In Year 4 we have created some fantastic food chains. We had to think about the meanings of the word predator, prey, consumer, scavenger and producer. We thought of examples for each of these in groups. Once done, we looked at food chains and how they show the transfer of energy from food to food. We used all this information to make some food chain pyramids.

some animals that are predators can also be prey.
A snake can disguise itself to capture birds (Check out seven worlds on BBC)
Scavengers don't hunt for their food. They feed off food already killed by something else.
