Woodland Habitats

Woodland Habitats
In the forest, use keys to identify and classify real live invertebrate animals from the woodland habitat. Construct and interpret food chains in that habitat. Threats to the forest and the potential impact on the animal species found will be considered in relation to the climate and ecological emergency.

Learning Objectives 

  • to use classification keys to group, identify and name animals
  • to explore the reasons why an animal is in a particular group
  • to construct and understand food chains from a habitat
  • consider threats to the forest and the potential impact on the animal species found

Y4 Science
Living things and their habitats

  • recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways
  • explore and use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment
  • recognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things

Animals, including humans

  • construct and interpret a variety of food chains, identifying producers, predators, and prey ¬†
