In Science we have been busy learning how to classify animals. We started off completing an activity where we had to classify lots of pictures of animals into groups. The first two groups we needed to sort our animals into were vertebrates and invertebrates. Vertebrates are animals with backbones and Invertebrates are animals without backbones. We then needed to sort our vertebrates group into a further five groups. A description of these five groups can be found below.
Birds have a back bone, they have feathers. They lay eggs in a nest. The eggs have a hard shell. They have a steady body temperature. Examples: Eagle, Hawk and Falcon.

Amphibians have a backbone. They lay eggs in water. During their life cycle they change from a stage when they live entirely in water to a stage when they can live in water and on the land. They do not have a steady body temperature.
Examples: Frog , Toad, and Salamander.

A brief description of the story:
Little Yellow Dog & Ginger Cat fight over a chair, because they say it is their favourite chair.
What did you like about the book?:
My favourite bit of the book is the end, because they become friends after a big fight.
I give this book a 9/10, because I love the illustrations that are in the book and I love the way they are set out.
We met a man called Bob and he came from St. Vincent de Paul Society. Bob was talking to us about the poor people. Bob was here to talk to us about the poor people, because his job is to help the poor people. Bob told us about clothes and toys to donate. Bob kept talking to us about it and he said, “Ask your mum or dad to see if you can donate some clothes or toys.” Bob gave us a bag to put clothes and toys in and he also gave us a bookmark. We were asked to bring clothes or toys or both in to school so we can donate it to people that need it.
All donations can be placed in the St. Vincent de Paul donation boxes located in each of the Nativity buildings.
