Lower School Science – Healthy Animals

Lower School Nurture’s Science topic this term is “Healthy Animals (including humans)”. Part of this topic has been looking at how offspring grow into adults, and the basic needs of animals and humans to stay healthy. As part of this they have been looking at human babies, how they are similar and different to human children and adults, and what they need to stay happy and healthy. To help them with this Mr Cope’s 7month old daughter, Sophie, came to visit us. The pupils had to think of suitable questions to ask Mr Cope and his wife, Clare, about looking after Sophie and how they keep her safe and healthy. The pupil’s then took turns asking their questions. The pupil’s really enjoyed the visit and interacted brilliantly with both Clare and Sophie, and learnt a lot about how we look after babies to keep them healthy.
