Identifying and sorting animals
By the end of this lesson you should be able to say :
I can identify and name a variety of common animals including, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds
I can suggest how to sort animals into groups.
Ask your child about their favourite animal and make a list of about 10.
Recap the main animal groups fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals ,by watching the presentation below. Then decide which group the animals on the list belong to.
Then sort the animals into groups, for example mammals, not mammals or fur and no fur. Ask the children to say how they sorted them into groups, using the features of animals in that group to explain – warm blooded, fur, smooth skin, lives on land / water, lays eggs etc

There is a project called which runs every day throughout the month of June. Can you do something 'wild' that links to nature every day during June? We'd love to hear about any that you manage to do- why not post a blog about what you have done? See the ideas at the bottom of the page here for a suggestion each day.
