Y2 science: the human life cycle

Today we discovered all about how humans mature. We put a human life cycle into order and discussed what humans can and can’t do at each stage.

Working with our group we created venn diagrams to show how each stage of the life cycle differs. Everyone worked so well with their group.

Our final activity was to investigate the question: are the oldest pupils in the class the tallest? We made our predictions, gathered our equipment and got measuring.

We discovered the tallest child in our class is the second oldest, and the youngest is the second tallest! This led to a interesting discussion about DNA, genetics and how everyone is different. Great work today Year 2!
