Science – Animals

In science we have been learning to describe how a habitat meets the basic needs of an animal.

We made our own Tops Trumps Cards for the animals deciding upon a score out of 10 for habitat, diet and speed of the chosen animal.

Here we are making and playing with the cards.

The National Curriculum says pupils in Year 2 should be able to:

  • 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.
