Year 6 Classifying Animals at Stepney Farm

Year 6 went to Stepney Farm to classify animals and plants. We did three activities there.

  • We discussed and classified leaves in various different ways and put them into a Venn diagram.
  • We walked through the farm looking at all the animals. Using a classification key, we identified features of the animals we observed and made out which group they belong to: mammal, amphibian, reptile, bird, fish (vertebrates) or insect (invertebrates).
  • Finally, we played a classification bingo game with plants.

Back in school, we wrote newspaper reports about our Stepney Farm visit.
