Project- Predator- Term 6

Our new topic starting in June 2020 (Term 6) for home and school learning is Predator!

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side!

This half term, we’ll invite some amazing animals into our classroom to discover how they move, what they feel like and what they eat. We’ll also program a toy to move across a grid – will it be caught by a predator? We’ll learn about the different parts of a plant and how some plants are predators! From our investigations about the human skeleton, we’ll find out how muscle make the bones move. We’ll investigate food chains and learn about how animals find their food. Using the internet, we’ll research the majestic peregrine falcon and discover where crocodiles live. After our research, we’ll create an exciting aquatic animation.

At the end of the ILP, we’ll show you a range of animal fact presentations, make animal collages and learn about the interesting (and disgusting) world of parasites!

Help your child prepare for their project

Predators can be found in deserts, jungles, oceans or even in your own back garden! Why not go for a walk and see which animals and plants you can identify? You could also visit a zoo, thinking about which animals are predators and which animals might be their prey. Alternatively, put bird food in the garden to see if you can attract any visitors!

 

Pre- teach sessions

Between 8.15am-8.40am, we offer pre-teach sessions to children in Year 3 and 4. During these sessions we will be teaching the children the concepts and skills prior to a lesson on the subject, or addressing a previous misconception they may have had in a lesson. The idea is to give the student a 'preview' or a 'review' of a lesson that will allow them to evaluate and extend their knowledge during future lessons. Pre-teaching is a tool that provides children with more knowledge and confidence when approaching a new topic which helps to increases engagement and reduce frustration. Your child will receive a letter if they have been invited to these sessions. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you have any questions.
