As part of our 'living things and their habitats' topic, we learnt all about food chains! We had a go at using some pictures of different plants and animals and putting them into a food chain and orally explaining what was happening in our food chain.

We had a lesson on 'pattern seeking' and investigated whether or not all apples have the same amount of seeds and made predictions about whether or not the bigger the apple, the more seeds it has. We started the lesson by making hypotheses and discussing our thoughts, then cut open different sized apples and counted how many seeds they had inside. We found out that just because an apple is big, it does not mean it has a lot of seeds!

We went on a mini beast hunt to find out how many different mini beasts live in micro-habitats around the school. We recorded our results using a tally chart and converted our data into a bar chart! The most common mini beasts found were spiders, ants, beetles, woodlice, worms and snails!
