• identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees;
• describe the basic structure of a variety of common flowering plants, including trees.
Pupils learn to identify a range of common plants. They sort these plants into two groups, 'Garden' and 'Wild' flowers. Pupils extend their knowledge of plants by further sorting parts of plants into 'flowers', 'seeds' and fruits. A cut and paste activity.
