Researching Extreme Animals in Year 5

As we approach our new book in English, we would like the children to begin to prepare themselves for the independent write they will do in class just before the end of this term. The book we are studying is called ‘Extreme Animals’, which is about the amazing adaptations some animals have developed to survive.

Your child will need to choose one animal from the sheet (available from the school office) to research further. Please help your child to learn about their chosen animals:

- Physical characteristics

- Habitat

- Diet

- Location (ocean)

- Special abilities

- Predators / prey

This will need to be completed and handed in by Monday 1st April. We really hope you enjoy finding out about these creatures, as they are each quite mind blowing.
