This half term we are studying materials and their properties. We will classify, identify, compare and investigate their uses and limitations. We follow the National Curriculum guidance and AT1 structured investigations.
This half term we will looking in detail at how humans change as they grow older, drawing on our own observations. Children will be introduced to the three basic needs of animals for survival (water, food and air). They will apply this knowledge, alongside research from secondary sources, to suggest ways to look after pets. The unit ends with children looking at healthy lifestyles, including the importance of exercise, healthy eating and hygiene. These healthy living lessons develop ‘working scientifically’ skills through investigating the impact of exercise on our bodies and how handwashing is essential for good hygiene.
