Y3 Insect Pollination

Pupils learn that plants can be pollinated by either insects or the wind. They learn that plants have structures that help them to be successful with pollination and that these structures differ between insect and wind pollinated plants. They learn that a flower has evolved to attract insects and help the plant with pollination. Pupils carry out an investigation to see which type of insects visit flowers to help them with pollination.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem, leaves and flowers; explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal
  • 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 gather, record, classify and present data in a variety of ways to help in answering questions
