Year 5 Animal life cycles

BansteadPrepSchool

Year 5 have been studying about animal life cycles and created their own presentations to describe the life cycles of mammals. They needed to think about the lifespan of the animal as well as how many offspring they had and how they were looked after. The children could present their information using a format of their own choice and it is fantastic to see how creative they have been.
