The children will also explore the scientific relationships between the Earth, sun and Moon and the effects they have on our lives.

As the term progresses the children will learn about plant life processes such as growth, photosynthesis, pollination and seed dispersal. The children will also be finding out about life processes related to humans.

As well as this the children will be looking at the links between plants and animals in food webs and food chains.
