Topic of the term:

Living Things and Their Habitats


As part of this topic, the children will learn all about the differences in the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird. They will also look at the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals. We will link this to planting and growing seeds as well as observing and recording conditions needed. We will be also be studying the changes as humans develop to old age linked to the Biology strand– Animals, including humans.
