This week's lesson is called Seeds and Bulbs. You are going to be following instructions to plant a sunflower seed and also making predictions about how plants will grow in particular conditions.

 

I have posted each of you three dwarf sunflower seeds which I hope will arrive with you in the next couple of days. In the meantime, if you want to make a start on your Science, there are some activities you can get on with.

 

I have made a little video to explain some of the different parts of the lesson. Please use the link below to download the video. (I have tested it out and it did work for me so I really hope it works for all of you!)

After you have watched the video, spend some time going through the PowerPoint below.

 

On slide 18 you will need to use the Plant Growth Prediction PDF below. Think carefully about the conditions for each plant and write down your predictions on the sheet.

 

As I explained in the video, you are each going to keep a sunflower diary (see My Sunflower Diary PDF below). Every week I would like you to complete a page of the diary to show and explain what has happened to your sunflower plant. You will be able to draw pictures or take photos to show what the plants look like. This week, I would like you to complete page 2 of the diary and write a simple set of instructions to explain how you planted the sunflower and the equipment you needed.

 

Additional activities:

I have also attached below some short reading comprehensions linked to our Science topic as well as a Plants Word search. There is no pressure to complete these but I know some of you enjoy these kinds of activities!

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU HAVE A WEEK TO COMPLETE THIS TASK.

IT IS DUE IN ON MONDAY 15TH JUNE.
