KS2/3 Groups Creating Topic based Posters in Science!
Our KS3 home-schooled children has created posters based on various topics such as how we obtain food, food groups, and a balanced diet which they have covered over the last half-term.
A balanced diet contains the different nutrients in the correct amounts to keep us healthy.
Imbalanced diets can cause obesity, starvation and deficiency diseases.
The children have discussed areas in detail such as energy, looking at factors that affect this.
Other topics covered have been related to how a plant makes its own food- the process of photosynthesis.
Plants make food using photosynthesis. This needs light, carbon dioxide and water.
It produces glucose, and oxygen as a by-product. Leaves are adapted to carry out photosynthesis.
KS2 children have also been busy creating posters based on the topic Do all bees make honey?
Many flowering plants require bees for pollination and attract them to their reproductive structures with scented and sugary nectar.
Bees have special body parts for drinking and collecting nectar and pollen from flowers.
Not all bees produce abundant honey. In fact, certain species of bees produce no honey at all.
However, all bees depend on flowers for food, and flowering plants depend on bees for pollination.
The children have been sharing what they know about bees and any observations they’ve made about bees in nature.
They then went on to complete the activities, review the concept of adaptation and examine an illustration of a beehive.
