Activity:

Create a fact file on a nocturnal animal.

Look on the Nar Valley Animal project for examples of  the Y2/3 planning template and examples to remind you of the features needed – be as creative as you can. This could be in the shape of your animal of choice, it could in the shape of a full moon, surprise us.

There is also  extra information about nocturnal animals attached below to help you if needed.

If you are up as we go into the evening, go outside, sit quietly and listen, what do you hear? What do you see?

Curl up and enjoy as many books and stories about nocturnal animals – there are so many out there

Science:

Build a habitat. Any habitat you like, a bug hotel, a hedgehog, owl or rodent for instance

See attachments for advice and instructions on a hedgehog home, but there are many others you could research. Go and have a look around your garden, can you see a natural habitat. Turn over a log, what’s underneath?

Take a photo for your project – send the photo in , we could then make a gallery on the website
