Our wider curriculum unit this half term is, 'The journey of life.'
In this unit children will have a chance to learn deeply about the growth and development of plants and different animals. In science lessons they will study the life cycles of mammals, amphibians, insects and birds. When looking at the lifecycle of plants children will be given the opportunity to propagate plants from different parts of the parent plant and create booklets detailing their learning from this unit.
Children will discover, connect and compare animal life cycle with the human being development since the earliest stages. By learning the different life cycles children will have a clear idea of the different animal needs including their social, environmental, food and parental needs.
