Living things and Their Habitats

 

During Spring term we are going to be learning about Living things and Their Habitats. 

In this unit children will learn about a variety of habitats and the plants and animals that live there. They will learn to tell the difference between things that are living, dead and things that have never been alive and will make observations of a local habitat and the creatures that live there, investigating conditions in local microhabitats and how they affect the minibeasts found within them. 

Here are some good websites to explore:

Animals including Humans

 

During Autumn 2 we are going to be learning about Animals including Humans through a range of hands of activities and experiments. Below are a list of the National Curriculum Objectives we will be addressing within this unit of work. 

  • notice that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults
  • find out about and describe the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival (water, food and air)
  • describe the importance for humans of exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food, and hygiene

 

Below are some links the children can explore to find out more about Everyday Materials. 

Everyday Materials

 

During Autumn 1 we are going to learning about Everyday Materials through a range of hands of activities and experiments. Below are a list of the National Curriculum Objectives we will be addressing within this unit of work. 

  • distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made
  • identify and name a variety of everyday materials, including wood, plastic, glass, metal, water, and rock  describe the simple physical properties of a variety of everyday materials
  • compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of their simple physical properties.

Ted's Umbrella

This week we have been learning about which materials are waterproof. We tested a range of different materials to see which would make the best umbrella for Ted. We made predictions before carrying out the experiment. We then tested four different materials and used our observation skills to see what happened to each material when we added water.  

Identifying Materials 

 

The children were given a range of everyday objects and asked to examine them to see if they could identify the material they were made from. The children then had to work together and decide how they wanted to sort the objects, creating their own labels. The class decided to sort them according to their material. 

Seasonal Changes

 

Over the course of this academic year the children are going to be recording and tracking the seasonal changes that take place within a year's time period. Each season we will be taking part in different activities and experiments to get better understanding of what events occur within them. The following National Curriculum Objectives will be covered through this unit of work.

  • observe changes across the four seasons
  • observe and describe weather associated with the seasons and how day length varies.

 

Below is a link where the children can find our more information about each season.

I can identify autumnal items.

Today we have been talking about the season autumn. We discussed how we knew autumn was coming and the signs that we look out for. The children went on an Autumn Scavenger hunt to locate items in the school ground that are found during autumn time. We brought them back to class and labelled the items we found.
