Science learning

Sunday 17 July 2022

This half term, Year 2 have enjoyed learning all about animals (including humans) in our science topic.

This week, as the science learning comes to an end, the children will be self assessing their understanding of the vocabulary as shown below.

Our visit to Yorkshire Wildlife Park allowed the children to use their knowledge learnt at school to describe the animals we saw.

We saw a wallaby which is a mammal because it has live babies but we didn’t see any fish.

We saw a lion and a lion is a mammal because it has fur. We didn’t see any amphibians.

The BBC website is great to support science learning and these videos are a good recap of our learning.

To share their knowledge, ask your child to have a go at these true or false statements about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
