Y3 Growing Seeds

Pupils discuss with a partner/group what they think seeds need to help them to start growing. After this discussion pupils visit a resource table and make a number of different planting pots, each of which are different. Pupils then sprinkle cress seeds into each pot and make a prediction saying what they think will happen in each of the pots to the cress seeds in each of the pots.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - explore the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow)
  • WS - pupils should compare the effect of different factors on plant growth; asking relevant questions and using different types of scientific enquiries to answer them; record findings using simple scientific language, drawings, labelled diagrams, keys, bar charts, and tables
