This programme uses your school grounds, or an area local to your school, to allow pupils to explore and answer questions about plants growing in their habitat.
Children will become familiar with common names of flowers and look at examples of deciduous and evergreen trees. They work scientifically by observing and recording the growth of a variety of plants. Older children set up a comparative test to show that plants need light and water to grow and compare the effect of different factors on plant growth. Learners will explore the life cycle of flowering plants including pollination and seed dispersal.
- Identifying and naming a variety of common plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees
