Y6 Classifying and Grouping Plants

Pupils learn that plants can be grouped in a variety of ways and that one of these ways depends on how the plant disperses its seeds. Pupils then group plants according to the way they disperse their seeds (a cut and paste activity).

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro-organisms, plants and animals
  • NaG - pupils should build on their learning about grouping living things in Year 4 by looking at the classification system in more detail
  • WS - pupils might work scientifically by: devising classification systems and keys to identify some animals and plants in the immediate environment
