Y3 Conditions for Plant Growth

Pupils have to think about what plants need for healthy growth. They record their thoughts in a list and then have to design an investigation to see if the things on this list were correct.


Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - explore the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant
  • NaG - pupils should be introduced to the relationship between structure and function: the idea that every part has a job to do
  • WS - pupils should ask relevant questions and use different types of scientific enquiries to answer them; record findings using simple scientific language, drawings, labelled diagrams, keys, bar charts and tables; use straightforward scientific evidence to answer questions or to support their findings
