In term 1, we will begin our science topic about the wonderful world of plants. We will learn to:
- Identify and describe the functions of different parts of plants; roots, stem, leaves and flowers.
- Explore the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, nutrients from soil and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant.
- Investigate the ways in which water is transported within plants.
- Explore the role of flowers in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal
The following game is great for understanding the different parts of a plant and labelling them.
What new knowledge can you learn from these interesting plant facts?
There are also some fun plant experiments that you can try at home:
