Year 5 observe plants at Forest School

Elmhurst School for Boys

16th February 2016 | Forest School

At Forest School, Year 5 boys have been making detailed observations of the plants and trees at this time of year. They have discussed different types of seeds and reasons why seed dispersal is important. They saw emerging bluebells and talked about bulbs reproducing without pollination.

This week, the boys considered the role of flowers in the reproduction cycle of plants. The boys designed their own stamens or carpel and discussed how their design would spread or capture pollen. There were some ingenious ideas and novel approaches to the task.
