Our first topic for 2020 will be Animals including humans.
We will be exploring animals, birds and plants from around the world. The children will find out about life cycles of birds, animals and humans. They will identify how a food chain works, investigating who is at the top and how food chains link different species together.
Year 2 enjoyed an animal encounter today. They met several creatures and learnt about their habitats and how some creatures have adapted to new environments. They had the opportunity to handle or stroke some of the creatures and had a lot of questions to ask. The visit had a link to endangered species and the children found out about how some habitats are being lost around the world as a result of changing land use. We have been asking the question 'why should we look after our planet?'The year 2 children have had a first hand experience with some unique and unusual species that are being affected by the decisions we make as humans. They all engaged with the Zoo Lab presenter and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
