Science

Key Stage 1

Our topic for this term is ‘Living things and their habitats’ and we will identify things that are living, dead and things that have never been alive. We will explore that animals live in different habitats which they are suited to and describe different habitats.

Key Stage 2

Our topic is ‘animals including humans, evolution and inheritance.’

Year 3 and 4

We will identify animals including humans, their feeding and nutrition, support, protection and the function of their digestive system. We will identify the different types of teeth and interpret food chains and classify and name living things.

Year 5 and 6

We will name the main parts of the circulatory system, recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way bodies function, describe the way water and nutrients are transported and the effects of old age. We will also consider how living things have changed over time and have living things produce offspring and how living things have adapted.
