Topic Based task

As a follow up to our trip to the woods which was planned for Wednesday we were going to compare different habitats for animals/ minibeasts. 


At home please research and talk about the animals / minibeasts that live in British woodlands. The children can draw pictures of the animals / minibeasts and label them. They can look at why woodlands are good places for those animals to live. E.g The minibeasts that live in leaf litter. 


The pictures attached may give you some ideas of things to talk about. 


The fact sheets are for your information - the woodland one is the last one.


The writing prompt sheets are for you to use if you would like.


The part of the ELG (Early Learning Goal) you will be working towards is: 


Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places and living things. They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one to another. They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes.
