“Hand in hand with God,we live love and learn together.”
“By God’s grace, we learn to loveand love to learn.”
In class two we have science every Monday afternoon.
This year we have learnt about;
Hand Hygiene This 'Hand Hygiene' unit will teach the children how microbes can spread through touch, that we pick up microbes from things we tough and can spread these to other people, it will teach the children that by washing hands can help remove microbes and that washing hands is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of microbes and finally that washing hands with soap and water is better than washing hands with water alone.
Every day materials This ‘Everyday Materials’ unit will teach the children about everyday materials including wood, plastic, metal, water and rock. Children will learn to identify and name everyday materials and will have the opportunity to explore the properties of these materials. Children also will carry out a simple investigation to help them decide which material would be most suitable to use for an umbrella. At the end of the unit children apply their knowledge of everyday materials to sort objects by their properties. A range of learning activities are used in this unit including, discussions, labelling and matching activities, games, and an investigation to encourage where children have the opportunity to ask and find the answers to questions.
Animals including humans: Wild and wonderful creatures.
This 'animals including humans' unit will teach the children to name and locate parts of the human body, including those relating to the senses, be able to identify and name different common animals including fish amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. they will be able to describe and compare the observable features of animals from a range of groups and recognise that animals can be grouped according to whether they are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores, they will also learn the basic needs of animals for survival. The children will also describe the importance of exercise, balanced diet and hygiene for humans and describe the main changes as young animals, including humans, grow into adults.
Plants Growing things
This unit plants growing thing will teach the children to identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees, identify and describe the basic structure of a variety of common flowering plants, including trees. it will encourage the children to observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants and allow them to find out and describe how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy. the children will do this by asking simple questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways and by observing closely, using simple equipment.
