Our Science Unit this term Autumn 2 is 'Animals including humans .'
Our Scientific Enquiry Focus is: identifying and classifying things
Our investigation question is: 'How clean are our teeth during different times of the day?'
By the end of the unit, we will be able to:
To describe the simple functions of the basic parts of the digestive system in humans
To dentify the different types of teeth in humans and their simple functions
To construct and interpret a variety of food chains, identifying producers, predators and prey
To recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways
To explore and use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment
We will work scientifically by:
To use different types of scientific enquiry to answer questions
To ask relevant questions that can be answered using a range of scientific enquiry approaches.
To choose an appropriate approach to an enquiry (eg. fair test or observation).
To set up simple practical enquiries using comparative and fair testing.
