UKS2 – Class 9 – Science

Today the children in Class 9 were introduced to the concept of classifying animals. They designed their own zoo based on classifying the animals on their tables. Together, they discussed how they classified each animal, why they chose their method and whether there were any differences between their zoo classification to others.

Here are some of their statements:

  • “I have chosen to organise based on warm- and cold-blooded animals. I did this because if I did this it would organise a large number of them.”
  • “So far, I have classified based on vertebrates and invertebrates. Looking at the pictures [of animals], this was the obvious place to start.”
  • “I started with warm and cold environment because despite other similar characteristics it would not work in my zoo. Their habitat was the most important place to start.”
