We shared a lot of different vocabulary for animal movement; hop, wavy, wriggly, stretching, slowly, jumpy, sliding and crawling.  Here are some of our examples of moving animals from our lesson:


Year 1 enjoyed a trip to Paradise Wildlife Park this half term to consolidate their learning on their current science topic ‘Looking At Animals’.  The children were able to observe a wide range of animals and took part in a practical session focused on ‘Fur, Feathers and Scales’.  Please come and see our display in the Year 1 corridor.
