  • Science: Today we are looking at the different parts of a plant. First watch this video: Flower Parts Video

Then have a look at these slides to find out about the parts and where they go: Labelling a Flower

Now have a go at this activity. Where are each of the 4 parts on the plant? Can you label them? Find it here: Labelling a Flower Activity

If you would like to continue your learning, you could go into the garden and see if you can spot the 4 parts we have learnt about on a flower you find.

  • Art: Now that you have learnt about flowers, see if you can create your own flower and label all the parts. You could draw, paint, collage or junk model your flower. Make sure you remember to show the roots somehow! Then draw lines to each of the 4 main parts you have learnt about and label using the words:

leaf

stem

petal

root
