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.
