1.1. Students will map out all they know about both 'science' and 'living things'.

1.2. Preassessment to include a section that asks the children about what they think the theme wants them to explore

2. 2. Finding Out

6. 4. Going Further

6.1. Children investigate ways they can organise what they've acheived to now.

6.2. They will be encouraged to view the Central Idea in a Transdisciplinary, cross-curricular manner and see how their essential question can relate to other areas of learning such as data management in maths.
