Understanding the World

People and Communities

Children enjoy joining in with family customs and routines.  They talk about past and present events in their own lives and in the lives of family members.  They know that other children don't always enjoy the same things, and are sensitive to this.  They know about similarities and differences between themselves and others, and among families, communities and traditions.

 

 

The World

Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things.  They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another.   They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes.

 

 

Technology

Children complete a simple program on a computer or iPad and recognise that a range of technology is used in schools, for example, camera, iPad, flip-cam.     They use ICT hardware to interact with age-appropriate computer software.   They recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes, for example microwaves, telephones, mobiles.   They select and use technology for particular purposes.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                       Do all animals lay eggs?

This half-term we are learning all about eggs. 

  • We have been researching animals that lay eggs and have found out lots of interesting facts. 
  • We have been learning new words such as, reptiles and gastropods. 
  • We have looked carefully at eggs.
  • We have learned new vocabulary such as, albumen and chalaza.
  • We have mixed eggs to see what happened.
  • We have been experimenting with eggs to see if we could make a bouncy egg.  
  • We have put eggs in water, oil and vinegar to see if they changed. 

We have been experimenting to see if we could make an egg float.

We have made a collage of animals that lay eggs.

 

You will need to keep watching to find out if we made a bouncy egg!
