We’ve been chopping up plants today.

In a scientific manner, that is. That’s called dissection, and using careful teamwork and observation, we’ve been able to sort and classify all the parts of the flower today.

And then we really DID chop up the flowers and essentially made salad. But a great deal of science was unearthed in the process!

Bad news: Despite careful, loving attention to their well-being, our class plants are still steadfastly looking more like class pots…

It’s all about plants at the moment…

We now have class plants! Well, the potential for them at least. We have some anemones that we are looking after, and have monitors ensuring they are well cared for:

There is strong evidence that looking after other living things really helps to raise our own well being. And we can always use the extra oxygen!

We are also studying plants in our Science work at the moment:


We have discussed what plants need in order to grow well, and we’ve now devised an experiment to study the effects of removing each of these necessities.

Do be sure to find out all about it from your child!
