This week we have truly taken advantage of the warmer weather. For our summer science topic we are learning about plants and firstly we learnt what a plant is. We all went onto the field for a plant hunt. The children found many different kinds of plant including bluebells, grass, daffodils, daisies and buttercups and they enjoyed creating a plant collage. Next we learnt about the different parts of a flowering plant. All the pupils dissected a tulip with a partner and located the stem, leaves, flowers and roots. We even learnt that flowers are made up of petals and different types of flowers have a different number of petals. Finally we learnt that a tree is also a kind of plant. We learnt about the parts of the tree and made some bark rubbings on the trunks.
