Plants (Weekly Science)

Monday 12th July

 

This week I'd like you to remind yourself of some of the science topics we've learnt about in Year 3. To begin with let's look at rocks and animals, including humans.

 

 

Monday 6th July

 

This week I'd like you to think about everything you've learnt about plants over the past few weeks. Think about the different parts of a plant and the jobs they do. Think about what plants need to grow and how plants ensure new plants grow. Using all this information, make a booklet or a poster all about plants. 

Monday 29th June

 

This week we are learning about seeds and how they are dispersed. Below are some slides showing you different ways that plants spread their seeds so new plants grow. After you have read the slides there is a sorting activity for you to try.

Week beginning Monday 22nd June

 

This week are going to look at flowers and the different parts of a flower. Look at the slides below. Next, watch the video clip and then try the worksheet.

 

 

Monday 15th June

 

This week we are going to look at how water travels through plants. Below are some slides for you to read. Once you have read the slides there is an experiment to try. You will need some celery, some water and some food colouring. 

First of all look at a piece of celery. Look carefully at each end. Next, add some food colouring to a small amount of water in a cup or pot. After that, place a piece of celery into the cup and over the next few days observe the stick of celery. What happens? Once you have compared the celery at the beginning and then a few days later complete the follow up activity below.  There are 3 levels of challenge to choose from. 

 

 

Our science topic this half term is plants. This week I'd like you to take a good look around you, maybe in your garden or on a walk. How many different plants can you name? Ask a grown up to help you.

 

Also this week I'd like you to name the different parts of a plant and research what each part of the plant does. You can either complete the sheet below or draw the picture (from the sheet) and label the parts in your book.
