>TOPIC - predator and prey

Yesterday you learned about food chains - here are two great pictures sent to me by Jakub and Lewis...

Watch the video below to remind you what you learned yesterday...

Aesop - the Ancient Greek storyteller told this fable:

One day a fox went hunting in the woods. He spotted a rabbit in the underbrush and chased him out into the open. The rabbit darted this way and that. The fox followed. The rabbit ran, with the fox at his heels, around trees and through an open field.

When the fox began to tire of the chase, the rabbit, with one last burst of energy, dashed into the thicket and escaped to safety.

As the fox turned back for home, a shepherd who had seen the chase jeered at him, saying, "Some hunter you are! You let that rabbit get the best of you!"

"You forget," replied the tired fox, "I was only running for my dinner. He was running for his life!"

Think about this fable for a moment or two. Do you understand what Aesop meant? Can you see how even though both animals were running they had very different reasons to run? Which of the animals had the most important reason to run and why?

The fox was hunting the rabbit. The fox is the predator. The rabbit is the prey.


Animals have adapted to use camouflage. Camouflage helps animals avoid being attacked by a predator. It can also help predators catch their prey without being spotted.

Look closely at this picture...

Can you see anybody?

Chinese artist Liu Bolin has spent years perfecting the art of camouflage.

His aim - to disappear into the background.....can you see him?

Watch the film below to see what he does....

Here is today's challenge. It is a photograph challenge.

Can you create a 'Where's Wally?' type photo and send it to me?

a) Camouflage yourself within a photo... maybe in your house or garden... can you hide yourself so that you are there but cleverly camouflaged? We can only see your face or hand or foot if we really look closely.

b) Camouflage a toy or other object in an odd place within a photo. It is there and once you've seen it you can spot it but it is so cleverly hidden.

The trick is not to make it impossible...make it clever laugh
