Our first 3 week topic will be...

Plants
and
Desktop Publishing

 

We will begin our topic with an inspirational starter day where we will be doing lots of exciting activities. We will visit Primrose Hill Garden Centre to investigate the parts of plant and do some gardening of our own.

 

 Over the 3 week topic...
...as scientists we will:

• identify and describe the functions of the different parts of a flowering plant- roots, stem, leaves and flowers

• explore what plants need for life and growth and how they vary from plant to plant

• investigate how water is transported within plants

• explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of plants, including pollination, seed formation and dispersal

...as computer scientists we will:

  • understand some elements of survey design 
  • understand some ethical and legal aspects of online data collection
  • use the web to facilitate data collection
  • gain skills in using charts to analyse data
  • gain skills in interpreting results

 

 

Our first class book will be the classic 'The Magic Faraway Tree' by Enid Blyton
