Species of the Week

Every week in Forest School we learn about our species of the week. The species is either a flora (plant/tree) or fauna (animal).


Last term we focused mainly on flora, learning about the Oak, Holly, Norway Spruce and Ash Tree. We also learnt about Fungi/Fungus which is neither a flora or fauna but a living group of organisms which are classified in their own kingdom. Fungi include: mushrooms, moulds and yeasts. 


This term we are going to be focusing on mainly fauna (animals). Each week information will be posted below, explaining the species of week.


You could use non fiction books or the internet to find out further information or fun facts about the species, perhaps you could draw a picture or make a model?
