Year 2’s first Science topic of the year is ‘Living Things’. To start the topic, the children have been thinking about things which are living, once-living and never-living or non-living. They have created a list of properties to help test which category something belongs to.
The children went on a hunt around school to find living and non-living things, as well as challenging themselves to find once-living things too. They worked in pairs and were excellent detectives, using their knowledge to find a wide range of things around around the school to fit into these categories. It was lovely to hear them asking each scientific questions about the properties of each item.
