Stars Class Curriculum Project

Stars Class Project - Predator

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side. Find out who’s coming to visit. Is it a bug munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it? Learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus flytrap. Be inspired to write an informative leaflet all about your favourite predator and compose a poem about a predator or its prey. Then use what you know about the best of the beasts to create the ultimate predator; the apex of the food chain. Cross your dad with a peregrine falcon or your nan with a great white shark. What incredible species can you imagine? Feeling peckish? Let’s jump aboard the food chain.

Additional  Information

During term 5, your child will be participating in weekly Forest School sessions. The sessions will take place on a Monday afternoon in the forest area within the school grounds.

Please ensure that your child has the following clothing to change into each Monday:

  • Outdoor shoes – preferably wellingtons
  • A warm coat – preferably waterproof
  • Trousers (for example: tracksuit bottoms)
  • An extra layer of clothing depending on the weather

Please write your child’s name on their clothing.

 

During Forest School sessions, children are encouraged to work with others to carry out activities such as den/shelter building, role play, exploration, practical and creative skills and tasks. I am sure that your child will make the most of this wonderful opportunity to learn outdoors, and apply their new learning within the classroom.

PE is on a Thursday this term!
