Fantastic Flowers 

 

This week’s science task is all about flowers. The aim is for you to be able to name the different parts of a flower and explain their role in pollination and fertilisation. 

 

Use this Power Point and the activity sheets to guide you through the lesson: 

Science WC 6.7.20

 

This week you are going to investigate the way in which water is transported within plants by observing the transport of food colouring through a flower stem. This means another experiment! Yes! 

Use the Power Point below to guide you through the experiment: 

 

Then use these activity sheets to make your predictions and share your observations: 

 

Here are some example conclusions to help you if needed

Plants: What do plants need to grow well?  

  

Last week we asked you to investigate what a plant needs in order to live and grow well and now its time to assess what you found out!  

  

You will need to follow this Power Point to help you follow the steps to describe what you found out: 

Following that, we have another activity for you. 

 

You have been asked to use your scientific findings to create a TV programme to show people how to look after their plants!

 

 Use this activity sheet to plan your thoughts before presenting your findings! You don't have to print it our, you can have it on your screen and use the headings to write in your books.

Plants: What do plants need to grow well? 

It’s investigation time! 

 

This week we’d like you to investigate what a plant needs in order to live and grow well. 

 

You will need to follow this Power Point to help you complete a fair and accurate investigation at home. 

Here are the activity sheets to help you set out your investigation: 

At the end you should be able to share with us what a plant needs to grow well! 

 

If you need any extra help then this BBC Bitesize video will come in handy:

Parts of Plants 

This week we’d like you to focus on the different parts of a plant. Can you find out what each part does and why a plant needs it? 

Use this power point and BBC Bitesize video to see what you can find out: 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpxnyrd/articles/z3wpsbk 

 

Then see if you can have a go at these activities:  

There is a word mat here to help in case you get stuck:

Living things: Bees  

 

We hope you all enjoyed your bee hunt last week! There’s been some great pictures shared on the blog of some of the bees you’ve found and the trips you’ve been on looking for them! 

 

This week we’d like you to focus on finding out about the different parts that make a bee a bee. You are going create a labelled diagram of the different parts of a bee with captions to describe what each part does.  

Use this information to help you: 

http://naturemappingfoundation.org/natmap/facts/honey_bee_k6.html 

You can present this however you like but we would suggest printing a picture of a bee (you can use this one if you like!) that you can then label and add captions too. 

 

Science - Week Commencing 4.6.20

 

Are you in the mood for some hunting? We hope so! This week, we'd like you to go on a bee hunt. Below is a list of a few common bees found in the UK. Can you, with a grown-up, go into a garden or a park area and look for some bees?

Hint: Where there are flowers - there are usually bees!

 

Here is a bee Miss Wain found when she was doing here daily exercise, can you identify what type of bee it is?
