Our science topic in Year 5 for the spring term is all about learning about the different stages of the life cycle. The pupils have been looking how humans start off as a foetus, then grow as babies, toddlers, children, teenagers, young adults, adults and then old age.
We have also been relating this knowledge to other species. The pupils have been comparing the life stages of humans with the similar growth developments in dogs.
We were very fortunate in that class member Brooke has a three month old puppy. Brooke’s Mum very kindly agreed to bring Nacho the puppy into the class for a brief visit. The pupils had plenty of questions to ask. Nacho seemed to enjoy his Year 5 visit!
