Scientists and designers!

This week we have mixed up Year 5 classes and have covered science topics. We have looked at the classification system, different life cycles and have now moved on to focus on plants. At the beginning of the week we looked at the life cycle of a plant and discussed the different stages: such as germination, pollination and seed dispersal. We then continued to look at the process of pollination and how this fertilises a seed. After looking at this in detail and identifying the different parts, we decided to design a model which would show the process of pollination occurring.

The children worked in pairs or groups and used a variety of resources (magnets, paper clips, paper cups, and tubes) to create a model that would represent the process of pollination occurring. They had to use their scientific knowledge to represent the different parts of the plant.

What was your favourite part of today’s lesson? Can you remember the different parts of the plant?

Here are some pictures of us in the process of creating our models!

I really liked learning how a plant reproduces and how pollen can get to one plant to another. I also liked making models of plants and making them work as a normal plant. Thank you for one of the best science weeks ever!

I’m glad you enjoyed it Alisa! I love the detail in the diagram that you have done too- I wonder if you could share it with others tomorrow?

I loved science week because it was fun learning about how a plant gets the pollen it sticks on the insect and that’s how a plant reproduces ??

I really enjoyed this week because i got to work with my friends.
my favourite part was making the pollen systems
