How does your garden grow?
We will begin our topic with an inspirational starter day where we will be doing lots of exciting activities. We will go on a hunt around the school gardens to investigate the parts of plants, do some gardening of our own and complete a scientific investigation!
Over the 3 week topic...

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