These tasks are a mix of Science, Art, PE, PSHE and RE. Choose at least TWO tasks to complete from the list below:

  1. Create a fact file about a deadly predator. Draw pictures of the predator and label them with information you find out.
    • Where does the predator live?
    • Why does it live there?
    • What does it eat?
    • How does it capture its prey?
    • What special qualities do these predators have?
