Mrs Biddle has included some 'Science' learning activities.
 
BBC Bitesize Science has some lovely little clips to explain things we are currently learning in Science. Look specifically at 'Animals' and 'Habitats and the Environment'. As it is now Spring the children could also look at 'Plants' and try growing something at home and keeping a diary, making sketches and noting their observations every few days.
