In Science we will be learning all about plants. We will learn the names for their different parts and what jobs they have to help the plant grow. We will be growing our own sunflowers from a seed and observing the changes the plant goes through. By growing our own plants we will see that a plant needs soil, water and air to grow. We will also be learning the names of a variety of garden and wild plants.
|Flower||The colourful part with petals at the top of some plants. Attract insects and animals to pollinate the plant and help it produce seeds.|
|Leaves||Leaves use sunlight to make food for the plant to grow.|
|Stem||The middle part of a plant that holds it upright and transports water and nutrients around it.|
|Roots||The roots hold the plant in the ground and absorb water and nutrients for the plant from the soil.|
|Nutrients||The substances that provide food for the plant.|
|Absorb||To suck into the plant from its surroundings.|
|Wild plants||Wild plants grow where their seed falls. They do not need to be looked after or cared for to grow.|
|Garden plants||These plants have been chosen by people to grow in their garden and are looked after to make sure they grow well.|
