Plants in our local area

In science this week we looked at the plants in our local area.

We identified some common wildflowers such as dandelions, daisies and clovers. We also identified some garden plants such as bluebells and daffodils.

We then explored 4 different areas of our school grounds to try and find out where we can find the most plants. We found out that most wildflowers grow on the field and that most garden plants are found by the pond. We used hula hoops to take small samples of different areas. We enjoyed counting all the daisies on the field- some of us even counted more than 40!

How you can help at home:

  • Take a small area in your garden or local park and count how many wildflowers/ garden flowers you can see.
  • Complete an observation over time of a wildflower or garden plant – what changes take place?
  • Draw and label the key parts of a plant.
