It’s time to take a walk on the wild side!
This half term we will be learning about predators around the world. A predator is wild animal which hunts, or preys on other animals for food. They feed on the flesh of animals to survive.
Predators are carnivores which are animals that only eat other animals. Not all predators are able to kill their own prey and they are known as scavengers. Scavengers will eat the left over scraps and carcasses of an animal that has died or been killed by something else. They are part of the food chain and typically feed on plant eaters, animals known as herbivores. Predators will also eat other predators too. Predators live all around us. They can be found on any continent of the world. They live in different habitats including aquatic, forest and woodlands, grassland, desert and tundra habitats.
Our reading book this half term is ‘The Butterfly Lion’ by Michael Morpurgo.
