Year Two

Year Two Science Activity for Home Learning (Summer Two)

This term your learning objectives are;

Notice that animals, including humans, have offspring that grow into adults.  Find out and describe the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival (water, food, air).  Describe the importance for humans of exercise, eating the right amounts of different kinds of food and hygiene.

From the British Nutrition Foundation, these resources help children across the primary phase to name foods in different food groups and to explain that we need to eat from a range of food groups in order to be healthy.

These activities help children to recognise and name foods in different food groups. They begin to explain that we need to eat from a range of food groups in order to be healthy. Children are also encouraged to carry out a class/family survey to find out how much water they drink each day.

Year One Science Activity for Home Learning (Summer One)

This term our learning objectives are;

 

Identify that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited and describe how the different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants and how they depend on each other.

 

Identify and name a variety of different plants and animals from their habitats.

ACTIVITY

Human and Animal Habitats

These resources are published by the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) and explore human and animal habitats by considering different environments and the animals that live there. The resource develops students' understanding of adaptations for survival in a range of different habitats.

Antarctic

  • Desert
  • Savannah grassland
  • Temperate farmland
  • Temperate forest
  • Temperate pond
  • Sea
  • Tropical rainforest

Year Two Science Activity for Home Learning (Spring Two)

British Science Week is a ten day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.  Science Week 2021 takes place between the 5th and 14th March.  We will be marking British Science Week at Sunnymede School with a range of Science activities and investigations in line with the requirements of The National Curriculum.  The theme of this year's British Science Week is;

 

INNOVATING FOR THE FUTURE

ACTIVITY

 

Your activity for Home Learning this half-term is to enter the British Science Week poster competition.  Full details of how to enter the competition can be found by following the link below.  When you have designed and completed your entry please post a copy on Google Classroom before submitting your entry. 

You’ve got until 25th March 2021 to submit your entries to school, and we will choose five winning entries to go forward to the National Competition along with the name of the artist, email address and postcode location.   Good Luck!

Year Two Science Activity for Home Learning (Spring One)

This term our learning objectives are;

 

Explore and compare the differences between things that are living, dead, and things that have never been alive.

 

Identify that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited and describe how different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants, and how they depend on each other.

 

Identify and name a variety of plants and animals in their habitats, including microhabitats.

ACTIVITY

 

This half term ALL of our learning has been conducted online and thus the examples of work below reflect some of the home learning posted on Google Classroom.

In lesson three we learnt about microhabitats.  Microhabitats are very small habitats that are different from the area around them.  The activity or challenge set in this lesson was to create a bug hotel.

A Selection of our Bug Hotels

Year Two Science for Learning at Home Activity  (Autumn Two)

This term our learning objectives are;

 

Identify that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited and describe how different  habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants and how they depend on each other.

 

Identify how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals, using the idea of a simple food chain, and identify and name different sources of food.

 

Find out about and describe the basic needs of animals for survival (water, food, air)

 

Asking simple questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways, observing closely, using simple equipment

 

 

ACTIVITY

Follow the link below to reinforce your knowledge of food chains.  Then take the quiz to see how much you have remembered.

If you want to make your own model food chain at home, I would love to see what you produce.  Send in any photographs you take of your Science work to the school office FAO Ms Hollowbread.  There will be Science stickers and certificates up for grabs for all those who take part.  Have fun!

Year Two Science Activity for Home Learning (Autumn One)

This term our learning objectives are;

 

Identify and compare the uses of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses.

 

Observe closely using simple equipment.

 

Perform simple tests.

 

Use observations and ideas to suggest answers to simple questions.

ACTVITY

 

Using the skills you acquired from making and testing your bridges now investigate  ...

What makes the best kite?

Should it be flat or does a cylinder kite work too?

Which material is the best?

Make a kite and take it out on a walk on a windy day to test it.  Take some photographs and share them with Ms Hollowbread (Sunnymede Science Lead) You can send them to me via the Sunnymede Office e-mail.  I'd love to see your designs in action.
