Use a scientist mentioned in the 2014 Science curriculum as an introduction to classifying living things.Included in the statutory requirements for the new Year 6 Living Things and their Habitats programme of study are the expectations that pupils should be taught to:
- describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro-organisms, plants and animals
- give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics The accompanying notes and guidance suggest that pupils could find out about: “…the significance of the work of scientists such as Carl Linnaeus, a pioneer of classification”.
