Hello Year 2!

Do you remember planting bulbs earlier this year? Well, they have grown! Lots of leaves but no flowers yet. Watch this space!

Hi Year 2! Here's this week's science activity, enjoy. smiley

 

This week, we are thinking about what different animals need in their natural habitats to survive.

Read the information below with an adult.

 

Animals and their habitats

Draw a suitable habitat for one of your favourite animals. Make sure water, food, shelter and possibly camouflage are available.

Hi Year 2

I hope you had a good Bank holiday weekend. Did you do anything to commemorate V.E. Day?

Here's this week's science; we are thinking about things that are living, things that are dead and things that have never lived.

Work your way through the document below. smiley

Hello Year 2, another activity for you.   cool

Hi Year 2!  How are you all doing? Here's another science activity for you. smiley

 

How do animals, within a habitat, depend on each other?

Create a simple food chain to show the chain of food an animal eats.

 

Here's some examples for you:-

Hi Year 2!

Hope you are all safe, happy and enjoying the sunny weather.  Don't forget you can contact me and ask for help through my email  c.tabberner@woodgate.bham.sch.uk    

New Science Topic

Under normal circumstances, we would be beginning a new topic together about 'Habitats.'

Habitat refers to the natural home or environment of an animal, plant or other organism.

 

Walk around your garden (or somewhere close to your home when you are taking your daily exercise) and look for any animals and plants living in that habitat. Sketch what you find and  label each sketch. Ask your adults to help name the ones you don't know.

 

Think about why different animals and plants are suited to their chosen habitats.

For example, woodlice.

 

Where are woodlice found?

You will find woodlice under logs, rocks and piles of leaves because they like dark, damp places

Why do woodlice live in damp places?
They live where there is decaying organic matter, these are usually damp and dark places filled with food and shelter.

Planting seeds and bulbs

During our last science lesson, we planted seeds and bulbs. These have been moved to Year 2's raised gardening bed so that they will be watered by the rain whilst we are not a school.

 

Following on from Mrs Peake's idea of drawing the lifecycle of a butterfly, research the lifecycle of a bean seed.  Draw diagrams and label.
