Reproduction in Plants 1/02/21
This term, the Year 5 children are studying ‘Living Things and Their Habitats’ and on Tuesday 26th January, they explored reproduction in plants. The children looked at the various ways in which plants grow and even experimented with cloning plants by growing new ones from cuttings. They enjoyed filling their plastic cups with potting compost and placing their cuttings in a hole in the soil. They were then asked to do the ‘100 Word Challenge’ where they had to describe ways in which plants reproduce asexually in one hundred words, giving examples of plants that reproduce in this way, and using scientific words in their description. The children will continue to monitor the growth of their new plants and use this observation to embed their learning on plant reproduction.
