Science - Spring 2 - Habitats and Food Chains
In the second half of this term we learn about habitats and food chains. We discuss the things that all animals need to stay alive: food, water, warmth, shelter, safety and oxygen. We learn about the habitats that different animals live in to get everything they need.
This unit involves some outside learning. We usually take a trip to Worth woods to look at microhabitats and to do some investigations about the animals we find there. This can be done just as easily on a family walk. We also identify dangers to wildlife in the local environment and discuss ways we can make positive changes.
