In Science, Year Two have been learning about what animals need to survive – water, air, food and shelter. Sometimes, animals might not have everything they need, but there are things we can do to help. The children came up with lots of brilliant ideas including putting bird feeders and bird baths in the garden.
Year Two learned that a microhabitat is a very small habitat. These can be under stones and rocks, in short grass and under fallen leaves. They learned that minibeasts often live in microhabitats. This week, the children have created their own microhabitat – a bug hotel. They had to roll paper into tubes and place them into a paper cup. Then, they added leaves to make their microhabitat even more inviting.
