This week in Science, as part of our topic, Living things and their habitats, Year 2 explored the differences between living, dead and never lived things. Once understanding the differences between the three categories, we went into the outdoors. Here we found lots of different items and sorted them into things that are living, dead and never lived. Once sorted, the children provided reasons for their choices.
‘The bugs are moving so they are living’ – Tom
‘Cups haven’t been attached to anything like a tree so they have never lived’ – Frankie
‘I think the logs are dead because they have come off the tree but are not growing any more’ – Logan
