Y4 Science – Living Things and Their Habitats

  • 21st Apr, 2020 at 6:15pm

Dear Parents/Carers,

Members of the Association for Science Education have been working extremely hard to put together a set of lessons that are designed to be easily accessible to children and parents in a home environment. The lessons include an easy to follow guidance for parents with an explanation of key concepts, suggested activities for children and finally examples of possible learning outcomes to make it easier for parents to support the learning. I hope you will enjoy using these resources and find them useful in what is a challenging time for us all. Best wishes and stay well, Mrs. Agnieszka Barden

      Hi Georgia,
      your vegetable garden looks fabulous!!! I am really jealous.
      We have planted cucumbers, tomatoes and some sunflower seeds but they are nowhere near as good as yours yet. Lots of lovely fresh salads in your house soon.

      Thank you for keeping in touch!
      Stay safe and lots of love,
      Mrs Barden xx

    Hi Mrs. Barden
    I have been doing some research about The Arctic and The Desert and the different kinds of animals that live there. I have also been learning about hedgehogs 🦔. Today I am going to go into the garden and make a home for them and leave some food for them. I have never seen a hedgehog in my garden but I might do soon. I know that they like dog food but I haven’t got any but there are lots of slugs, snails and worms for them to eat.

      You have been working really hard, Georgia, well done!!

      I have never seen any hedgehogs in my garden either, so let me know of your hedgehog house works, please.

      What are the main differences between the Arctic and the desert habitat?

      Wow, Georgia!! Brilliant work on micro-habitats. You will have to show it to me in person when we see each other next. Hope it won’t be too long. Stay safe xx

    Today I did an experiment to see if I could find any worms in the garden. I watched a video and in the video they made a mustard solution so I made one too. I poured it in the grass to see if any worms come up. I waited a long time but nothing happened. I did find lots of other insects though. I also did a mind map of the different micro habitats that were in my garden.

      Really sorry to hear your mustard solution did not work but that’s exactly what being a scientist is about. Not everything works first time, it takes time and perseverance.
      It has been very dry recently and the worms would have been hiding deeper in the soil where there is more moisture. Now we have had some rain, maybe you should try the solution again.
      let me know if you do. Keep in touch xx
