Today in science, we went on a mini beast hunt! Linking in with our science topic, ‘Living things and their habitats’ children explored our environmental area for different insects and spiders, both invertebrates and vertebrates. We studied the different habitats and included the five types of our inquiry for our science investigation: observation, research, patterns and identifying and classifying. Then, children discussed the following key questions:

  • Do different insects live in different habitats and why?
  • How do habitats change over time?
  • How have these insects and spiders adapted to their habitat?
  • Can we use a key to organise and group our findings?

Take a look at what we got up to this afternoon. More science work to follow when we write up and analyse our investigation.

Following on from our Science investigation we have written some key questions and organised the animals placing them in the correct categories. Take a look at our work:
