Location: Delivered on site

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.

Activities include:

  • Identifying and naming a variety of common plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees
  • Discover and describe how plants need water, light and warmth to grow and stay healthy
  • Identify the functions of different parts of flowering plants

Studies:

Learners use the local environment to observe how plants grow and observe the growth of a variety of different plants.
They explore the requirements of plants for life and growth and explore pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.

“Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year” (Sugg)

What People Say

The children thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor activities.  All the children were eager and excited to find out more.  A fantastic day – managed and delivered very well.  A really interesting way to focus on our topic of the Great Fire of London.

Cara Morton, Dubmire Primary School

A very useful CPD that delivered ideas for creative outdoor activities and experiments for science as well as cross curricular links. Thank you for a great day!

Gemma Preece, St Oswald’s

Sam’s approach to our science topic, ‘dissolving’, promoted autonomy and self discovery. The children learnt some theory, put the theory into practise and then explained what had happened – the children loved it! I have learnt that the children need to have time for self discovery in order to better understand science. Sam was extremely organised and it made for a stress free activity day. I’d seriously recommend Sam to other schools, he’s great!

Dawn Whaley, Hartside Primary School

The session was booked to enhance the children’s imagination – it definitely delivered on this! The day was organised brilliantly and was enjojed by both children and adults….the children were asking when you were coming back for the rest of the week!

Amy Foster, Delves Lane Primary

A great hands-on training day – loads of new ideas and I now feel more confident to use the outdoors with children.
