What are Year 5 doing in the greenhouse?

Leave a comment

In their science lessons last week, Year 5 pupils learned in more detail about the life cycle of flowering plants. To give them some practical follow-up, Miss Hopwood took the class to Mr Young’s greenhouse today, where he gave them each their own packet of plant seeds and then helped them to plant them. Mr Young also decided to test the children’s knowledge of germination, flowering, pollination and seed dispersal, and was impressed with their answers!

The Year 5 classroom should soon have some seedlings and, later, some wonderful, colourful flowers on show – we even have some edible ones!
