Autumn Term 1

Growing Up and Growing Old- 

During this topic the children will be studying how humans develop and investigating the gestation periods of different animals. We will be discussing the changes that happens as we grow from .Babies- toddlers- teenagers - adults- elderly. We will be looking at how bodies change through childhood into adulthood. Once into adulthood, the children will be considering how the needs of humans change as they become elderly.

As Scientists we will be able to :

  •  describe some of the changes that happen as humans develop.
  • describe what happens during pregnancy
  • describe how our height changes as we get older
  •  think about the changes that happen as we enter old age.
