Science should be taught once a week. This could be in the form of an observation, an experiment, a test, identification and classification activities, or gathering and recording data. Your child should be encouraged to explore and question the world around them.
Animals, including humans
Your child should be able to identify and name a variety of common animals and know which group they belong to (fish, amphibian, reptile, bird or mammal), explaining why they belong to this group. They should then be able to identify whether that animal is a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore depending on their diet. The local environment should be explored and children should observe animals in their own habitat, understanding the need for them to live there and the necessity to return any animals taken for study, safely back to their home.
Children will be able to identify, name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which parts are associated with each sense.
