Science is the main focus this term when the pupils learn about the Human Body and the different body systems; such as the circulatory system the importance of having a healthy heart.  Linking with this, we will be investigating healthy eating and even looking at the ingredients on food wrappers has led to some interesting comments.  Small packets of Juicy Fruits have more saturated fats than a bar of chocolate!

The reproductive system is taught alongside the human body and we will be visiting the zoo in April to find out about mammals and their young.

Substance abuse is another part of our science learning.  We will discover the different kinds of substances which can damage our body and how this in turns, can affect our relationships with friends and families.
