Food chains and microhabitats 12.05.22

In Science, the children are learning about living things and their habitats. 

Last week they learnt about food chains and did some research on what animals eat. They created their own paper chain food chains to show what they had found out. They also gave thought to which habitat they might see these food chains in. 

This week, the children went into the school grounds to investigate microhabitats. A microhabitat is a tiny habitat such as under a stone or in some rotting leaves. They spotted different organisms in their microhabitats such as slugs, snails, ants and woodlice. There were even some special visitors to our pond habitat - see if you can spot them in the photographs. 

The children have shown excellent scientific enquiry skills and we are really proud of their increasing scientific knowledge. Well done Year 2!
