This term in Science we will be learning about plants.
We will be learning about different types of plants and what is needed for them to grow and stay healthy. Also we will learn new vocabulary relating to the various parts of the plants and its growth cycle.
In addition to this we will also give the opportunity for pupils to observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants.
Plants may grow from either seeds or bulbs. These then germinate and grow into seedlings which then continue to grow into mature plants. These mature plants may have flowers which then develop into seeds, berries, fruits etc. Seeds and bulbs need to be planted outside at particular times of year and they will germinate and grow at different rates. Some plants are better suited to growing in full sun and some grow better in partial or full shade. Plants also need different amounts of water and space to grow well and stay healthy.
This topic explores how to stay healthy, both physically and mentally. It explores ways to maintain wellbeing and prevent illness, how to develop a healthy, balanced lifestyle and the consequences and effects of different habits and choices. It encourages the development of positive self-worth and recognition, what might affect or influence unhealthy ways of thinking, and how to overcome this.
We will also be exploring how people grow and change from babies, through puberty to adulthood and examine ways in which children have grown and how they will continue to change, and how to develop resilience.
This term in P.E we will be focusing on athletics.
