In Term 6 we will continue to learn about plants. We are going to create our own garden within the classroom and fill it with beautiful flowers. In science, we will explore the school environment and discover what plants grow. We will dissect plants and label the different parts. We will conduct an experiment to discover the ideal conditions to grow a sunflower. With this knowledge, we will create a video for 'Gardeners World' explaining how to plant a sunflower seed and justify the best conditions to grow it in. We will then use ICT to create our own animation to explain how to grow plants. In DT, we will use famous painting of plants as inspiration to create our own textile version. We will learn how to sew including the running stitch.
