Year 2

Autumn 1 - Everyday Materials

During this topic, children identified and compared the suitability of everyday materials. Children will investigate the properties of common materials such as: wood, plastic, glass, metal and paper. The children conducted experiments to understand how solid objects can change shape through squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.

Autumn 2 - Living Things and Their Habitats

Year 2 know and understand the difference between things that are living, dead and things that have never been alive. They also know the key features of things that are living, as opposed to dead and we can also categorise specimens according to their features. They’ve had the opportunity to observe microhabitats and their inhabitants and begin to understand why they live there. We know that there are a varied amount of microhabitats with different features and conditions.. We now understand what is meant by a food chain and are aware that living things need other living things to survive.

Spring - Animals Including Humans

During this topic, Year 2 will be able to identify different offspring and match them to their adult. We then investigated different lifecycles and had a chance to draw them. We found out about the different needs of animals, including humans, for survival. We learned about the importance of exercise, eating the right amounts if different types of food and hygiene.
