  • Hi thank you for this brilliant unit of work, the children in my class have really enjoyed the topic so far this term. I just wanted to bring your attention to unit 6 on food chains. I printed out the animal cards ready for my next lesson and noticed that I couldn't seem to make many food chains with the cards that were available. I just wondered if there were some missing cards? The worksheet asks the children to describe which habitat the food chain came from but I can't seem to make a complete food chain for the desert, (only have a meerkat) tropical rainforest (only have a jaguar and a tree frog) or the ocean (only have a shark). Many Thanks.

    • Hi cath-hunt,
      Thank you for commenting to tell us about this. I'll get this resource looked at right away! Have a lovely day :)

    • Hi there,
      Thanks for pointing this out - we have streamlined the 'food chains sorting activity' cards to make them more straightforward. To allow the cards to be used in as many food chains as possible, we have used images intended to be general representations of animals or plants rather than specific examples - e.g. the image of grass should represent 'vegetation'. I hope this helps!

  • I absolutely loved this unit! I sat down to start planning and four myself getting very side tracked with ideas. I came across this and it has incorporated EVERYTHING I want to include this term. Cannot thank you enough - I'm am looking forward to teaching my little year 2 scientists all about this unit. Brilliant!
