Spring 1 - Living Things & Their Habitats (Classification)


This half term in Year 6, we will be working as scientists to study the topic of Classification!


We will begin by scientifically grouping animals in lots of different scientific ways (type of animal, diet, skeleton, etc.) before using this knowledge to construct our own classification keys.

Once we have looked at animals, we will be learning about other living things: first plants, and then micro-organisms - where we will be conducting an experiment to prove that micro-organisms are alive!

We will close our topic by researching and creating a fact file on a famous scientist synonymous with the topic of Classification.


To see what we are learning about in more detail, take a look at our Pledge Sheet and Knowledge Organiser below!
