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 a number of plants depending on how they disperse their seeds.

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
