Science

Did you know that the worlds largest flower is over 1 metre wide and can weigh up to 10Kg?  It's called a Rafflesia and is native to the rainforests of Sumatra and Borneo. 

Last week we started to learn about plants and many of you drew and labelled a plant (your pictures are on the photo gallery).  Today I would like you to watch this quick powerpoint (below) then go outside and list the plants that you can find.  If you don't have a garden make the list whilst you are out on your walk.  Can you find ten different different plants?  They can be wild or garden plants.  

Make the list in your red literacy books.  Send me your lists so I can see what you find.  

Optional If you would like to draw some of the plants that you can find, that would be lovely, but this is optional.

    

Watch this short power point before you head outside to look for plants.

If you have some seeds, have a go at growing some of your own plants.  Peas, beans, nasturtiums, sunflowers and sweetcorn are all easy for children to grow because the seeds are large enough for them to handle.  If you have any success, send me your pictures.
