Year One have been investigating different kinds of animals this term and how they can be classified in different ways. We firstly classified animals according to whether it is a mammal, fish, bird or insect. Next, we introduced the terms omnivore, herbivore and carnivore. As part of an experiment the children had to discover whether pretend samples of animal poo belonged to a meat eater, a plant eater or an animal that eats both meat and plants. They had great fun finding plants, vegetables, fruit and bones in the samples. They quickly worked out that if they only found bones it must belong to the carnivore, and if it only had plants it must belong to the herbivore.
