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.
