Science – Year 2 Human Nutrition

This week our year 2 scientists explored nutrition as part of our ongoing inquiry into animals and humans. We recalled what we know about animals’ eating habits and can explain that they are either carnivores, omnivores or herbivores. We discussed human nutrition asking: “What foods do we need to eat to stay healthy and grow strong?” We had fun learning about different food groups and what nutrients they contain by playing a food guessing game, ‘What’s in the box?’ We then designed our own healthy meals on plates.

What’s in the food box? Why are oats good for us?
We love eating apples and they contain vitamins.
Designing a balanced meal with food from different food groups.

We’ve explored human nutrition and learnt why we need to eat a balanced range of foods.
