Topic

During our Science work this half term we are going to learn about 'Habitats'. 

To help us learn about the different types of habitats we are going to watch the video clips on the BBC Bitesize Science Daily lesson. Here is the link: Bbc Bitesize Habitats. There are 3 activities they suggest after watching the video clips. You may choose one to do if you wish but you do not have to complete any of the activities. This is just a starter activity to help us in our Science work.
