Upper Key Stage 2: Year 6 – Classification

With some species of mushroom only separated at a microscopic level, classification of species is more important than ever for British conservation.With over 60,000 species currently listed in the UK, classification and organisation of these organisms is essential to our understanding and learning of the natural world.

This is, however, an enormous task which as far from complete. It could well be students in your school class who help classify our wildlife in the future.

In ‘Classification’ we’ll cover:

  • Classification exercises to organise common British species into groups
  • Common features that help us group animals together
  • Old and new methods of classification

Our school nature walks run for approximately one hour and can take place within the school grounds or further a field in surrounding countryside.

Based in Bolton, we travel to primary schools right across the North West. For details on our other Key Stage 2 walks, click here.
