To be the best me that I can be

Year 3 / Year 4

Welcome to Key Stage Two! 

Autumn 2023


This term Year 3 / 4’s project is called...


‘Why Do They Keep Trying To Eat Me?’


This is a science and geography based project, where the children will be learning about classification of animals, habitats, food chains, adaptation, biomes and climate zones. The children will be learning about different animal groups then choosing a focus animal. Once they have chosen an animal, they will then prepare an independent exhibit featuring an interpretation board.

Our WOW start to the project is a visit to Paignton Zoo to get a close up look at how these animals live, where they come from and what they need to survive. We can’t wait to share this experience with the children!
