Identifying, classifying and grouping

Picture 1

Our Key Stage 1 children have been exploring the school grounds throughout the year to explore and answer questions about animals that may live there including foxes, birds and squirrels which have been spotted and look for evidence of their habitats.


Through a recent school visit children were able to have a hand on opportunity with various animals where they were able to become familiar with the common names of some fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, including those that are kept as pets. They then used this visit to find more information about these animals.

Classifying materials by their properties

Key Stage 1 children have been classifying and sorting materials by finding out how they change when wet. They decided that the materials that changed when water was put onto them were not waterproof and the materials that didn't change were waterproof.
