Year 1 Weather and Seasons, Plants and Animals

Science Enquiry

Year 1

Plants, Humans and Materials


In year 1 we planted beans and observed them growing over a few weeks. We learnt how plants need water, sunlight, soil and warmth to grow healthy. We investigated the best conditions to grow cress seeds.


In our human body topic we learnt about the different parts of a human body.


For our animal’s topic, we investigated where woodlice prefer to live.  We made a home with different things, like twigs, soil, rocks and leaves. We found out woodlice like to live in dark, damp places.


We enjoy investigating in science because it is fun. We like to find out new things.
