Year 2 have just had a wonderful Science lesson. We have been learning about living things and thinking about what is currently living, what was once living and what never lived. The children have been working hard to consider what it means to be living. The children understand that plastic, rock and metal are things that have never lived. Trees, plants, insects, animals are things that are living and leaves fallen from trees, wood and paper are things that once lived.
Today we took our Science lessons outside and looked for microhabitats. We learnt that microhabitats are small habitats such as under a rock, in the petal of a flower etc. The children loved finding things that were living, things that are no longer living or things that never lived.
