105062 - Lower KS2 High Ability [THIS DOCUMENT]


This resource enables students to use their visit to Robin Hill to begin to see that animals can be classified in a variety of ways.

Contextual Summary

This resource links to the National Curriculum for Science, (recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways). This on-site science activity enables students to work scientifically in observing and collecting data and information about birds of prey at Robin Hill Country Park. They will use scientific terminology to explain and describe their findings. This resource engages students with specific elements of their visit, linking their learning to the curriculum; they will gain knowledge from the Owl Show and Falconry Display and can then explore this information scientifically (either on-site or in the classroom later).

Key Skills Practised
  • Students explore ways of grouping a selection of living things
  • Students will make accurate observations
  • Students will use scientific terminology to describe their findings
Learning Opportunities


Students should have had some previous discussions about different birds of prey. „ It would also be useful if students know about different features, such as beak, eyes, talons, etc.


Students visit the Falconry Display and the Owl Show. „ Students complete the Science resource/s linked to this document. Students can work individually, in pairs, or small groups, using scientific terms to describe their observations. „ Students use scientific knowledge and understanding to explain their findings.


The table section of the resource on page 3 could be completed post-visit back in the classroom, and could form the beginning of a larger research project into birds of prey in the UK and their characteristics.

Learning Outcomes

Students will recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways. Students will be able to name birds of prey that can be found in the local and wider environment, and their features.
