monday! 

Today is the first day of March and it’s also St David’s Day – a very special day for people in Wales. As we are near the season of spring lots of flowers are beginning to grow. Did you know that daffodils are the national flower of Wales? Have you spotted any growing anywhere? I’ve got some crocuses and snowdrops growing in my garden. If you go on a walk today why don’t you have a look and see what flowers are growing near you.

English

This week we are going to continue with our story about Handa that is set in Kenya. How do you think Handa is feeling as she is going on her journey? What might she be thinking as she walked along to Akeyo's village? Why don’t you pause the story as you listen to see if you can answer these questions as you go along.

Handa's Surprise

Your activity today is to imagine and write some thought bubbles for Handa as she walked. There are six thought bubbles to choose from or you could draw your own illustrations and thought bubbles for Handa or the animals!

Topic

In science we have been learning about carnivores, omnivores and herbivores. Can you remember what these words mean? Tell your adult now.

Scientists like to put animals in group according to their similarities so they are easier to identify. Watch this introduction video to find out more.  

Classifying Animals | BBC Bitesize | science

There are 5 animal groups we are going to look at today. Scientists have named them mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish and birds. Watch the video to find out more about the different species of animal that are in each group.

 

Now we know which different types of animals are in each group, have a go at sorting some animals into the different groups using the sheet below.

Let’s see what challenge Mr Shingler has for us today!
