Autumn Term 2 - Paws, Claws and Whiskers

Paws, Claws and Whiskers


Our Cornerstones project this term is called Paws, Claws and Whiskers. Throughout the project we will be gaining lots of knowledge and understanding about different animals from around the world, discovering food chains and finding out who is a carnivore and herbivore.


Throughout the project the children will learn how to take care of animals and how animals adapt to survive, in order to answer our Big Question: How do animals adapt to survive?

We have been learning about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores this week. The children began by investigating different ways they might group animals. After learning our new key vocabulary and spending some time learning what foods different animals eat, the children group animals according to their diet.
