Summer 2: Paws, Claws & Whiskers

Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching whiskers... What's you favourite animal? One that Meows? One that barks? Or maybe one that scurries or slithers?


From pets at home to animals in the zoo, the children find out what animals like to eat and where they like to sleep. Do they know how to look after a rabbit? A cat? Or even a snake?

They'll find out how the elephant got his trunk and how the rhinoceros got his leathery skin... Perhaps they'd like to know how the dog got it's waggy tail? Developing their understanding of food chains and ecosystems, the children will learn about the physical characteristics of carnivores and herbivores.
