In Science, children in Year 2 have been learning to explain that life processes can tell us if something is living, dead or has never been alive.
They learn that all living things do certain things to stay alive and that are called life processes. They need food, water and air to stay alive. The can move, grow and reproduce.
Non-living things can be things that were once living or part of a living thing, or they can be things that have never been alive. They do not need food, water or air and cannot reproduce.
