Year 4 spent an afternoon learning all about invertebrates. They learned of different types of invertebrates, what characteristics they had and then went on a hunt! They were searching the school grounds to see what they could find and identify. We had centipedes, spiders, woodlouse and worms. Year 4 then had to use a classification key to identify all the characteristics that their chosen invertebrate had.
Year 4 were very careful when searching for the insects and took great care in putting the logs and leaves back to allow the insects to remain there.
