Spring Topic 5





The focus for the next couple of weeks is Science. Throughout this topic, we will be exploring plants and their life cycle, planting and experimenting with how plants grow best. We will end the topic with a gardening day with Year 1. We will be experimenting with plants during our topic to practise our scientific skills.

This knowledge organiser has everything we will be learning in this topic.

Learning objectives:

  • observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants
  • Find out and describe how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow
    and stay healthy


We will be learning scientifically by:

  • Asking questions 
  • Observing and recording our observations
  • Creating a fair test  
  • Describing our results 




We are continuing to read 'The Night Gardener' and we will be writing a narrative and a diary this half term. 


Our new class book for this topic is 'The secret Sky Garden'
