Summer 2


Overarching Learning Challenge:

How do living things survive?


Throughout this half term the children within Year One and Two will be exploring how living things survive. They will look closely at how our world changes through the seasons and will learn to identify a wide range of common plants and flowers. Once the children are able to identify these common plants and flowers, they will the look at the different parts of plants and flowers and will work scientifically to investigate what plants need to survive.

The children will then begin to look closely at how humans stay fit and healthy. They will learn the importance of a balanced diet and exercise and will use their knowledge to host a healthy living themed session for parents. Within this session, parents will be treated to a home grown healthy meal, grown, cooked and designed by the children followed by an exercise class that the children will lead themselves.
