Welcome to Year 3 Class 7

Class Teacher: Mr Diaper

Predator:

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side! Find out who’s  coming to visit… Is it a big munching lizard or an eagle eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it? 
 
Learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus Fly Trap. Be inspired to write an informative leaflet all about your favourite predator and compose a poem about a predator or its prey.  
 
Then use what you know about the best of the beasts to create the ultimate    predator; the apex of the chain. Feeling peckish? Let’s jump aboard the food chain.
