Weird and wonderful plants and animals!
Our planet is so diverse and there are thousands of different species of plants and animals.
Watch the videos/links below to find out about some of the strangest living organisms.
Use the information above to help you design your own animal or plant. Draw a detailed image and then annotate around it with facts and ideas. You need to consider:

Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.
Please practise your spellings daily. These lists are on our class page. You can practise the Year 1/2, Year 3/4 and the Year 5/6 spelling lists. You all know which spellings you should be practising anyway.
