Y6 Classifying Animals

Pupils group and match animals, including insects, into their recognised animal groups using the correct headings and animal group descriptions (a cut and paste activity).

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro-organisms, plants and animals
  • NaG - pupils should classify animals into vertebrates (reptiles, fish, amphibians, birds and mammals) and commonly found invertebrates (e.g. insects, spiders, snails, worms); discuss reasons why living things are placed in one group and not another
