Animals including Humans 

This week, we would like you to design a meal for your favourite animal. Are they carnivore, herbivore or omnivore? 

 

Watch the video to remind you of our key words, then draw and label the meal you would make. 

This week, we are continuing to classify different animals but we are learning about two different groupings. Vertebrate and invertebrate. 

 

Watch the BBC video below to support your learning. 

Match the pictures to the cards to sort the animals.

This week, we are revisiting classifying animals. Remember the groups are: mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, insects and fish. 

 

 

This week, we are continuing with senses. Can you make a box to experiment with the sense of touch? Get a member of your family to pop objects into the box and you have to describe what you feel and guess the object. 

 

If you don't have a box, watch the video below for ideas on how to make your own. 

Below you will find a website full of experiments to try for the 5 senses. Which ones do you like the best? 

Revisit naming the 5 senses and which body parts we use for each sense. Watch this video from Oak National and complete the activities set in the video.

This week, we are experimenting using our senses. First we would like you to use your sense of hearing to name the animal you think it is. Click the video below to start the sounds. The answer will show up after each sound is played. Can you get more right than Miss Hyde? 

Experimenting using sight. What would happen if we didn't have one of our senses? 

 

Take a piece of paper and a pen, felt tip or pencil. 

 

Draw a picture of something such as a flower, a house, a car. 

 

Now turn your paper over and this time try and draw it with your eyes closed or something covering your eyes.

What does the picture look like? How did you feel when drawing it? Was it trickier? Did you need to use any other of your senses to support you such as touch?

Sing along to the song to name your body parts!

Activity One

Draw yourself and label with the correct names for the body parts. 

eyes, nose, ears, mouth, arms, shoulders, hands, elbows, back, chest, hips, legs, knees, feet, ankles, fingers, hair, head, teeth. 

5 Senses 

There are 5 senses that we use and these are linked to different body parts. taste, smell, touch, hear, sight. Watch the video below and try the quiz! 

Think back to our lesson on tasting the crisps, watching the skittles merge into different colours, and guessing the instrument. 

Activity Two - write the senses that match the correct body part.
