A Journey

We will immerse ourselves in the world of animals throughout this topic. We learn about what animals need to survive and how their offspring grow from babies to adults. We continue our learning outside the classroom, as we visit our local nature reserve, making explicit links between our science and geography topic of ‘our local area’.
