In Year 4, we have been learning about living things and their habitats.

We have been learning about the characteristics of living things and how we know if something is alive.

We have also been grouping animals by thinking about their blood, skin and how they have offspring. We worked with a partner to decide criteria to sort the animals for example gives birth to live young and lives in water.

We had lots of fun trying to find invertebrates outside! We were amazed to find so many in our playground. We discovered that we are vertebrates as we have a back bone- invertebrates do not have a back bone!
