Reproduction in plants
We have thoroughly enjoyed the start to the Summer Term, as the children have returned refreshed and ready to learn. In our English lessons, we have started reading our new core text, Journey to Jo'Burg, and we have already been impressed with the well balanced and thoughtful comments the children have made in relation to the racial themes discussed in the book. We have also started a new science unit - living things and their habitats. This week we learnt about sexual reproduction in plants and how seeds are made. We were able to bring the learning to life as after discussing the reproductive features of a flower in the classroom, the children went into the garden and examined them for themselves. They were able to identify the anther, filament, stigma and style of several flowers. Have a look in the science section on our Year 5 page to see more photos from this lesson.
