Circle of Life- Summer 2

Our final project in Year 4 is called the ‘Circle of Life’. As part of this project will be looking at animals and their habitats, the rainforest, life cycles, food chains and answering the project question- are humans producers, predators or prey?

Have a look on this website to start off your research or you could also;

  • Investigate different life cycles

  • Explore rainforests around the world and look at their layers

  • Find out what producers, predators and prey means

  • Find out about the digestive system in humans and what happens to our bodies when we eat.

  • Use a map or atlas┬áto locate different rainforests

We will hopefully be visiting Brockholes as part of our project. Have a look on their website to find out more information about the centre before visit.

    Food chains are quite difficult to make to me and I struggle unless I have all animals,producers on cards in front of me.
    Here are some food chains
    Leaf : Producer -> Caterpillar : Primary consumer -> Bird : Secondry consumer -> Cat : Tertiary consumer, predator.

    Did you know the only bird that can fly bacwards is the humming bird?
    Did you know penguins and chickens can’t fly?
    Did you know that humans evolved from apes but they don’t any more because the species was extinct?!

    If I could rename an animal I’d rename the pig and call it the Doled!

  • Dante says:

    If you think you know about life cycles you may think that they’re easy but I have a life cycle that nobody will be able to solve really here it is what came first if you need a egg to make a chicken but you need a chicken to make an egg how would it work unless you think about like God because he created animals but back to life cycles. I really liked Joseph’s life cycle because It was actually really good and looked pretty accurate.

  • Ahmed says:

    My favourite animal is a cheetah because it is very fast and I like it because the bones stick out like me.
    Cheetahs speed is 80- 120km per hour (in shot bursts,running)
    The mas of an adult of is 21 – 72KG.
    There is also different kind of animals like anphibions, insects, mammals , reptiles, fish and birds.
    Cheetahs are in th column of the mammals because they do not lay eggs and they are warm blooded.

    Penguins are birds but we do not fly instead I swim.There long sharp claws help them grip the ice. They live in the artic. There ears are underneath the orange fur. They recognise each other by voices not by sight. When they are adults they are about the size off a three four year old. They use their flippers to swim in the ocean and they have very loud voices. While the mums and dads find food the chick stay close together.

    Here are some rainforest locations,

    Congo Rive Basin Rainforest (Africa), Madagascar rainforest (Africa), Amazon rainforest (South America), Central rainforests of America (America), Olympic rainforest (North America), Rain Forests of southeas (Asia)
    Here are some facts about Insects,
    The Ladybird is actually a Beetle. A honey bee colone actually produce 100kg of honey that’s 220 jars, a sea skaters leg hairs trap air, enabling it to float on water. Male giraffe weevil use their long necks to fights. Mosquitos are attracted to feet.

    In class we have been doing food chains, as part of our project ” the circle of life “.here is a simple food chain , a caterpillar eats a leaf , then a bird eats the caterpillar,after that a cat would eat the bird .Our new project is very interesting and I am glad we have this project because I absolutely love animals and it is also very fun learning more about animals.

  • Matthew says:

    If I could any animal in the world I would have to get a emperor tamarin which is a monkey because they are really cute and they have a beard.My Nan would probably get a Italian whippet or a Rat but if she had the spaces she would get a horse.My Dad would get a Manchester terrier or a retriever because he really like sporty dogs.My Brother would get a schnauzer I don’t know why but he likes dogs with a beard and quite a lot of hair.
