As we are reaching the end of the half term, we wanted to use this opportunity to see how much you’ve learned during our Science unit:

I can share what I’ve learned during ‘Living things and their habitats’.

Here a couple of ideas that might help you to get started:

• a poster with animals in one particular habitat or animals in different habitats
• a collage of photographs that you take in some habitats near you
• tell a story about some animals in their habitat on a comic strip
• search for a template online or create your own
• a series of food chains with arrows to show the transfer of energy
