Flowering Plants

As part of our Science topic, year 5 have learned all about flowering plants.

The children have explored our nature garden to look for seeds, thought about the life cycle of a plant and been able to explain the function of the roots, stem, leaf and flower.

Year 5 have done some fantastic research on the uses of plants, before dissecting some beautiful flowers.

The whole class now know where to find the following male (stamen) and female (carpel) parts of a flower:

filament
anther
pollen
style
stigma
ovary

Year 5 can explain how a flower reproduces. Do you know as much as our Science experts?
Ask year 5!

Say NO to bullying!

For anti-bullying week, year 5 worked with some visitors from a drama company.

They used drama techniques to think about solutions to various situations where people may not be making the right choices. They learned to be empowered and act on things that may happen to them.

A particularly enjoyable part of the lesson involved children acting out different types of bullying and finding a solution with their group.

As you can see, year 5 are very good at drama!
