Animals including humans

This week we have learnt about the difference between reptiles and mammals. We found out that reptiles have scales and mammals have hair/fur. We now know that reptiles are cold blooded but mammals are warm blooded. We know that reptiles lay eggs but mammals give birth.

We were extremely lucky to get to feel real life reptiles such as geckos and a boa constrictor snake. We found out lots of facts about reptiles and completed reports on snakes.

Next week we will be looking at birds, fish and amphibians. In our choosing time and at home we have been researching facts about these animal groups so we can share our facts with the class next week.

What can you do at home?
– Research facts about carnivores.
– What is the difference between a herbivore and a carnivore?
– Make a report about your favourite animal.
