Classifying animals

This week we looked at sorting animals into groups. Miss Mabon started our lesson by modelling different ways we might do this. There was a range of different animal cards and we then classified them into:

-Land and water animals

-Animals with a pattern and animals without


Then, we split off into groups and we sorted the animals ourselves. The Year 1 team were very impressed with the alternative ways we independently sorted animals. Some groups sorted them by:

-Big and small animals

- Animals with four legs and animals with two legs

-Animals with wings and no wings
