  • Exploring and comparing differences between things that are living, dead or never been alive

Living Things & Their Habitats

Through developing a body of key knowledge and concepts, pupils will develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about living things.

Learners will be introduced to the idea that all living things have certain characteristics that are essential for keeping them healthy. By studying your local area children will become familiar with the terms 'habitat' and 'microhabitat' and that animals that live there depend on each other. Pupils work scientifically by sorting and classifying things according to whether they are living, dead or were never alive.

Older pupils use classification systems and keys to identify animals and plants and will learn to describe how living things are classified into groups according to observable characteristics.
