Deadly 60 - We are learning about some of the world's deadliest animals, their habitats, lifecycles and what they need to survive.

This term we are learning about some of the world's deadliest animals.  We will be discovering facts about their lifecycles, habitats, how they reproduce and what they need to survive. Some staff from White Post Farm will be visiting our school in February and they will be bringing some amazing animals for us to see and maybe hold!
The children have been learning about the things that all animals need in order to survive. Here are a selection of their ideas. Click on the pictures to enlarge.
