Summer Term: 2021
To understand what a habitat is:
In this set of lessons we have an introduction to habitats. In this lesson, we identify different habitats and begin to understand why different animals live in different habitats. Put your knowledge into practice by creating a habitat for your teddy, thinking about what animal they are and what shelter, food and climate they would need to survive in the wild.
In today's lesson, we join Miss Sidenius in learning about what makes a good habitat. We consider the three things that all animals need and make our own habitat for an animal or animals of our choice.
In today’s lesson, we join Mrs Garrard to learn about animals and their habitats. We explore four very different habitats and look closely at why certain animals are suited to living there. We will look at the different tracks that animals make as they move around their habitats. Finally, we will make our very own animal tracks by printing with potatoes.
Early Years National Marine Aquarium story sessions: Who wants to meet a mermaid? Well you can during this session, where Marina our resident Mermaid will read a short story to everybody tuned in – perfect timing before an afternoon nap, or as a gentle, relaxing start to the afternoon. Research has shown that encounters with marine environments (physical or virtual) have a powerful effect on our emotional state and general wellbeing. With the country in lockdown there has never been a more important time to ensure everyone has access to a weekly dose of Ocean.
Why not watch one a week as part of your daily story-time sessions?
