Science lessons in Year 5 have involved the pupils learning about the life cycle of different animals. We started off this work by watching some brief National Geographic videos. One of the themes was how different animal groups have different life cycles.
This then led to the pupils researching amphibians, mammals, birds, fish, insects and reptiles. Our first task was to come up with a definition for each group. This was then used to help classify different animals as we continued with our work.
Each pupil was presented with a series of diagrams showing the life cycle for a certain animal. Our task was to describe what is happening at every stage in each diagram.
