UKS2 – Class 8 & 9 – Science

Today, the children rotated around three different activities to explore how animals can be classified. In each activity they identified the features that result in animals being classified as vertebrates or invertebrates.

Firstly, the children completed a reading activity. They used their reading skills to explore how vertebrates are divided into smaller groups, like: fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.

Secondly, the children completed a matching activity which focused on the characteristics of each main type of vertebrate. They were able to identify: the type of blood (warm or cold blooded), how they reproduce (by birthing their live young or by laying eggs) and how they breathe (using lungs or gills).

Thirdly, the children carefully observed some of the animals we have in school to identify their characteristics and classification.
