Year 6 Learn About Classification at Forest School
Year 6 kicked off the term with a visit to Forest School this morning to extend our knowledge of classification. We were specifically looking at invertebrates and were guided around Forest School by Michael Jones and his team from the Thames Basin Heaths Partnership. We were able to look closely at the living things we found and use a variety of resources including classification keys and then gather the insects and arachnids to sketch in detail. The children have all been given a pocket guide to heathland and a Thames Basin Heath map in case they wish to visit the local area and explore further.
Quotes from Year 6:
‘Today I tried to be brave and next time I would like to find more animals.’ - Christos
'Today I learnt that centipedes and millipedes are classified as Myriapods.' – Noah
'One thing I learnt today is the difference between a Harvestman and other arachnids.' – Henry
