Extinct & Endangered
Come with us on a journey of exploration and investigation to discover all about extinct and endangered creatures. This topic will encourage examination and understanding of the pre-historic world, which is endlessly fascinating. Dinosaurs survived for an astounding 160 million years and we will learn about them in an interactive way. On our journey of discovery, we will learn all about the different pre-historic periods and the types of dinosaurs that roamed our very different world. Dinosaurs were reptiles but very different from reptiles we know today; we will group and classify them according physical features, habitat, and eating habits. This knowledge and understanding will stimulate creative writing: adjectives, synonyms and adventurous noun phrases will describe these magnificent beasts. Also, we will investigate their sheer size through Maths, and use this special data to solve investigations based on place value and number. We will also explore which animals today are in danger of becoming extinct if we don’t look after our vulnerable planet.
