Tracking the Wolf

When tracking wild animals it is important to have as much information about them as possible. We have now found out quite a lot about wolves and their needs and habits. The Pioneers have been very interested in poo. Today we did some research into different types of poo,what animals eat and how we can classify animals. They are now able to use the words carnivore,herbivore and species. We discussed different poo and why different animals left behind different droppings. Mr Grason joined us to help with this work and he really enjoyed it. This work was fascinating.

Perhaps we will go looking for wolf poo in the forest. Please feel free to pop in and have a look at our samples in the morning…

Very happy learning.


We’re Going On A Wolf Hunt

After reading Little Red Riding Hood,it became clear that everyone was interested in the wolf-his teeth,his claws and his tongue with dripping spit. we have watched videos and looked closely at his teeth. A skull caught the interest of many. Last week the children went to the forest to look for any clues or signs that there may be wolves in our grounds. Shadows were seen. There may have been footprints. Some even said to have seen the wolf pass the window. We have painted,drawn and written about wolves. We have found out about tracking animals by following signs left behind-poo,fur caught on branches and footprints, There may be an odd carcass too.

We went out to look a second time and found a letter left for us. The letter asked us to make some snacks,build a den and write a book and make some warning signs. All of these jobs are in hand, 

Visit the classroom for more detail. Take a closer look at our clues and be amazed by the most wonderful work.
