Year 3 have been learning about animals and their food chains as part of their new topic, ‘Predator’. The children learnt the difference between predator and prey and enjoyed making food chains using paper cups. They were able to label each part of their food chain with new vocabulary they have learnt such as: consumer, producer, predator, prey, apex predator.

In DT, the children thought carefully about the features of different predators that help them to catch their prey. They combined the features of different animals such as sharks, tigers, polar bears and eagles, to create their very own predator. The children then brought their predators to life by junk modelling them using a range of carefully selected materials.
