Systems and Relationships – Food Chains and Food Webs

Our new topic this term is Systems and Relationships.

We will be looking at the different biomes in the world, and the habitats of animals.

Along with this we will look at ecosystems, endangered animals, as well as food chains and webs.

I thought this song might help you get into the swing of things!

Here are two great YouTube videos to help you understand

the importance of food chains, food webs and habitats

You may use the link below to help you better understand ecosystems and food chains.

Woodlands Resources – food chains

What do you think about this topic so far? Are you enjoying it?

How do you think man has contributed to destroying animal habitats?

Why is it important to have and to maintain ecosystems throughout the world?

The Piano – Amazing Animation by Aidan Gibbons, Music by Yann Tiersen

We acknowledge and thank Aidan Gibbons and Yann Tiersen for this wonderful and amazing animation.

As part of our RE unit this term on New Beginnings,

we watched the above animation called the Piano.

It fitted in well with our discussion of memories, and losing people we love.

As part of Literacy, and RE, we wrote narratives based on the animation.

We enjoyed writing our short stories, and we hope you enjoy reading some of the finished pieces. 

Please feel free to leave a comment.


We take this opportunity to wish all our mum’s a very happy Mother’s Day.

 We hope you have a chance to sit down and relax on your special day.

Allow the children to pamper you and make you feel extra special.

Why not sit quietly and enjoy the video which we have included above.

We hope you enjoy your day, and that you treasure

the beautiful hand-crafted cards which the children made for you.


 What did you do for your mum on mother’s day?

Did you make her feel special? Did you tell her you love her?

Did you say ‘thank you’ for everything that she does for you?

Write back and let me know if your mum enjoyed her day.
