Can I classify different animals?

In science, to follow on from our topic Arctic Explorers, this week we will be classifying animals. Classifying means sorting. Animals can be classified (sorted) into groups depending on their features. Please follow the below link to twinkl to learn about the different ways we classify animals.

We are focussing on
Mammals (all give milk to their young, all have ears)
Birds (have wings and beaks)
Fish (have fins, live in water)

After you have looked at the powerpoint, if you have any toy animals, try and classify them into the 3 groups or do further research on the internet.
Can you list some mammals, birds and fish?

Re read the story of Palm Sunday and think about how the people welcomed Jesus on his donkey. Do you think that would be the same today?

Jesus and his twelves disciples (his friends) walked into the great city of Jerusalem so they could be there to celebrate the festival of Passover. On the way, Jesus said to two of his disciples “Go into the village and you will find a donkey that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it to me.” The two disciples did as Jesus told them and soon came back with the donkey. Jesus then rode into Jerusalem with his disciples walking by his side. When the crowd of people walking to the city saw Jesus coming, they were excited. Some threw their cloaks on the floor to make pathway for Jesus. Others cut down palm leaves to lie in front of him. Many cheered and waved their palm leaves shouting ‘Hosanna. Praise be to God.’

Draw a picture and write a sentence about how you think Jesus would be welcomed into Manchester City Centre today. Would people still wave palm leaves?

YO- Draw a picture, write a sentence how we would welcome Jesus today and why it is different to how he would be welcomed all those years ago.

BR- Draw a picture, write a sentence how we would welcome Jesus today.

GP- Draw a picture and write a simple sentence e.g. Giving Jesus a hug.
