Green Plants

In Science this term, we have been looking at green plants. We are now able to identify key parts to a plant and we also know how to keep a plant healthy. Yesterday we took a look inside different fruits to see where seeds came from. We were very surprised to see that a tiny strawberry had more seeds than a banana!

We were also investigating different types of seeds – below are some pictures of seeds we were categorising by shape, colour and size! We looked at pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds golden linseeds and sesame seeds. Some of Amber class had never seen these seeds before!

Our Science topic this term will be Green Plants. Your task is to identify as many green plants as possible around your home, your surrounding area or on your way to school over the next few days. Then tell us some interesting information about them. You could draw these plants and label the different parts, you may choose to take photographs of them or you could research these plants a bit further and tell us some facts about them.
