Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Animal Classification

On Friday, Year 6 had an Open Science day that allowed Parents to come and witness a Science lesson in Bullfinches and Doves.

How do we classify animals? That was our starting inquiry as we dived into the many different words and definitions where we were challenged to match them up. We soon found that we needed to equip ourselves with our dictionaries for this task.

After a detailed example of a classification key, the students were ushered into groups to create their own classification key of their own. Pupils had to work together to try and figure out what questions they needed to ask to classify their animals correctly.

In the end, pupils were able to create some detailed and organized classification keys.
