Science

Science takes place on Thursday afternoon with Mrs Probert and science home learning will be set every week. 

 

Spring Term

 

This half term we will be learning all about plants. This also links to our topic of 'The Rainforest' 

 

 

By the end of this science topic, children should be able to:

 

  • identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers

 

  • explore the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant

 

  • Investigate the way in which water is transported within plants

 

  • Explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.
