Y2 Describing Local Habitats

Pupils visit two local habitats in or around their school. Before visiting these two habitats pupils predict which types of plants and animals they may find living there.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - 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 micro-habitats
  • NaG -pupils should be introduced to the terms ‘habitat’ (a natural environment or home of a variety of plants and animals) and ‘micro-habitat’ (a very small habitat, for example for woodlice under stones, logs or leaf litter).
  • WS - observing closely, using simple equipment
